Calling All Book Lovers....

The 2016 Popsugar Reading Challenge is well under way over here & so far, I've truly enjoyed almost everything I've read! (Catch up here) I'm 13 books in...only 5 behind schedule!  However, this year I've found finding books to fit the categories to be a bit more challenging than last years.
