Challenge Completion: Full House Reading Challenge 2015

Full House Reading Challenge 2015; hosted by Book DateRULES: This challenge runs from January 1st to December 31st, 2015.  Create a post committing to your participation.  Read and review books based on topics on the card below.  There will be a link every quarter for you to add your reviews as you go along.  The goal is to complete the full house card, with one free exchange if there is something on a square that you really dislike.

Here are all the books I read for this challenge!  You could say I used my free exchange for the "Award Winning" square because I technically only read an award finalist not the actual winner.  I had a lot of fun reading these categories this year.  I spent most of my time reading books I wanted to read then seeing if they fit any of the criteria, but a couple of the squares I went searching for books.  Both ways worked really well for me.  I look forward to doing this challenge again in 2016!
