Summer Reading Challenge: Start Reading!


Today is the first day of summer, which means it's time to start the Summer Reading Challenge! If you'd like to join me in this challenge, please add a link below to a post on your blog where you list out the books you're going to read this summer: from June 21st through September 21st. You can read all the details about the challenge here. If you'd like to use my Summer Reading Challenge button, it's over on the sidebar.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you're all reading! Here's my personal list. It includes books I have for review, book club selections, books that meet other challenge criteria and books from my TBR pile. I also added the last Stieg Larsson book because I'm sure I'll be reading that before the end of the summer!

  1. I am Hutterite by Mary-Ann Kirkby
  2. Finding Marco by Kenneth Cancellara
  3. City of Dreams by William Martin
  4. The Big Ten of Grammar by Dr. William B. Bradshaw
  5. The Girls: A Novel by Lori Lansens
  6. Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea by Chelsea Handler
  7. The Stepford Wives by Ira Levin
  8. Letters to My Daughter by Maya Angelou
  9. Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See
