Telling Tales | POPSUGAR Reading Challenge 2021

So, last year I managed a total of 23 out of 40 for the POPSUGAR Reading Challenge 2020, which was only slightly higher than the previous year. However, this year I’m going to aspire to go a little higher, taking part in the Advanced section in the challenge too. Fingers crossed I smash it! Anyways, here’s the prompts and some ideas for each of the 40 main prompts!

Telling Tales | 2020 POPSUGAR Reading Challenge RESULTS

So, last year, I managed to achieve over half of the prompts with a total of 22 out of 40. Now, I’m not sure whether this time round I’ll be so successful, admittedly forgetting the existence of this challenge for the majority of the year, but we’ll see!

Telling Tales | 2020 POPSUGAR Reading Challenge

Last year was my first year competing in the POPSUGAR Reading Challenge, in which I managed to complete 22 out of the initial 40 prompts. This year, I’m aiming a little higher and hoping to get at least 25 prompts completed. Much like last year, I’m not going to try and bother with the Advanced prompts yet, wanting to get a little higher before aiming to complete those. Either way, it’s going to be fun!

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! Continue reading “Telling Tales | 2019 POPSUGAR Reading Challenge RESULTS”

2019 | A (Late) Mid Year Goodreads Update

So, I’ve been away for a while, as explained in this post here, but I’ve still been reading as much as I can. It’s just that the internet connection where I am is awful, so I’ve not been able to post as much as I’d have liked to. However, while I have a little free time, I thought I’d post a catch up on everything I’ve read since my absence. Continue reading “2019 | A (Late) Mid Year Goodreads Update”

Telling Tales | 2019 POPSUGAR Reading Challenge

Since starting this blog, there’s been multiple occasions where I’ve considered participating in a Reading Challenge, yet never had the time or thought to research more into it until now. After a few Google searches, I came across the POPSUGAR Reading Challenge, which seems to be a fairly popular choice amongst bloggers. Although, a few of the prompts seem a little daunting to me, I’m looking forward to discovering a few hopefully future favourite reads.

Telling Tales | Independent Study Reading List 

As a third year university student, I have the misfortune to partake in my degree dissertation, or what my course refers to as an ‘Independent Study’. However, as I’m studying Creative Writing, I get to write a somewhat long creative piece of my own, on a topic of my choice. Basically, I’m using this as an excuse to explore a few of my favourite genres and make my to-be-read pile a little larger. This list mostly consists on retelling of classic literature and YA Fantasy, as my project is somewhat those spliced together. I’ve found a few I’m really excited to read, yet I’ll still include those I’ve already read as I’m planning on studying them a little more. Anyways, onto the list!
