2016 Reading Challenge Retrospective

This year, I joined the 2016 Reading Challenge by Modern Mrs. Darcy, using hashtags #MMDchallenge and #MMDreading.

What I liked about this challenge was that it was only 12 books and it made me read things outside my comfort zone. But it also reminded me how much I loved reading and I ended up reading/listening to over 100 books surpassing my 33 books Goodreads Challenge.
