Popsugar Reading Challenge 2022

Every year since 2015, I have completed the Popsugar Reading Challenge to diversify my reading. Over the course of the last year, I would like to think that I have done this but I do like the prompts and it would still push me out of my reading taste.  I have put books that I want to read but I will fill it out over the year so stay tuned to find out what I want to read!  So let's see what I want to read this year and what the prompts are... A book published in 2022 Book I Want To Read: Book I Actually Read: A book set on a plane, train, or cruise ship Book I Want To Read: Book I Actually Read: A book about or set in a nonpatriarchal society Book I Want To Read: Book I Actually Read: A book with a tiger on the cover or "tiger" in the title  Book I Want To Read: Book I Actually Read: A sapphic book Book I Want To Read: Book I Actually Read: A book by a Latinx author Book I Want To Read: Book I Actually Read: A book with onomatopoeia in its title Book I Want To Read: Book I

Favourite Graphic Novels & Manga of 2021

As I have read a lot of books this year, I always want to give graphic novels and manga their own celebration as they often get overlooked and do make up a lot of my reading. I also find that even though I read a lot of them, it takes a lot to convince me and make it a new favourite. So here are my best...

Favourite Books 2021

My reading year has been a bit of a weird one. I know that I have read quite a lot but I always find picking my favourite books is difficult. I have obviously read some great books this year so here they are: The Anthropocene Reviewed by John Green  I love John Green, I feel that it is quite a well-known thing so it's no surprise that it made my favourite books of the year! The Anthropocene Reviewed is a pivotal book that represents current society. This book made me feel all the emotions. I laughed, almost cried and I tried to sit at the moment. It is a great book and I highly recommend especially if you wanted to give John Green a second chance.  T he Upper World by Femi Fadugba I had heard a lot about The Upper World a while before I read the book and I have to admit that I was really excited so it made me anticipate even more. I picked it up really quickly and raced through it. It was the last 100 pages that really got me as I finished it all in half an hour. I can't wait t
