The end of 2016 is finally on the horizon, and as I look back on my achievements over the past twelve months, I’m proud to say I’ve accomplished quite a lot. One of my major goals going in was to win my Goodreads Reading Challenge, a set goal of how many books I wanted to read in 2016. I may not have set the bar particularly high for my first try, but I’m still happy to have reached it!

So after two January posts on the ten books I wanted to read this year and a midyear progress report in July, here is my final report on my reading challenge goals for 2016. Enjoy!
