Goodreads Challenge – 2016

So, my first Goodreads reading challenge was in 2015 and I had a low target of 24 books for the year – I completed that challenge and was determined to set my target higher…so why not double it? Yep, that’s right, my goal this year was 48 books…and I’ve now completed it!

Did you reach your 2016 reading goal? Were any from my list?
