So, to conclude this post I finished 42 of 50 challenges, which isn’t bad since this was my first year doing one of these challenges. In one or two I decided to use one book for two challenges because I got into a reading slump that lasted about three months or so in the end of the year. I’m happy I did this and for next year I will do a reading challenge again, not the Popsugar one but the Around the Year in 52 books one, it seemed so much more fun than the 2016 Popsugar Challenge.

During this challenge I found some really great books, I even read my now all time favorite book, and in this list there’s also one or two that really was disappointing but books that other seemed to really love. It was a cool experience and I hope that 2016 will bring me just as great experiences as last year.

This is it for now. Talk to you soon. Bye! 🙂
