This year, I'm making a stand. I will finish at least 60 books this year, if not more! To help me, I've decided to create the 60 Books YA Challenge for 2016; a list of different categories for which I have to read at least one fitting book throughout the year. In the next 362 days I am determined to complete this list, and I'd love it if some of you would join me.
Below you'll find the 60 different categories for which I will post my planned reading in the next day or so. Please do let me know in the comments below, or on Twitter, if you're taking part as I'd love to see what you decide to read.
