2015 PopSugar Reading Challenge Results

Do you remember this challenge that everyone loved and got excited about at the beginning of the year last year?  Did you keep up with it? Did you mark you books down? I did! Here's how it turned out for me:

  • A book set during Christmas: Landline
  • A book written by an author with your same initials: Illuminae
  • A banned book: Animal Farm
  • A book you started but never finished: Silver in the Blood

Some I didn't manage, or that I counted as another category:
  • a classic romance (why oh why did I not read a classic romance?)
  • a book of short stories
  • a nonfiction book 
  • a Pulitzer Prize winning book
  • a book your mom loves
  • a book based entirely on its cover (entirely?)
  • a book you were supposed to read in school but didn't (this book does not exist)
  • a book with bad reviews (not sure if this book exists either)
  • a trilogy (like a whole trilogy in one year?)
  • a book from your childhood (would a picture book count?)
  • a book with a color in the title (I had a few of these but used them for other categories)
  • a book that made you cry
  • a play
  • a book based on or turned into a TV show (I'd love to read The 100)
Here's next year's challenge list. What do you think? Are you in?


  1. Good job! :) I'm glad you had fun with it! I won't be doing this year's. I just don't feel the drive to it like I did with this year's list.

  2. You did good. I love that there's not a book you didn't read in high school. That's awesome! I never participate in these but after the fact I should see how many books I read that would match the criteria. Can you count one book for two categories or is that cheating?
