2017 PopSugar Reading Challenge

     I set for myself that unless I complete the 2016 PopSugar Reading Challenge I will not read for 2017 Challenge list and I failed. At the end of the 2017 I was falling behind and now had 2 lists on my hand and did not compete any.
    So I decided to "DNF" 2016 Reading Challenge completely and not waste my time on it anymore. And concentrate on 2017 instead. As a result out of 40 prompts I completed 36 and not going to read the last 4 in 2018, but start a new 2018 challenge.
