Reading Challenge #1: Fully Loaded - September 2015

Reading Challenge: Fully Loaded - September 2015

Hosted by: Crazy for Young Adult Books on www.goodreads.com

For my first reading challenge, I found Fully Loaded: September 2015. Each day has an assigned "task" that you need to fulfill. For instance, if you're starting a book on September 6th, it says: "Scaredy Cat: Read a horror book." Obviously you don't have to read 30 books in 30 days, but I tried to find a book for each day just for fun! It makes you think outside the box, and maybe read something you wouldn't normally! I personally get bonus points if I read a book I ALREADY OWN. (The points system is entirely inside my head. I get triple-double bonus points if I match my other book club up with these days in September.)

So here's my list! Go to the Crazy for Young Adult Books Group on www.goodreads.com to join the challenge! Wish me luck!
