The 2018 Reading Challenge at Island Reader

I will be doing the Island Reader's Challenge again. 

New year, new reading challenge!
I had so much fun working my way through last year’s challenge that I thought it would only be right to create a new one for 2018.
Yes, it’s November, but I’m trying to be fully prepared for 2018 so my list is ready for consumption.
Like before, we are going to focus more on quality than quantity. There are 14 books on this year’s list and it’s broken up into two main parts again; romance and ‘other’. ‘Other’ as you well know is where I put everything that isn’t romance related on this site, biographies, essays etc. #dontjudgeme
I would love it if you all would join me once again. To participate, simply click HERE to download and print a copy of the challenge.
Make sure you’re signed up for my mailing list. The first person to finish and can show me a copy of the completed challenge will win a $25 Amazon gift card. 🙂
