Welcome :)
You can use the books you read so far this year to check some categories if they fit.

Thanks! And good idea, I just might do that. :)

I've reached my goal, which was 10 books, for this challenge. I started late (in august) and didn't know how much time I could spend reading, but it turns out that I actually manage to read about 1 book a week. I'm not going to change my goal now, but I will continue reading. And planning for next years challenge! :)

Marta (gezemice) Congrats, Charlotte! I am a late comer, too, I fit my other books into the challenge and trying to finish.

I like your picks, I read several this year myself or planning to read them. Good luck with next year's challenge!
