2016 Reading Challenge

bluebookwithredbookmark-200Just for fun, I’m taking part in the Popsugar 2016 Reading Challenge. Below are the topics and I’ll update the book I read for each one as I read it.

If any categories are in colour, it means I’ve initially marked it in a different colour so I can easily find them to allocate them to one category as the year goes on. I have included links to either purchase the books or to my Good Reads reviews.
