Jennifer (bookishlei) I firmly believe 2016 is going to be MY year. I made a very realistic goal to read 45 books in 2015 and will likely hit maybe 35. It was a rough year with a lot of loss and challenges. Reading just didn't fit as much into my life. So with that said, I'm looking forward to the new year and the new challenge!

Kadijah Michelle (kadmich) | 2176 comments I hope you have a better year in 2016, and enjoy all the new books you will get to read!

Jennifer (bookishlei) My first book on the challenge was Harper Lee's Go Set a Watchman. I had the audio book from the library and finished it in two days attempting to clean up from the New Year's Eve gathering I had at my house. My review was 2/5 as I just didn't care for the book.
