Popsugar 2018 Reading Challenge

My friends on BookCrossing led me to a new challenge, Popsugar Reading Challenge. Last year’s 666 was fun, but it was rather hard to find books from Oceania and South America, and I ended up reading a few books that I just read because I have to. I do not feel like doing it again so soon. Meanwhile, the Book Riot one which I have been participating every year, seems to get too hung up on color and sexual orientation. A new challenge is therefore most welcome.

Finished this in time. Though not the Advanced ones. I was too busy studying for the exam in November, and work didn’t help with a few people short in our dept… a management team of 5 left with only one… me.

Look forward to the 2019 challenge.
