50 State Reading Challenge

The 50 States Challenge is hosted by Book Obsessed.
The goal of this challenge is to read books that are set in each of the fifty states. Your books can be of any genre and any format (ie. paperback, ebook, audiobook, etc.). No short stories. Re-reads and crossovers from other reading challenges are fine. You can list your books in advance or list them as you read them. The idea of this challenge came from a Goodreads group. 

I will post the books with the link to my review on this page as I read them next to the state they take place in.
