Book Challenge 2016

My book club has gone away. I found a reading challenge to motivate me this year. This one was from POPSUGAR. There are 40 books to read before December 31, 2016. And I am currently at the end of March. So I need to get on this lickety split. After I have completed a book, I will add the title and author to the list. Join along if you are feeling like you need a challenge too.
