Kadijah Michelle (kadmich) | 2176 comments BOOKS YOU MIGHT HAVE MISSED LAST YEAR
Duration: January 1 - March 31, 2016


First and foremost, congratulations to everyone for participating in the Goodreads Reading Challenge! Whether you completed your challenge for 2016 or didn't quite make it, as any lover of books, we are sure most of you have a pile of TBR books you would have loved to have squeezed in.

For this 2017 1st Quarter Challenge, we are offering you a chance to catch up on some of those books. Did you not quite finish the PopSugar Challenge? Did you want to read a few more books for the Listopia Challenge? How about the Every Year Challenge? Were you able to read that book that was written when you were 5? Here is a way to start this year's challenge while finishing up some of last year's.

Just choose the number of books you would have liked to have read (that will be the number of books for this challenge), and take advantage of this time to catch up!

Lisa GP will be the leader of this challenge.
