2017 Reading Challenge

I have always wanted to attempt a Popsugar Ultimate Reading Challenge. This year I have come across the list early enough in the year that I might have a chance at completing it.
I’ve also joined the Goodreads group for the challenge, which is a great place to get inspiration or ideas for some of the more unusual items.
I’m hoping this will introduce me to new genres & authors. I have no shame admitting I will cheat, because some books may fit multiple items but I endeavour to get to the duplicates at some stage.
