2018 popsugar reading challenge: advance list

This is the advance list for the popsugar reading challenge that I have mentioned here and here. This is for those that are ambitious and want to further expand their reading challenge. I am hoping that I can get to this list because some of the prompts were very interesting. I might dedicate a month to this challenge and knock a lot of the books out.

Like I mentioned in my previous posts, these books are subject to change due to availability at my library or I just don’t like them. Click on the picture to be taken to the GR page.

•a best seller from the year you graduated high school

→Red Mist by Patricia Cornwell 

∇Reason I chose this was because it was on a best seller list for 2011, the year I graduated.



•a cyberpunk book

→Autonomous by Annalee Newitz

∇Reason I chose this was because it’s considered cyberpunk plus I have seen it floating around on GR.



•a book that was being read by a stranger in a public place.

→Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

∇Reason I chose this was because it was read by a staff I work with that I never see. I don’t take public transportation so I don’t really see people reading books while I’m out.



•a book tied to your ancestry

→In the Woods by Tana French

∇Reason I chose this is because I’m Irish and this book is set in Ireland.



•a book with a fruit or vegetable in the title

→A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess

∇Reason I chose this is because it has “orange” in the title plus I have been slightly interested in this since everyone says the movie is good.



•an allegory

→Animal Farm by George Orwell

∇Reason I chose this is because it represents old Soviet Russia during times of communism with animals. Plus I wanted a reason to re-read it.



•a book by an author with the same first or last name as you

→Unholy Alliance by Lacy Yager

∇Reason I chose this was because this author’s name is Lacy and it’s even spelled correctly!




•a microhistory

→A History of the Wife by Marilyn Yalum

∇Reason I chose this was because I have always been interested in learning more about marriage and how it became the way it did.



•a book about a problem facing society today

→Asking For It: The Alarming Rise of Rape Culture and What We Can Do About It by Kate Harding

∇Reason I chose this was because sexual assault has been in the forefront of news and I want to learn more about the movement to stop the rape culture.



•a book recommended by someone else taking the popsugar reading challenge

→The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel

∇Reason I chose this was because it was recommended by a member in the GR group for this challenge plus it sounds incredibly interesting.
