The Year of Finishing: 2019 Reading Challenge List, Part Two – Popsugar

Though the ATY Reading Challenge caught my attention for 2019, the Popsugar Reading Challenge captured by interest first. And so, I couldn’t set it aside completely in favor of the ATY. As it turns out, the two lists work pretty well together in helping me to complete or continue several of the book series I’ve started in recent years. Between the two, I will be able to read many books I’ve been looking forward to for awhile.
