2015 Reading Challenge

ReadingChallengeThis year, as part of my Goodreads reading challenge of 75 books, I’m going to spice things up a bit with the book challenge that’s been going around. It came from Popsugar and is a list of 50 types of books to read through the year. I’m going to post mine here to share with you.

And here’s my Goodreads challenge link.

Are you doing any sort of challenge this year?
