Reading Challenges for 2018


As 2018 approaches, I am going to try challenging myself to read and comment more often. This idea came from the lovely NovelKnight, who tweeted about 2018 challenges they will be participating in. SO. Being the entirely original peeps that I am, I am following suit. Let’s go!

4. The Siren by Kiera Cass
5. The Diviners by Libba Bray
6. Fairyland series by Cathrynne M. Valente (at least read the first one)
7. Gail Carriger’s Parasol Protectorate series (at least read Soulless)
