2014 Summer Book Challenge

June 1, 2014 Challenges, Summer Reading 2


I normally do not post challenges on separate pages but this one is so much fun that I just have to! That and I really need a place to remember what in the world I’m reading and how many points I have accrued…

The short and sweet: All books must contain 200 pages (whether audio, ebook, whatever) then do a monthly check in over at Semi-Charmed Kind of Life and post your progress. (Full rules here)

EASY right?! Right! Let’s do it…

** The titles in ( ) are what I plan to read **

    I’m honored to see my challenge got its own page over here. 🙂 I have to say, I was so excited when I learned they were making The Giver into a movie, but I watched a trailer last weekend, and either I don’t remember that book very well or they took very creative liberties to make the story more sci-fi-y so today’s youth would like it. Sigh…

      No! Don’t say that Megan! I’m so looking forward to reading that one! I hope they didn’t take too many liberties… sigh! And yes, you get your own challenge page because it is easier for me to keep track! 😀 Although I am way, way, WAY behind this time.
