2017 Reading Challenge

After looking around the web, I have found the reading challenge I will be focusing on … If you want to join, here’s the website for all the details: Modern Mrs. Darcy 2017 reading challenge.

Below you will see both challenges on her website. I decided to be ambitious and tackle both. Below each photo I will update with what books fit each bullet point and a link to my blog post that shares my thoughts/review of the book. If there is no link, that means I’ve decided what to read but haven’t read it yet, or I don’t know what to read for that category as of yet.

If you have suggestions, let me know.
