BOOK: 2020 Reading Challenge


Okay! So I read a total of 24 books last year.
With all that is happening last year, and being able to surpass my book count, I’d like to dare myself to follow a reading challenge this year.
2019 Books
I asked one of my colleagues, who also loves reading to choose a book for me. I gave her a list of 25 categories in which she would get to pick what book.
So aside from the books that I personally want to read, I’d like to follow the list below:
1. Book becoming a movie in 2020 – P.S. I still love you by Jenny Han
2. Goodreads Winner in 2019 – The testaments by Margaret Atwood
