Books to read in 2015 (with lots of room for adding in more)

15 books I want to read in 2015 I don't really like to try my hand at predicting how things will turn out. I prefer, rather, to leave lots of wiggle room and see how things play out on their own. Examples: hearts, rather than spades, homeschool planning, and well, reading lists.

The minute I saw Anne's 2015 Reading Challenge, I knew it was the perfect list for me. I don't like to be too pinned down to a reading list because I never know what books are going to show up on the "hot now" or the holds shelf for me at the library, and I often add random books to my Kindle simply because they are on sale or free.

The great thing about this challenge is that it's not a specific list of books to read, but rather (fun) categories. I've chosen books that can fit in this list that I already have been wanting to read, with lots of room for spontaneous reads.

Have you taken on Anne's challenge? Here's some of what I'm planning to read this year.
