60 Books Challenge

Reading Challenges are in! And I had planned to complete both Book Riot’s Read Harder Challenge, as well as Popsugar’s Reading Challenge 2015.

However, looking at the lists, I realised some of the suggestions are the same. So I took some off.

I altered the list a bit to come up with 60 suggestions in total, and added a few of my own I thought would be interesting, like “A book by an author with your first name” and “A book your mum/dad/grandparents love” among others. (Follow the links to the original Read Harder and Popsugar challenges.)

So, without further ado, I present: My 60 Books Challenge!!
