Amy Tinson (amytinson1) | 98 comments As I enjoyed last year's reading challenges so much and found I read more, I've decided to give them another go in 2016!

I managed to reach and surpass my goal of 30 books in one year but unfortunately, didn't manage to complete the A-Z Challenge (needed only 2 letters!).

This year, I'm going to push myself harder in the personal challenge with a set goal of 50 books in 2016. I'm also going to participate in the A-Z Challenge: Character Edition and the I-Spy: Book Titles Edition.
