2021 POPSUGAR Reading Challenge: A Foreword

Hi, friends! Thanks for joining me today; I’m so glad you’re here 💙. After 2020 and the thick layer of dust that settled on this blog, I decided I needed a fresh start. So, I’m back with my list of selections for the 2021 POPSUGAR Reading Challenge.

I will list my selection for each prompt, and, where relevant, I also included other titles that work for said prompt. So, whether you’re looking for book suggestions to fill some stray prompts or your TBR just needs some inspiration, here are 50+ ideas for your own list!

I will update this post throughout the year with ratings and links to reviews and wrap-ups where relevant. You can also easily view this list (without my ramblings) on Bookshop.org or Goodreads. Links to both can be found at the bottom of this post.

Snack Alert! This post is kind of a long one, so you might want to grab something to eat before diving in!

Now, on to the list!

Book cover for The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan.

The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

About the Book: If you’r enot familiar with the Percy Jackson and the Olympians (PJO) series, I’m so sorry for your loss. This was my favorite book in the fifth grade and, as I’m taking a break from the series written by the author who shall not be named, I thought it would make the perfect comfort read this year. The Lightning Thief and the rest of the PJO series follows Percy Jackson, a middle school boy, as he learns to navigate a new world to which he belongs: the world of half-bloods and demigods.

Related Works: I also considered reading The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang, The Mayor of Casterbridge by Thomas Hardy, and The Divine COmedy by Dante Alighieri.

Book Cover for The Beautiful Ones by Sylvia Moreno-Garcia

The Beautiful Ones by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

About the Book: First of all, how friggin’ stunning is this cover?! Second of all, shout out to Mina from Mina Reads on YouTube for making me aware of this book. The Beautiful Ones is a novel of manners — with a twist. The main character, Nina, is a telekinetic who falls in love with another, famous telekinetic. This man pursues her back, but he has some alterior motives of his own. What follows is a tale of romance, belonging, and true love, written by an author who is a master of genre.

The Traitor Baru Cormorant by Seth Dickinson

About the Book: This is the first book in Seth Dickinson’s Masquerade trilogy. The book follows Baru Cormorant as she climbs through the ranks of the Empire of Masks after the Masquerade kills her family and enslaves her people. This is a task she does only so she can eventually set her people free. She can only free them, though, once she passes her final test and untangles a complex web of treachery, and if she can manage to do all that while concealing her feelings for the Duchess Tain Hu.

Related Works: I also considered reading Sylvain Neuvel’s The Test for this prompt, but ended up choosing it for Prompt #42.

The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty

Nahri has to learn not only how to navigate court politics, but also her newly-discovered magical powers.

25. A book that was published anonymously.

Book Cover for Frankenstein: The 1818 Text by Mary Shelley

Frankenstein: The 1818 Text by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley

About the Book: I’m quite proud of myself for the fact that (besides The Lightning Thief) Frankenstein is my only reread of all the books I’ve selected for the 2021 POPSUGAR Reading Challenge. When I originally read it in 2019, I didn’t expect it to be so understated and philosophical. So I’m excited to revisit it not only with these adequate expectations, but also to read this original version that isn’t as widely published.

Related Works: I didn’t have any other anonymously-published books on my existing TBR, but if you’re willing to stretch the prompt a bit to include books originally published under a pseudonym, you could have a lot more options!

Book Cover for Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice

Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice

About the Book: The first book in Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles series probably needs no introduction. Despite its mixed reception at the time of release, the film adaptation remains one of the biggest cultural touchstones of 1990s cinema. It also stars two of my husbands, so I’m legally obligated to like the movie (good luck figuring out which two). I’m reading this for the prompt A book that was made into a movie from the 2015 POPSUGAR Reading Challenge.

Related Works: Umbert Eco’s Foucault’s Pendulum, wherein the characters travel from Milan (Italy) to Paris (France), also fits for this prompt.

32. A book whose title starts with “Q,” “X,” or “Z.”

Book Cover for The Quiet Americans by Scott Anderson

The Quiet Americans: Four CIA Spies at the Dawn of the Cold War—A Tragedy in Three Acts by Scott Anderson

About the Book: Scott Anderson’s 2020 release tells the stories of four men who joined up to represent America in the waning days of World War II but found a world that had dramatically cahnged by the mid-1950s: the Soviet Union had a stranglehold on Eastern Europe, the U.S. had begun its disastrous intervention in Vietnam, and America, the beacon of democracy, was overthrowing democratically-elected governments and earning the hatred of much of the world.

Related Works: Obviously, options were limited for this one. I almost read Anne Rice’s Queen of the Damned for this one, but eventually decided I didn’t want to commit to three Vampire Chronicles books this year.

I couldn’t find a Bookshop link for The Quiet Americans, so here’s one from the publisher: Penguin Random House

33. A book featuring three generations.

The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett

About the Book: Brit Bennett’s winner for the 2020 Goodreads Choice Award for Historical Fiction tells the story of the Vignes twins, who come from a small town of (proudly) light-skinned Black folks in Louisiana. Desiree Vignes has just returned to this town with her very dark-skinned child. Her twin sister, Stella, though, has been making and building her life in Los Angeles, California — as a white woman. What will bring these women back together again, if anything at all can accomplish that?

Related Works: Both alternatives for the Magical Realism prompt, One Hundred Years of Solitude and The House of the Spirits work for this prompt.

Book Cover for Dawn by Octavia Butler

Dawn by Octavia Butler

About the Book: This is the first book in Octavia Butler’s Xenogensis series. This story follows Lilith Iyapo as she is awoken from a hundreds-years-long sleep by an alien species that saved humanity from extinction. This species hopes to recolonize earth by “merging” with humans in order to repopulate the planet for the first time since a nuclear holocaust nearly destroyed it in the first place.

44. The book on your TBR list with the ugliest cover.

Book Cover for The CAves of Steel by Isaac Asimov

The Caves of Steel by Isaac Asimov

About the Book: So, maybe it’s not ugly exactly, but you can’t tell me this cover isn’t hella dated. Which is understandable, given this first book in Asimov’s Robot Series was originally published in 1953, but justification doesn’t make it not dated. Anyway, this is essentially a murder mystery set in space with robots where the detective hates robots and is partnered up with one — who looks just like the guy whose murder he’s trying to solve!

Related Works: I almost read Ovid’s Metamorphoses for this prompt (the Penguin Classics edition cover gives me the heebie jeebies), but after The Iliad and The Odyssey, I found I needed a break from mythology-inspired ancient poetry.

48. A book from your TBR list chosen at random.

The Library at Mount Char by Scott Hawkins

About the Book: Scott Hawkins’s debut novel is a book that defies categorization. It is part Mystery/Thriller because the main plot follows a group of adopted siblings attempting to locate their lost father. It’s part Fantasy because the aforementioned father is a sixty-thousand-year-old potential deity. And it’s part Horror because the magical rituals the siblings have to endure on the journey to resurrecting their sixty-thousand-year-old deity father involve some truly fucked up shit.

Related Works: I love it when POPSUGAR gives us freebie prompts like this. This would be a great one to slot in a book for a series you’re trying to finish this year!

Book Cover for The Year of the Witching by Alexis Henderson

The Year of the Witching by Alexis Henderson

About the Book: I have had The Year of the Witching on my Kindle for so long that I don’t even remember buying it, so it’s kind of like I got it for free… right? Anyway, Alexis Henderson’s debut is an alternate-historical-fiction coming-of-age story that follows Immanuelle as she comes to terms with the fact that she may have inherited witch magic from her long-dead mother, and just what that means for her incredibly religious town.

Related Works: I almost chose The Silent Patient for this prompt (which I was gifted), but ended up choosing it for Prompt #38.
