[Book Bingo] January-March, 2015

Hey all! My New Years Resolution for reading (that I made like just now) is to read outside of my comfort zone. As you can tell from my blog, my area of expertise is mostly YA and Urban Fantasy. And while I will probably be mainly reading from those genres, I don't want those to be the only books on my blog. So because of that, I am participating in the New Year Book Bingo.
