Last year I participated in the Goodreads reading challenge; my goal was 15 books, and I ended up reading 25. This year I am doing that again, but challenging myself to read 45 books. I also decided to take it a step further & participate in the 12 books recommended by 12 friends challenge and choose my own books based off of the challenge I wrote below. Feel free to follow along on my Goodreads page and our Instagram to join in the challenge with me!

You can find all sorts of resources on banned books by doing a simple web search but this particular website showed me a lot of books that peaked my interest!
