  1. great list!
    im hopefully going to finish john green’s books(Let It Snow, Paper Towns & half of Abundance Of Katherines are left)
    Also planning on reading the Divergent trilogy and finish A Song Of Ice And Fire.

  2. I loved Me Before You and The Rosie Project (this one really made me laugh). As for challenges in 2014 I aim to read many of the books I have and haven’t got around to reading yet including A Very British Murder (Xmas pressie) and The Flavours of Love by Dorothy Koomson which I am really looking forward to. Hope your challenge goes well.
