For anyone out there with a To Be Read list that seems like it will never end, this challenge is for you! This is all about making your own personal list of books 5? 10? 20? 30? more? that you want to commit to reading in 2016.
Books can be published in any year, be from any genre, and from any category -adult, YA, MG, Graphics, NF, etc titles. All that matters is that they are books you want to be sure not to forget as that TBR list continues to grow! These aren’t the only titles you will read over the year, but a list to help guide your reading.
If you would like to create and share a list, contact me on twitter (@CarrieGelson) or leave a link in the comments and I will add your list to the #MustReadin2016 lists below. Everyone is welcome!

I thought this year, we would try for 3 updates. I am proposing : April 8th, September 1st and December 31st. Update posts are purely optional! They can take whatever format you wish: highlighting your favourites, reasons for not reading, simply a list of what you have read, etc.
Ready for some inspiration?

Thanks so much for hosting this Carrie. It has been fun and inspiring to read other readers commitments.
Isn’t it? I agree!

Now I’m off to read everyone else’s lists and to discover all the titles that will try to pull me away from my Must Read list.
That’s certainly the danger!
Here’s my #MustReadin2016 list…can’t wait to start!
I finished one title before I had published the post!
Argh! My internet has been out all day until 20 minutes ago! I have my post written, but will have to upload it in the morning. Can’t wait to take a look at your lists! 🙂
No worries Virginia! I enjoy having them trickle in
