Pop Sugar Challenge - My Progress - Over Half Way There!

This really is an awesome challenge.  I love how my reading is more focused and I am reading a wider breadth of books.  I've read some awesome works that either would still be on my TBR pile or I would never have picked up at all.  I'm definitely reading or will read a wider variety of authors and that makes me really happy.  At the beginning of the year, I mapped out a plan for this challenge.  Some categories have worked out the way that I expected, while others went in a different direction and that's ok.  I'm excited to see what the second half of this challenge will bring.  Here are the list of books I've completed, or those I am still working on ( in bold). 

  1. A book with over 500 pages - Black Halo by S. L. Naeole
