I was a first-time participant in Carrie's reading challenge last year, and I had so much fun! If you consider accepting the challenge, and are even a LITTLE bit like me, please mentally prepare yourself. You agonize over which books to choose...you commit to your list...you put it in writing...and then you look at other readers' lists and realize how many titles you overlooked. The horror! 😱.
(I'm totally kidding. This is a fantastic way to get great recommendations from fellow readers and add titles to your wish list!)
My goal is to read one of these titles each month. With only two exceptions, I have read other books by the authors on my list, and I am extremely confident that my reading time will be well spent!
