📚 2019 Reading Challenges ~ What am I reading in 2019?

Hello fellow book lovers!

It is that time again! Reading challenge time. :) I did pretty well on my 2018 reading challenges, so I am giving it a go again. I am only participating in two challenges, as I think the key to my own success is not being overwhelmed. Check out the challenges I am doing for 2019 (and the books I am going to tackle!) below & make sure to link me up with your own challenge post if you're doing one! ^_^
