2016 Reading Challenge

Posted by Caitie F on December 21, 2015

So last year I did this challenge through an official challenge and failed at it in the fall. But I wanted to set the goal again to read 48 specific books, and try to balance it to four a month. This is just my own personal challenge.

My only rule I am making for myself is that it cannot be a 2016 book. These have to be books that were published in 2015 or earlier.

Most of these are books I really want to read this year. The bottom 15 were picked at random from my spreadsheet of books I want to read.

1. Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff (finished 4/3/16) (and the rest of the series)
