My 2016 Reading Challenge

If I`ll start this post with a phrase like When I was young you`ll probably snort and think I`m being dramatic, but truth is, a lot has changed these past years. Ever since I started working full time I barely have time for myself and even when I`m home, I`m too exhausted to do anything. When I was still in school I used to read 5-6 books per month, but now I can barely read 3. So I thought that a reading challenge might motivate me and after looking at various posts on this topic, I made my own list. I want to read 50 books this year, from different authors and on various themes, books that will make me a better and wiser person.
