The Goodreads Winter Challenge (Part 3)

I’m back with the third instalment of my reading list for the Goodreads Winter Reading Challenge, and today it’s all about the 15 pointers.

15 points is usually the place where things start to get complicated. There are some tasks with multiple options, and some with multiple reads (from multiple options) – but that’s why I love this challenge. It’s basically a treasure hunt.

15.1 – Read two books, one book 1 and one book 2 –

Book 1 – Read a book with a word in the title or subtitle from this list: me, myself, I, my, mine.

Talking as Fast as I Can by Lauren Graham

Yes Please by Amy Poelher
