2018 Moody Reading Challenge

Since the Dystopia and Retellings challenges I've done for the last two or three years are not being offered this year, and the ongoing Mental Illness one I've been doing for about the same time has been deleted, I decided to sign up for this one at Perspective of a Writer, so that I can choose to read these genres. I'm still waiting to see if the blog hosting the LGBT and Banned Books challenges will be offering those. If not, I'll be adding those genres to this challenge as well.
