My Goodreads Challenge #1

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.” 

― George R.R. Martin, A Dance with Dragons


Good Morning Book-Gods! Smile and be happy and let that happiness spread everywhere you go. Life is a beautiful thing and you only have it once! This morning, one of the first things I did after taking my morning whiz (probably not something that everyone needed to know…) was pick up and finish readingA Map for Wrecked Girls by Jessica  Taylor.  I then rated and reviewed it on Goodreads and continued on to some group updates. Lately, I’ve been joining more and more groups on Goodreads because I love the satisfaction of having so many book-lovers surround me. It’s at an unhealthy level now… Through this, I found a yearly reading challenge by Addicted to Ya and proceeded to fill out the template as a plan of books I will read for each prompt. Now, if any of you have been with me since the bumpy begging of this blogging journey, you would know that my challenges, plans, and schedules, don’t always work as I imagine, BUT I am full of hope that I can make 2018 the year where that changes.

That aside, for the actual challenge. Here are the books I plan to read. Some are left blank as I will add them after I read a book that follows the guidelines, or if I find one in my TBR later in life. This list will be updated on this post and eventually, every book will be crossed out.  Also to clarify, the title is labeled “My Goodreads Challenge #1” just because there are about 5 other challenges I signed up or in the past few days (like I said… its gone wild.)
