Book Riot's: Read Harder Challenge

There are 24 tasks in the Read Harder Challenge (or roughly two per month). You can tackle them in any order, make any changes, do them all in a month or spread them out over the year. Make the challenge yours!

Here is my list, and I will update it a bit as the year goes on. If you have any suggestions for the items are missing, please, don't hesitate to leave a comment or even to just say hi! (All links from Goodreads for now, if I write a review I will change them)
