Eclectic Reader Challenge 2015 Wrap-Up Post

The Eclectic Reader Challenge, hosted over on Book'd Out, challenged me to read 12 books in different categories, many of which I don't normally read at all. I completed it on the 10th of October, and while it was interesting, I really don't think I have the energy to go again this year. I need to cut down on the challenges, and this is one of the ones that will have to go.
