2016 Reading Challenge

Every year I keep track of all the books I read, but this is my first time going public. I’m also happy to find the majority of the authors here are women.

My goal for this year is to read the twenty books listed below, in no particular order. I may add or remove a few over the course of the year; life’s too short to finish a terrible book.
