2015 Reading List

On December 29, 2014, I sat on my beach house couch, and Pinned my heart out.  In doing so, I came across a Popsugar reading challenge for 2015.  Fifty books covering a variety of serious and not-so-serious categories.  Each time I finished a book, I opened up this here post and assigned it one slot.  Considering I kicked the year off with a Required Reading series, I figured the timing was perfect to check in halfway through the year with what I’ve read.

Here’s my update:

  1. A book with more than 500 pages
  2. A classic romance
  3. A book that became a movie
