If you’ve been waiting for the official prompt list for next year’s POPSUGAR Reading Challenge, your wait is over! POPSUGAR released their list yesterday, along with a slideshow of prompt-fulfilling books on their website. Based on the flurry of posting I’ve seen on Goodreads, I think it’s safe to say that people are excited for the 2020 challenge.
In a previous post, I mentioned that I wasn’t going to make a commitment to participate in the challenge until I’d seen the complete list of prompts. Now that I have, I can definitely state that I will be participating next year.
Like I did for the 2019 Reading Challenge, I am making a few alterations to how I approach my reading next year:
- I am not going to limit myself to only reading books that fulfill Reading Challenge prompts. While I have chosen a few books that I know I will be reading next year, most of my reading is currently unplanned. I think it’s fun to be spontaneous in what I choose to read, and some of this year’s prompts are pretty general.
- I am not going to limit myself to reading only one book per reading prompt.
- While I will keep my fellow Goodreads group members updated on my progress throughout the challenge, the majority of my updates will occur here on The Unapologetic Bookworm. These updates will happen on Saturdays, beginning on January 4th, and will likely follow a specific (though yet to be determined) format.
- During the upcoming challenge, I will be giving you opportunities to have a say in how my Reading Challenge experience progresses. You will be able to do this by following me on Twitter @UnapologBkworm. (Following me on Twitter will also give you access to additional book recommendations, tweets about my life, and absolutely adorable pictures of my cat/velociraptor, Darcy.)
If you’re planning to participate in 2020’s POPSUGAR Reading Challenge (especially if you’re a newcomer to year-long reading challenges), I highly recommend joining the “Ultimate Popsugar Reading Challenge” group over on Goodreads. Not only does the group serve as a place to check-in regarding your progress, but the members give fantastic recommendations for books that fulfill specific reading prompts. They’re also really nice people who love to read!
Next year’s POPSUGAR Reading Challenge officially begins on January 1, 2020. I hope that you’ll follow my challenge journey here on The Unapologetic Bookworm, and also on Twitter @UnapologBkworm.
