    Hey, I'm not entirely sure how this works, since I just found the challenge. I made a list of books and all. However, I'm going to have read way more than fifteen books by the end of the year. Do only fifteen count? Or, should we link up all of the standalones we read? If the former, I'll probably remove a couple of those and I'll edit my list, because it's too long right now!

    Thanks for the clarification!

    This is my first month doing this, so I'm sorry if it seems like I spammed up your linky.
    I swear next month there will be only reviews written that month.
    Thanks again. :)

    Gah! They just released the news that Unraveling has a sequel. I wasn't sure. That one should be removed. Sigh. I mean, I'm glad to get more, but it's a pain to change it up.
