I recently revived my old StoryGraph account again… And yes, this was totally due to Goodreads finalizing those horrid changes to the book information pages. I will be using both, but I’ve been enjoying StoryGraph and the nifty stats they offer. (I’m yvo_about_books on there in case you want to add me.) I stumbled upon the POPSUGAR Reading Challenge while I was browsing the challenges, and I couldn’t resist finally joining. I’ve been meaning to for years… So this is me officially doing POPSUGAR this year!

Below I will be updating this post each month as I add more books to fit the different prompts… I already read quite a few that fitted the prompts, so that means I’m at least not too far behind. I’ve also added a tentative TBR for some of the remaining prompts.
