Reading Challenge! 25 Books every smart women should read by ELLE Magazine

I found this list whilst browsing the internet the other day and thought it was a very interesting concept.. I like to think as myself as a 'smart women' and I love to learn and indulge myself in knowledge.
I have decided to set myself a challenge to try to read all of these before the end of 2015!
I thought it might be something a little different and something to get me motivated to read more as I have been slacking over the past few years although I do really enjoying settling down with a good book and at times could happily read for hours on end!
I will be keeping you updated on my progress month by month and fingers crossed i'll make it through!
Wish me luck!
