Summer Reading Challenge: Finish Line


Today is the last day of summer, and with it comes the end of the Summer Reading Challenge. Thank you to everyone who participated in this, my first challenge. I hope it provided a little extra motivation to read this summer.

So how did you do? Did you get through the original list you put together back in June? Did you switch things around and pick up different books? Are you happy with the amount of reading you did this summer? I'd love to hear how you did, so link up below to your final blog post, or leave a comment and let me know. Also, what was your favorite book this summer?

I finished my list (and several other books as well) this summer. I am glad to report that I actually enjoyed the majority of the books I read. There weren't any big duds in my opinion. I would say my favorites were The Girls: A Novel by Lori Lansens, and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larsson.

If you wrote reviews for the books you read for this challenge, be sure to add links to the Summer Reading Challenge Reviews linky!

Thanks again for joining this challenge. Hopefully I'll see some of you at the Fall Into Reading challenge hosted by Callapidder Days.

  2. The Summer Reading Challenge kept me going this summer. I got sidetracked from my original list by cozy mysteries. I enjoyed every one of them and have more on my list for the fall. Thanks so much for hosting the challenge!

  3. Thanks for hosting the challenge! I hadn't realised that I've read so many books this summer until now when I was doing the wrap-up post :) I can't choose my favorite book because I read a lot of amazing books :)
