2018 Ultimate Reading Challenge

This year, I plan to finish a reading challenge. 2017 wasn't a great year for my reading, so a plan with a bit more structure should help. I'm also hoping it pushes me to try new genres and different authors, as I want to expand my horizons. As I go through my year, I'll add the titles I read, just to keep track of how many I managed to tick off. The aim is to tick off all 49, but let's see.
