Reading Challenge 2015

I saw this Reading Challenge on somebody's blog today. I am not sure if it was started on Goodreads or if Goodreads just picked it up and it was started on Popsugar, but I like it either way. 
There are 52 WEEKS & 52 TOPICS. I won't try to read them in the right order, but I'd like to read as many of the topics as possible, so I will fill my list up slowly during the year and might post about my progress every once in a while...

1. a book with more than 500 pages: "The Goldfinch" by Donna Tartt (currently reading)
2. a romance:
3. a book that became a movie:

  1. I just recently heard about this book, The Goldfinch, and want to make it my next read. I never read anything until it's old news, it seems, so it will be different to read it while so many others are. I read The Secret History like 16 years ago and have read nothing by Tartt since.
    I love the way you're doing with a book challenge what I'd do with photography. Great idea, Corinne!

    1. It's my first book by Donna Tartt. The book kept being mentioned on Goodreads and I didn't have anything to read either at home nor on my iPad, so it felt like the right time. I read a bit more than half of it so far. I like the way it's written a lot, but it's very sad and depressing (I get down while I am reading it somehow, so I need to take a lot of breaks with it)
      What kind of photo challenge are you doing? Do you also have 52 topics you have to do in a year? That sounds very tempting ;-)
