Reading Challenge 2018

The Reading Challenge

I love reading and if I was able to do, I would read all day! However, sadly for me, that is not the case but I decided last December after failing my reading challenge by 1 book, that I was going to read more this year (especially to get through all the books that I have bought and haven’t read yet). I will update this page after every book that I finish (with a book review), so all the books that I have read up until the end of 2018 will be on this page.
