Mount TBR Challenge

Last year, I participated in the Mount TBR Challenge, the goal of which is to read books you already own (and make TBR pile a little less intimidating). Since my TBR is is kind of insane, I decided to do the challenge again this year, because I really need to read some of these books! If you want to participate in the challenge, click here.

I’ll list all the books I read for this challenge below, all of which I owned before January 1, 2017.
