Hey guys,

As part of my 101 goals in 1001 days I have to complete a reading challenge. Having never done a reading challenge before I was unaware of what to expect… I searched high and low for a reading challenge that I could work with until I found one by pop sugar. The categories in this challenge would be easy to change to the books I had available in my house. (I think I have to many). Anyway I decided to do this challenge and have a list of all the books I plan on reading or have read.


Here is the list of books on my reading challenge this year. I hope to achieve it as I feel it would be a great way to end a year. 🙂🙂
