2015 Reading Challenge

For 2015, B & C have decided to partake in a Reading Challenge. We wanted to expand our horizons, venture out of our comfort zones, and finally delve into some of those books we clicked in 2014 but neglected. For each completed challenge item, we’ll be tagging the reviews as part of this adventure. However, we’ll also list the books here as easy access for our readers. If you’re interesting in doing the challenge with us, we’d love to know your selections as well!
