This has always been one of my ultimate favorite challenges. I’ve participated the past two years and haven’t officially been able to finish my original list. This year I’m a little more hopeful except my list is exceptionally long with all the challenges I hope to finish by the end of the year.

You can read all the rules and guidelines on the official challenge post. It’s pretty loose and I know that I am creating my own challenge so if I don’t finish the list I will be okay. Without further ado…

There are so many other books I would love to read and to help finish challenges out before the end of the year so this is a pretty scary list for me in addition to those, but I’m hoping with the cooling weather I will get some good long reading periods in.

Good luck to everyone!
