My Reading Challenge 2018


The last few years I've followed the Modern Mrs Darcy reading challenge (you can read about how I got started in my "reading challenge newbie" post).

This year, I've also been introduced to the Book Riot Read Harder Challenge. I fancy a bit of both so have picked a few from each list plus added some of my own to create my reading challenge for 2018!

Oh and if you have any recommendations or other reading challenges or prompts, I'd love to read your suggestions in the comments below.

Happy reading, folks!

Love, Barnet x  

Ps you can check out last year's reading list and reviews here.
