My 2016 TBR List

Its 2016... It's actually the third day of 2016 so I'm a little late but i told my parents I don't feel like it's a new year until the first day of school. My life pretty much revolves around school. Everything is built around it. 

So many things are going to change this year. I'll hit my sweet sixteen in April. I'll (hopefully) learn to drive. I'll be half way through high school this summer. Movies will come out, books will be released, bands will bring out new songs and albums, and maybe Starbucks will invent a new coffee. Who knows? There is so much that could happen this year and it makes me giddy thinking about it.

So you get the picture. A lot is happening this year but I've come up with my TBR for the year. And like the amazing bookworm I am I will put all my effort into completing this book list. Yeah that was sarcasm. I'm going to share it here with you guys to try and help keep myself accountable.

Before I share this with you guys I just want you to know that my Goodreads challenge is seventy five books. I read a hundred and fifty last year but school is going to keep me so busy that I cut it in half. *cries*
