The Book Riot 2015 Read Harder Challenge!


Oh dear! It is August and I have decided to start a book challenge. Now I must admit that I didn’t know about book challenges until recently. I guess that’s my own fault for either living under a rock OR not having the common sense to assume they exist since there is now a challenge for everything… even eating cinnamon. P. S. I don’t recommend that one.

So I’ve decided to do The Book Riot 2015 Read Harder Challenge. I read through it and thought it sounded super cool and to be honest I’ve done quite a bit of what’s on it already. So I guess I have been unconsciously doing a book challenge all year… good job me!!! If you guys want to check it out and see if you’re up for it just click here.

Maybe my list will also give you guys some inspiration about what you could read because if you’re anything like me I am ALWAYS looking for recommendations! I will be posting my progress to my book challenge page so everyone can see either my victory or my potential failure! I will also be posting my thoughts on each book as I read them so that people know what is worth reading 🙂

Ok, here we go!!

    1. Hi Sophie, I just went to Amazon and checked it out. It sounds interesting so absolutely I will give it a read. Congratulations by the way on releasing your novel, that’s amazing. I am in the middle of another novel so once I am done with that one I will start yours. Is there a physical book that can be purchased? I would much rather read a physical book than on kindle.

      1. Hi Sammie- thank you so much for doing that.
        It hasn’t been professionally edited, but it has a decent storyline. Unfortunately, it’s not a physical copy. Maybe one day!
