2017 Reading Challenges!!!

I have decided that this year I need to expand my reading comfort zone.  I will occasionally delve into a non-fiction book but it isn't a genre I can easily get into so I need to challenge myself into reading them.  So in order to add some less read genre's I have decided to do both the 2017 Reading Challenge and The Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge (which will be posted on separate page).
Feel free to give me reading suggestions for any of these challenge's.  I am always up for a new suggestion.
