2015 Reading Challenge, Are you game?

Love book

Happy New Year! I, for one, am very excited for 2015 and all that is to come for this year. I am hoping and praying that this year brings you joy, prosperity, growth, and lots of great books! I stumbled upon this little (yeah right) 2015 Reading Challenge on Pinterest, and it got me thinking, could I complete a challenge this year? I do read a lot of books throughout the year but have never considered doing a challenge, and this is the first one I actually like. This list not only looks promising from this wide variety of books and topics, but one that can be managed if you are wise about it. It covers a multitude of topics from nonfiction, mystery, classics, older books and this is the first reading challenge that has not only intrigued me, but also revived a thrill of reading within me. It does look a little daunting, judging by its length, but it wouldn’t be called a challenge if it wasn’t going to stretch you as a reader. I am looking forward to stretching myself as not only a blogger but also as a reader in 2015, and this challenge can be a good guide for doing that. So here is the list below, have a look:

I also know some books that can tick the box for multiple categories, so it shouldn’t make the list seem so vast and lengthy. Who’s with me?! Who wants to see how much we can uncover in 2015 and go where we haven’t been before?? I’m in! Are you? There are so many books out there to read and explore! Let’s be reading adventures who are willing to dive into books they would have never dreamed of picking up and allow our imaginations to read wild.
