2017 Pop Sugar Reading Challenge

So I am sad to say that once again, I failed at a Pop Sugar Reading Challenge in 2016. I am now determined to complete one of these challenges sometime before I die 😛 This year I am attempting this feat again. Like I said last year, this is mostly just for fun and I enjoy trying to hunt down books that fit the challenges and picking up things I might not have read otherwise, so really these aren’t a lost cause!
