Yearly Challenge: Rad Reads 2020

Hiya, I’m back with another yearly challenge from a new book group–The Pop Culture Book Club! This challenge is to read approximately one book a week, which adds up to 52 books in 2020! I’m going to do my best to review them all and hopefully post them here AND on Goodreads.

The challenge is called Rad Reads 2020 and covers a multitude of genres, but mainly has adult books. I’ve read about four books off of this list, so I’m excited to read something new and different. There’s also a handful of classics so I can’t wait to tackle them since Classics are not my favorite. I’ll drop the list below!
