2016 Reading List

    At the beginning of the year I started making the below reading list for 2016 for myself and I have added to it over the past couple of months. I have a thing for lists if you haven't already noticed. I was hoping to read most of these books by January and have already read a few (highlighted in red).

    YA and Adult Romance are my favorite types of reads so of course a few made the list, but I'm trying to force myself out of my comfort zone and read something different. If you follow my blog, you have heard about my attempt to read through the classics, and that struggle is a part of this bigger picture of me forcing myself out of my comfy little book world. Also, many of these books have been sitting on my shelf collecting dust, so I figure it's time to finally blow the dust off and crack them open.

    So here it is. My 2016 Reading List: 
    1. Harry Potter
    2. Harry Potter
    3. Harry Potter
    4. Harry Potter
    5. Harry Potter
    6. Harry Potter
    7. Harry Potter (Is there a reason lists always make this series one slot? There are a lot of books and they are not short! I think they each deserve a spot on a list! I should look up all the actual names but then I'll put it off and never post this like I've already done...)
    8. Catcher in the Rye 
    9. Jane Eyre
