Cup of Tea’s 2022 Reading Challenge

It’s the first day of the year and that means the first day of a reading challenge! Try Cup of Tea’s Reading Challenge 2022 that will not only introduce you to new books and genres but help you tackle your TBR pile. Just like last year, I created the challenge on StoryGraph, where you can view the challenge prompts and add books that will help you complete the challenge!

Don’t know what StoryGraph is? Find out about this wonderful new alternative to Goodreads by reading more about it in my blogpost!

I was born and raised in New York. I still live in New York but kind of sick of the city and one day I wish to move to the UK.I have a Masters degree in Library Science and I currently work in a special collections library. I loved books ever since I was a little girl. Through the hard times in my life, my love for books has always gotten me through. Just entering another world different from my own intrigues me. As long as I am entering in another universe, I like to create my own as well. I love to write and hopefully I will be able to complete a novel.
