2015 Reading Challenge

I had more than enough books on my to-read-list, but for some reason I still did this book challenge. I did not actually finish it and I read some books that I put in >1 category, but I think it’s close enough, since I did reach my goal of 50 books (actually read 51)! I read 16 books in 2014, so I obviously read a lot more books this year 🙂
