Today I want to talk about ‘Tackle Your Library Challenge 2017’. This challenge is created by Ashley who is one of my favorite bookstagrammers and now a blogger too and her friend Lauren. The concept is to try to finish a bunch of books that have been sitting on your shelf since the dawn of time and you have been pushing them further in the back because Immediate TBR is extremely out of hand.
I got super excited when I read about this challenge on their blog. Just like most of you guys, I am someone who loves to buy new books and then forget they exist. People who buy books and read them immediately or eventually, I envy you lot. I have a memory of a goldfish and the will power of a 20 something so for me to commit to one thing is super impossible. That is why I want to give this challenge a go and hopefully by the end of this year I would be done by at least a few of my books.
If the above description of myself sound like I am talking about you then I will highly suggest you to take up this challenge. Also, go follow Ashley and Lauren and show them some love.

I don’t know Lauren but I do know Ashley and she is such an amazing person and absolutely lovely to talk to. They co-own the blog and write super fun posts, challenges, and are such relatable people. Definitely check them out for all the book feels.
Now on to the challenge. So you have about 15 prompts. You can pick whichever best suits you or do them all. I haven’t decided how many of these I want to do. I actually want to do them all! Being a bit ambitious here but I want to see how well I do. I might probably change the answers for a few of them because boy do I have a lot of books I get but don’t read.
