2017 Reading Challenges Pt. 2

I am excited to once again be participating in the 2017 Gentle Spectrums Challenge hosted over at Riedel Fascination. There are two parts to this challenge that are independent of each other. You can choose to participate in both or just one of them. I think the topics are really great and I love that you don’t just need to read one in all the topics you can read as many books as you like within each topic. There are a few other challenges as well, so if you are interested visit Riedel Fascination above!
