Do able, but a bit rushed for my taste. Look at the distances between each city on bahn.de and make sure you can handle it. Your budget should be fine as long as you stay in hostels.

Reykjavik, London, Lille, Berlin, Kraków, Lviv, Istanbul, Selçuk, Pamukkale, Kızkalesi, Göreme, Kars, Bat'umi, Akhalts'ikhe, Tbilisi, Telavi, Istanbul

Looks quite doable, though you are covering some pretty long distances between stops, and night trains can wear you down.
The budget might be a bit tight but you can eat a lot of doner kebabs and/or pasta.

Unless you really want to see Nice I’d give an extra day or two to Rome and take a cheap flight from Rome to Barcelona.

Do you guys think I should take 1 day from granada and add it to Fes or Marrakech to allow for day trips from there. Ives been to Granada before.

Have your friends been to Granada? If you’re only going to spend one day I’d just skip it and instead of taking the really long train ride(s) to get to Tarifa (actually train to Algeciras and then bus), just fly to Morocco from Barcelona.
