2015 Reading Challenge

Happy New Year good people of the literary planet of earth! Tomorrow morning 2015 will be upon us and a new year will have begun.
Thanks to that most wonderful friend of mine; Rebeccah Giltrow (fabulous author that she is) I have recently been informed of a most wonderful challenge to test your reading mettle throughout the next year. Below is a list which as been put together by POPSUGAR (http://www.popsugar.com/) and the idea is to read a different book for each category. There are fifty categories, but technically fifty two books thanks to one being a trilogy.
Are you up for the challenge? I certainly am! I'll let you know my progress by posting the title and author of the book I read under the category I'm reading it for!

Don't forget to check out Rebeccah's YouTube Channel and subscribe to me and her alike (She deserves your love) and let me know what you're reading down in the comments section below!

Love ya xx
Happy Reading

  1. Aww thank you ^_^ Much love to you <3 xx I'm excited to read about what you're going to be reading this coming year!

  2. I've already got a few books lined up ready to go xxx just got to decide which category they should fit into :) American Psycho, Oh Dear Sylvia, and Raven's Gate, are all on the list xxx <3

    1. American Psycho can be your 'banned book'.

    2. it was going to be my book that was made into a film... I had a better one for my banned book

    3. Good thinking. But remember, when you read it, to take break every now and then to get your breath back!
