10 Books in 2016: Challenge Accepted

Posted on Updated on

I have decided to challenge myself to join Jade Herriman’s 10 books in 2016 challenge:

10 Books in 2016 Challenge

I just finished a book that was a bit of a challenge recently, and took me far longer than normal to finish (don’t worry – you’ll hear all about that book later… it will be in the ranting blog post about glass books #foreshadowing). So joining this challenge will be a good way to keep me motivated to keep reading, instead of slacking because the last book I read was somewhat tortuous.

Shuster_Nights_of_Horror-8
& not, like, the FUN kind of torture…

So… what 10 books do I plan to finish before 2016 is finished?

      Thanks for the invite, Jade! I actually don’t have a Facebook (it just… doesn’t quite work for me), but I hope that everyone did well on the challenge, and enjoyed what they read!
