2016 Reading Challenge

For the first time in over 3 years, I have time and energy to read novels like I used to. Inspired by Modern Mrs. Darcy’s reading challenge, I’ve assembled my list. Here’s to being (overly) ambitious! And hopefully, reading some good literature this year. Now, I have to decide which one to do first. What’s on your reading list this year?

  • A book published this year: What is Not Yours is Not Yours by Helen Oyeyemi
