I Have Done the Unthinkable (or, My First TBR)

From the Notebook videos are taking a break this week because I had to get my wisdom teeth out. Therefore, I’ve made a super crazy post for you guys!

If you’ve read My Life is a Notebook for any length of time, then you know that I don’t read widely. I like YA. I’m fine reading mostly YA. I do read other things but only when I really want to.

But as you may also know, I recently made a bookish resolution to do the Pop Sugar 2016 Reading Challenge with Michaela and … ooh boy. There are 40 categories on this list, and to save myself I’ve overlapped a few. Sorry. Reading is hard for me at school.

Below is my VERY TENTATIVE reading TBR for the challenge. I‘ve also made a bookshelf on Goodreads for it. Asterisks (*) mean books that me and Michaela will both be reading! Don’t miss Michaela’s own TBR for this challenge!

  1. A book based on a fairy tale

17927395

2. A National Book Award Winner

25489625

3. A book that’s more than 600 pages

so you want to be a wizard

24. A book guaranteed to bring you joy

25. A dystopian

26. A New York Times Bestseller*

This is hardly a complete list, but some of the other categories are going to take either some work for me (like a graphic novel) or are really easy and will naturally happen (like a book with a blue cover) or can’t be assigned right now (like first book you see in a bookstore). I’ll update my Goodreads TBR as I go!

God, this is going to be an interesting challenge.
