2015 Reading Challenge Wrap Up!


Can you believe that it is almost 2016?! It seems like only yesterday that I was posting about the reading challengem then a week later posting my 1st challenge review on The Darkest Hour by Tony Schumacher! It has been a fantastic year for books and I cannot wait for the b0oks coming out in 2016! As you know last year I posted about a reading challenge that I was going to take on for the year. Since this was my first one, I was a little skeptical that I would be able to read all the books in the challenge, but I gave it a try anyways. The end result was: 30 books out of 50 topics!  I think I did a damn fine job for my first year! Below is a link to my original post about the challenge if you are looking for a little nostalgia:
