DAILY DECEMBER #29 // The 2015 book review challenge

I'm a huge lover of books, which you may know if you saw the books lovers' survey I did a few months ago - and when I saw this post on the lovely Megan's blog, I was intrigued! I have decided I'm not going to specifically read all these books in 2015: I'm going to review them, so some of the books may be ones I've already read that fall into the specific category! I'll bold-ify the parts of the list that I've done, and add links :)

A classic romance
A book that became a movie - CLICK HERE
