2017 Reading Challenge

In 2017, we’ll be doing another Reading Challenge in hopes of once again expanding our horizons, venturing out of our comfort zones, and delving into some of those books we’ve clicked 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 interested in doing the challenge with us, we’d love to know your selections as well!
