2016 Women's Fiction Reading Challenge


***Challenge compete. See my wrap-up post.***

Dates: January 1 - December 31, 2016

✸ See the challenge announcement post for a discussion of just what is meant by "women's fiction."

Choose a Level:
  1. Motivated 1- 5
  2. Savvy 6 - 10
  3. Classy 11- 20
  4. Go-getter 20 -30
  5. Fearless 30+

General Guidelines:
  1. Books may overlap with other challenges. 
  2. All formats are OK.
  3. A blog isn't necessary -- you can link up through GoodReads.
  4. There will be a link for reviews, although reviews are not a condition of completing the challenge, they are just an extra.

✸ I'll be signing up at the "Motivated" level, and hope to read five books that qualify.
