2016 60 Books YA Reading Challenge - Final Results!

This year I managed 39/60 for the YA Challenge - not bad considering this year has been more than hectic! A few are still awaiting reviews, so apologies to anyone waiting for those; they will be posted ASAP.

I'm determined to do better in 2017 however, so I'll be reposting the challenge for myself and anyone who wishes to join in. Here's to reaching 60!

I'm also taking part in the 2017 British Books and Beat the Backlist challenges, so check those out too!
