Wow, so many great books I just couldn't help myself. I'd like to thank Kristi from The Story Siren and Hafsah from IceyBooks & Britta from I Like These Books for hosting these challenges and making the goals small so I could join because, let's face, I can hardly read a book in a week lately (thanks to school.....but, that's okay). I can't wait to dive into the fun, so cheers, to a good reading year.  

Also, I'd like to thank them for showing me these books, because truthfully I probably wouldn't have looked twice at some of them. So thank you again, Kristi & Hafsah & Britta.
