Update: 2015 Reading Challenge

Alright, I still have a way to go with the reading challenge and it's a bit difficult to keep up with this list since most of the time I just pick a book to read and not realize whether or not it fits into this list.  By the way, I got this list from Popsugar.  

As of today, I've read 18 books.  I honestly doubt I'll read 50 books this year but I'm certainly going to aim high!  Hey, you never know!  The thing I really like about this challenge is it's getting me out of my usual genre (romance).    

I had to re-arrange some of the books on the list to fit in ones that I read because, you know me, I chose a book or two without even looking at the list so then had to go and fit them in somewhere.  From now on though, I'm sticking to the list!  I've already set my readers with the books that I intend to read but I still am missing a few to complete the list.  No worries since I really know I won't actually get through 50 books anyway!  Ha!

I'm can assume this list was meant for folks to actually read the books but most of the time I'm into audiobooks.  As far as I'm concerned, it's the same thing because I'm still getting the story in my head.
