2015 Reading Challenge

This year, I'm going to take the time to read a bunch of different books and step outside my comfort zone.  I'll list the categories and when I've read a book in each category, I'll add the name underneath.
Some books will fill more than one category so the same title may come up twice (or thrice or whatever comes after thrice!)

This is going to be fun!

2. A classic romance
