2016 Reading Challenge (5/40)

I found a reading challenge on Pinterest (love!) that I think will be a good one to attempt this year. I’ve already finished several books, so hopefully I stop spending so much time playing video games and watching TV shows and more time reading and completing this (insanely long) challenge! I failed miserably last year completing the challenge variety, so hopefully this time I will branch out!
