°~Amy~° (amybooksit) | 3 comments I just found out about this challenge because I have apparently been living under a rock this year. Anyway, I figured I would go though my last 12 months of reading material and see how much of this list I had covered without even trying. My personal goal was to only use each book once. I do love making things so much harder on myself than absolutely necessary. Go me :-/ I did however, sneak back into December of last year for a couple books that I needed for this list. That, I hope gives me the opportunity to MAYBE finish up this challenge by the end of this month and start the 2016 challenge ON TIME! Shocking, I know. So, read books are tallied, all the missing pieces are waiting on my various assorted reading devices (including a REAL paper book in the mix GASP!), and I'm off to read my little head off for the next month.

There are plenty of good books in your list, I really enjoyed the Giver quartet and the Silo series.
Have fun finishing the challenge :)

°~Amy~° (amybooksit) | 3 comments Thank you for the welcome. I really have read a lot of books that I enjoyed this year. I just finished Postcards, the Graphic Novel for this list. The concept was interesting but I really wanted a "real" novel adaptation of it. Overall I don't see me reading graphic novels on a regular basis, ever. lol
