Karianne (karibean13) | 17 comments I am probably being very over-ambitious in the number of challenges I'm going to put here but I do love checking things off.

Clear the Shelves Challenge

My mom and I are going to read a feminist book together every month.
And I'm going to try to participate in some buddy reads and book clubs.
