2017 Reading Challenges I’m Participating In

The only reading challenge I’ve ever participated is the Goodreads Reading Challenge. I decided I want to branch out in 2017 and try some other challenges — there are so many great ones out there! It was hard, but I narrowed down my options to four challenges that interest me the most. This post will be updated throughout 2017 as I complete the challenges:
