2015 Reading Challenge


Last week I bumped into the 2015 Reading Challenge and I was drawn in immediately.  I've been reading a lot lately (and listening to lots of books during my huge amount of time in the car), but I'm often struggling a bit to find the next book I want to read.  So, I thought I would take on the challenge and hopefully it will help me break out a little bit and read some new things.  I'm hoping the Challenge will actually challenge me a bit in my reading.

I have no idea if I will actually finish the challenge this year, but if I were to have a chance I needed to go back and retroactively put some of my 2015 reads into the categories I could (you can download the list of categories here).

#1 - A funny book
The Rosie Project

#2 - A book by a female author
My Beloved World

#3 - A book with a one-word title
Nest

#4 - A memoir
There Was A Little Girl

#5 - A book you can finish in a day
About Alice

#6 - A book with a color in the title
Brown Girl Dreaming

#7 - A book by an author you've never read before
Pale Girl Speaks

Back to present time, I will finish the book above today.  My to-read list is not ordered in any way, but this one had been on it for some time, so I think it counts.

#8 - A book at the bottom of your reading list
The Mothers

I'm excited to take on the challenge...although a couple categories scare me (a lot).  I'm sure I'll be asking for recommendations as the year goes on.  The ones I'm most concerned about are the classic romance and the trilogy.  Neither are my thing, but I guess the comfort zone will be tested.
