Telling Tales | 2019 POPSUGAR Reading Challenge RESULTS

Earlier this year, I decided I was going to participate in the POPSUGAR 2019 Reading Challenge, with only attempting the first forty prompts as it was my first time. As it’s coming to the end of the year, I felt like it was time to review my prompts and see just how much I managed to get crossed off. I’m not expecting much, due to the events of the year, but I think I’ll aim for around 10. Fingers crossed!
