What I'm Reading for BookRiot's #readharder challenge

I'm a fan of BookRiot, so back in December or January or whenever-it-was when they devised a 2015 reading challenge, I thought it sounded like a lot of fun.

Here's a link, but the basic idea is to read your way through 24 categories of book:

A book written by someone when they were under the age of 25
A book written by someone when they were over the age of 65
A collection of short stories
A book published by an indie press
A book by or about someone that identifies as LGBTQ
A book by a person whose gender is different from your own
A book that takes place in Asia
A book by an author from Africa
A book that is by or about someone from an indigenous culture
A microhistory
A YA novel
A sci-fi novel
A romance novel
A National Book Award, Man Booker Prize or Pulitzer Prize winner from the last decade
A book that is a retelling of a classic story
An audiobook
A collection of poetry
A book that someone else has recommended to you
A book that was originally published in another language
A graphic novel, a graphic memoir or a collection of comics of any kind
A book that you would consider a guilty pleasure
A book published before 1850
A book published this year
A self-improvement book

I made up my list in January and have been chipping away at it since. Seemed like the sort of thing to share on my blog! So here you go: 24 books in 20 minutes.
