Maybe it's crazy, but the POPSUGAR Reading Challenge is one of my favorite things about the start of a new year. I love getting pumped up to read, and the prompts really get me to broaden my horizons. 

It's not secret thrillers are my favorite, but I love getting into different genres and reading something I wouldn't usually pick up - even if I end up not loving it. 

I say this every year, but I plan to stay on top of the challenge. This year, I only want to read books that meet a challenge prompt, before delving into a ton of other books. Hopefully, I'll be able to mark off my TBR list some of the books I own, but have never read. (It doesn't help I keep acquiring new books.) I didn't fully finish the 2016 challenge, and I've still got almost half left for 2017. But I'm convinced 2018 will be my year!

Anyways, keep scrolling for 2018's prompts, and a printable checklist below (I save the printable checklist to my phone and mark through the prompts I complete). I hope you'll keep up with my through 2018. I can't wait to see what you're reading.
