Popstar Reading Challenge 2019: My List.

If we’re being honest the amount of books I have read this year is a little bit on the light side. I had a couple of good months where I really made my way through some, but it definitely wasn’t consistent! However, I’m hoping that’s going to be different next year. I heard from a friend about this reading challenge and thought what better way to get some books off my TBR pile than to take part!! So I’ve listed the books I’m going to try and read next year below, anything in italics is a book that I need to purchase. Which would go against my ‘not buying any more books until I’ve read some’ mantra, but I managed to pick up at least three that I needed for less than a fiver at the charity shop – so I think I can make a few exceptions!
