Rad Reads 2022 Yearly Challenge

Before I get into the numerous recommendation posts that will go along with my Be Intentional Reading Challenge, I wanted to post the other Yearly Challenge I participate in. The Rad Reads challenge is in conjunction with Pop Culture Book Club, the Facebook Book club that I mod in. If you’d like to join the group and participate, we log our activity in a photo album. This is a challenge of 52 books and we read about 1 a week in the group! They’ll be listed in the order we’ll be reading them. This challenge is also available on The StoryGraph!

I didn’t get around to posting the Rad Reads 2021 list, but check out my post for the Rad Reads 2020 list!
