Books to Be Read for Erin’s Book Challenge 7.0

This will be my first “official” entry into Erin’s Book Challenge 7.0.  I found Challenge 6.0  three weeks before it ended, so I wasn’t able to intentionally pick my books ahead of time, rather I used the books I had read during the challenge period and tried to make them fit into the categories that were given.  This time the categories were posted June 1st and the Challenge starts July 1st.  I looked through my “To Be Read” list on Goodreads and found books that fit into each category. I’m looking forward to this!
