2016 Book Challenge Update!

Hi nerds!

Ok, so October is almost to it’s end, which is not only terrifying, but it has also caused me to look over my book challenge for the year and see if it’s actually going to be possible to finish or if I should just give up and cry.

Well, good news, I think I’m going to make it! Yay!

I’m doing the Popsugar 2016 book challenge, and it has been incredibly fun! It hasn’t only expanded my reading genre’s but it’s also gotten me through book slumps because I know if I want to win I have to keep going.

So far this year I’ve read 33 books, and the challenge has 41 books on it (I know this is nothing compared to some of you great readers out there!) however, not all the books I’ve read apply to the challenge, so I think I still have 12 categories left.

Anywhere, here are my reads so far and the categories I still have to finish (Bold= not read yet, Highlighted= Click to read review):
