Book Awards II Challenge Wrap-Up

Yes, you read that right. I am finally done with the Book Awards II Challenge, and let me tell you that it was so much fun to do! I actually got out of my comfort zone and read some books that normally wouldn't appeal to me and I can honestly say I was not disappointed.
