A Happy New Year to everyone!! So I’m officially off to a new start and what better way to start a new year with a new reading challenge??

I'm currently pursuing a Bachelor's Degree in Animal Science. I am a great lover of books from all sorts of genres (except horror because I've never actually read one due to my overactive imagination). My other passion is animals and I aspire to be a veterinarian one day.

    Hi there!
    So glad I found your blog (thanks Goodreads!) 🙂
    I’m participating in the Popsugar Reading Challenge as well, and I was wondering if you had some books you’d recommend (still trying to decide what to read).
    Also, I’d very much appreciate if you could take a look at my blog, I just started it recently and I’m more than open to suggestions!
    Hoper you’re having a lovely weekend,

      It’s great that you’re taking part in the Reading Challenge too! I’d recommend Entwined by Heather Dixon. It’s based on the fairy tale “The 12 Dancing Princesses” by the Grimm Brothers.
      I’m planning to reread Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe as the book I haven’t read since high school.
      I also recommend reading The Sandman by Neil Gaiman which is a graphic novel. I love his works very much although I have not been able to get my hands on a copy of The Sandman.
      Thank you so much for stopping by to comment on my post and to visit my blog! I’ll be sure to return the gesture! I’ve just started this blog too so I’m still relatively new to the blogging business.
      Happy reading!

        Thank you so much for the suggestions, I am definitely reading The Sandman: I haven’t read any graphic novels in my whole life and it’s high time I start!
        I intend to read Robinson Crusoe as well sooner or later; I read it once in high school, but didn’t really enjoy it much (the teacher wasn’t that great and made us hate almost anything), but I feel the need to give it another shot!
        I’ll make sure to check out Entwined as well, I’ve heard people talking about it but haven’t really been interested in the topic until the moment I read the 2016 challenge. 😉
        Thanks again, have a lovely day!
