2017 Reading Challenge

Last year, I realised that I’ve not been reading as much as I wanted to. And it sucks. I’ve got all these great books on my shelf and in my TBR (and the list keeps on growing because I keep adding to it), but I’m not getting anything out of the way. Everything’s gathering dust…

Through this, I stumbled upon Read at Midnight (super awesome book blog, aesthetic as all get out, go check them out) and whilst browsing through their homepage,…
