Why I’m Interested:

I have a bunch of these that I’d like to finally get through.

Some books I’m considering:

Graceling by Kristin Cashore, which I put down to read time-sensitive books and desperately want to finish.
XVI by Julia Karr, which didn’t hold my attention at the time.
Divergent by Veronica Roth, which also had to be put down in lieu of review books.
Team of Rivals by Doris Kearns Goodwin, which I put down to read fiction and never went back.

Books completed:

  1. This past year, I only had two DNF. I'm so anal about finishing books I start, even if I'm not liking them. What's wrong with me? *sighs* Good luck!

  2. Best of luck getting these read this year, Logan. :-D(Ha ha — so many people are scared of this challenge! I'm like the teacher with the ruler! ) J/K 😉
