2016 Popsugar Reading Challenge


Confession: I’m terrible at completing reading challenges, usually because the books I pick tend to get put aside for other books. I’ve decided to go a different route in 2016 by participating in the The Popsugar Reading Challenge. It involves a list of prompts, and you have all of 2016 to get through them in any order. Yes, this means picking your own books, and you can change your mind as much as you want. I won’t actually pick books yet, but the list is below. Hope some of you join me!

  • A book based on a Fairy Tale
  • A National Book Award winner
  • A YA bestseller
  • A book you haven’t read since high school
  • A book set in your home state
  • A book translated to English
  • A romance set in the future
  • A book set in Europe
  • A book that’s under 150 pages
  • A New York Times bestseller
  • A book that’s becoming a movie this year
  • A book recommended by someone you just met
  • A self-improvement book
  • A book you can finish in a day
  • A book written by a celebrity
  • A political memoir
  • A book that’s at least 100 years older than you
  • A book that’s more than 600 pages
  • A book from Oprah’s Book Club
  • A science fiction novel
  • A graphic novel
  • A book published in 2016
  • A book with a protagonist with your occupation
  • A book that takes place during Summer
  • A book and its prequel
  • A murder mystery
  • A book written by a comedian
  • A dystopian novel

  1. I was going through and making a list of books that I have/want to read that would qualify for each of these and the ones I am struggling with is A book that is at least 100 years older than you and A book with a protagonist with your occupation

  2. Wow – that’s a ton of prompts!! I think the book 100 years older than me would be tough. Can you use the same book in multiple categories? I feel like “a book under 150 pages” and “a book you can read in a day” are kind of the same thing. Good luck!


  3. I would struggle with the self-help, the book of poetry and a book recommended by someone I just met. But the main thing is the number. I don’t read this many in a year, I typically read between 28 and 32 books a year. Then when you toss in book club picks that I wasn’t the chooser of, I wouldn’t be able to complete the list. Maybe I could customize the list for myself and then I may have some success.:)
