Check it out 12 out of 16 done.  Very excited by this!  On to some questions from Ellie at Musings of a Bookshop Girl:
How are you getting on? Look at me go.  I am very happy about my progress so far this year.
Have any of your not-so-familiar genres surprised you? The only genre that I really never read is mystery.  I knew that it would be a problem genre, so I picked a classic.  Can’t go wrong with Agatha Christie…
Have you had any particularly good reads along the way? I loved The Magicians!  So amazingly crazy book.  I really need to read the sequel now.  I also really loved The Ghost Map and The Lost Hero.  Very good reads…
And do you reckon you’ll hit your target by the end of the year? I am determined to finish this challenge.  Only 4 more to go.  I can do it, I can do it, I can do it.  I have options for Romance and Classics, but need to dig for Poetry and Food.
