EDIT 13 SEPT 2017: I’ve altered my goal to 75 to help push me further, as I reached my goal of 50 a few weeks ago.
EDIT 21 SEPT 2017: Somehow I’ve read a book a day for at least 10 days and I reached 75 way too quickly. Time to test 100.
EDIT 22 OCT 2017: Finished 100. Time to bump it up a notch

AUGUST – Seasons, Elements, & Weather
Read a book in which the season, the elements, or the weather plays a role in the story.

Cozy mystery ghost stories, paranormal hauntings, murder mysteries, weird and scary creatures- it’s up to you!
- The Hearts We Sold by Emily Lloyd-Jones
OCTOBER– Games, Challenges, & Contests
Read a book that involves a game of some sort. Video games, war games, psychological mess-with-your-mind games, characters who participate in a contest, or a story in which the character takes on a challenge.

Read a book you’ve been meaning to get to all year but haven’t yet or read the last book in a series you started.
