My Reading Challenges

My 2017 Reading Challenges

I enjoy Lori’s other reading challenge, Alphabet Soup. Been doing it for a couple of years now and plan to do it again next year.

While on her blog, Escape With Dollycas, I came across this fun challenge too. I’m a cozy mystery addict and this looks like a perfect fit for me.

I’m shooting for Famished: 11 to 20 books.

Being such a fan of cozies, I’m sure I can meet this goal.
