So with the decent success of last year, I again signed up for too many reading challenges. I could blame A Novel Challenge for the bountiful selection, but when you get right down too it, I only have myself to blame. In all aspects of my life, this year I want to tie up loose ends. I’m all about finishing the old before moving onto the new this year. In my knitting, finishing up projects that I have started and in my reading goals to take a huge chunk out of my TBR list and books I all ready own. So my reading challenges this year, reflect that mindset. Here we go!
