This year I want to challenge myself somewhat to read outside my usual boundaries, to tackle some topics that are uncomfortable for me and to encounter diverse characters and cultures. So without any particular rules in mind, I selected various books from my TBR that I’d like to make a priority in 2016. I made this list some time ago and have actually already read two of the books on it, both of which I loved — so the effort so far is definitely worth it.
Have you read any of these? What did you think?
