Book Blogger Summer Reading Program

This challenge is hosted by Katie's Book Blog 

Details HERE // Start Date: 5/1/2014 // End Date: 9/1/2014

I remember participating in my local library's kids summer reading programs every year from when I was little up until I was too old. Therefore, when I found this very awesome challenge I couldn't resist. I had to sign up. Not to mention just like those years when I was young, there are prizes to win! :) Its not the only reason I'm participating, but it's a nice benefit.

My Goal is to read 35 books, which would keep me pretty close to staying on track with my 2014 goodreads challenge. I feel like I could read a little more since it's over the span of four months, but I don't want to push it since it is the summer and I have a family vacation among other things going on.

  1. What an awesome idea for a challenge! Sounds like a lot of fun & I hope you enjoy all your summer reads -- even if you don't stick to this list :)

    1. I'm super excited I came across this one!

  2. SO MANY GOOD BOOKS! We'll definitely have to have conversations over many of theses. I will definitely be reading A Mad Wicked Folly and On The Fence myself.

    1. I got my reading list inspiration mostly from you! :) I can't wait to discuss.

    2. you are the best bookish buddy :D :D

  3. I like that you have a list up already! You should also try reading some road trip books. I don't know what it is about them but they feel summery to me - Amy and Roger's Epic Detour is an amazing one (: ~ Good luck on your goal.

    1. I'm hoping that a list will give me some inspiration and help me stay on track a little bit. You are totally right, I need a road trip book. Thanks for the rec!

  4. Hope you enjoy Blonde OPS- not to make you paranoid, but all the computer hacks are possible... ;)

    1. haha thanks Charlotte and thanks for stopping by! I'm looking forward to reading your book.

  5. This is a fantastic challenge and I hope you reach your goals. You have chosen some awesome titles and authors.
