Me, Myself and my fantasy challenge!

Hi people! Today I’m really excited to be here because today I would present you my personal reading challenge for this year (and this would be the biggest challenge I’ve ever tried… and I am really curious to see if I can manage it and be constant with my reading! It’s a way to challenge myself and to try and finish or continue some good series!).

I found a wonderful list on Booknest with a lot of fantasy books. It was a list for their 2017 award and was so rich of interesting titles that I couldn’t resist. Most of them were on my wishlist and some of them were unknown to me, so I had to check them out, but in the end, I am willing to try and read them. It would take me some years, that’s for sure, but I love fantasy and I really, really, really couldn’t resist. Mind you, the list you’ll find here it’s not their original list (you can find it here), it’s a little bit adapted: I removed a couple of titles because I’ve read them in 2017 and a couple because I wasn’t interested in them. And they nominated a lot of series that I have to start or that I’ve started but I am way behind with them. So when they put in a book part of a series I just put the first book of it (or the book that I have yet to read). And at the end of this list I made some addition, with series that I’ve started and I want to finish. These additions are about series or author that I loved a lot and that I simply couldn’t leave out of this!

Wish me good luck! And if there are some titles in this list that you loved, well recomends them to me!
Happy reading!
