2015 reading challenge

If you weren't already aware, I study languages at university, including English Literature. I'm constantly having to read books, articles and poems for class that by the time summer roles around, I don't want to read another page of anything ever again. It didn't take long before pleasure reading didn't appeal to me anymore - which I'm trying to change!

My friend introduced me to the Popsugar 2015 Reading Challenge and I'm totally up for, well, the challenge! I definitely think I can successfully read all of the following by the end of the year! Here's the list of books to read from the Popsugar site:
