Caitlin Weiss (caitlin320xo) | 71 comments I've been doing my Goodreads 2020 Reading Challenge so far, and a 100 Books Bucket List challenge. I bought a poster for this and I've been slowly but surely checking books off that list. I'll keep track of both in here!

Caitlin Weiss (caitlin320xo) | 71 comments Last night I found a bunch of papers and I decided to go through them....Turns out it was a "Genre Challenge" I had written out a long time ago! I decided to re-vamp it with more current books! I might change them now and then but, for now with stick with what I have on there. It's been so long I don't even know where I got this anymore.. But if anyone else wants to make their own, go right ahead!
