2015 Reading Challenge From PopSugar

PopSugar issued the challenge for the year, and I am taking it!  Over the course of 2015, I will read at least one book for every category.  I thought about just posting the picture, but I can’t check it off or list the book one a picture, so here is a list of the types of books I will be reading.  The challenge seems to be more about reading a diverse set of books than anything else, so I going to make a rule for myself with no double dipping.  Even if a book could fit more than one category, I will only list it once.  The point to to be challenged and read more, so I feel I would be cheating myself to read fewer books. (As a note to anyone who wonders, wait, isn’t she already working on a reading challenge, yes I am still going to finish the 50 Books challenge.  This is overlap, so I may use some of the 50 books challenge books to meet these challenge needs, but only if they fit naturally on their own.  I will not work to make all of the rest of the 50 books fit on here, but I will not deny them a space if they deserve one.)
