I Love Libraries Reading Challenge

I Love Libraries Reading Challenge 2016

January 1, 2016 – December 31, 2016 – Sign up here.

I participate in this challenge every year but in 2015 I completely failed. I didn’t get the chance to go to the library. Since I have anxiety I can’t go to the library alone. What if they talk to me? I have Selective Mutism so this is a problem that makes things super awkward, which of course, makes me super anxious. This is why my mom always takes me. Unfortunately my mom just didn’t have time but 2016 will be different. She will have more time. YAY! 🙂

I’m going for chapter book – 12

  1. Crank (Crank #1) by Ellen Hopkins
  2. Putting Makeup on the Fat Boy by Bil Wright
  3. Confess by Colleen Hoover
