So when I read Amanda's post yesterday about the books she's reading this summer, I was intrigued. Megan at Semi-Charmed Kind of Life is hosting a Summer 2014 Reading Challenge starting today!!!!
This is my proposed Reading List for the summer, although I retain the right to change my mind!
5 points: Freebie! Read any book that is at least 200 pages long.
10 points: Read a book that was written before you were born.
I've had Eight Cousins by Louisa May Alcott on my to-read list for years.
10 points: Finish reading a book you couldn't finish the first time around.
I've been struggling with Maphead by Ken Jennings. It's good, but books about geography are not really my thing.
10 points: Read a book from the children’s section of the library or bookstore.
15 points: Read a book that is on The New York Times' Best Sellers List when you begin reading it.
This will be difficult. I have no idea.
15 points: Read a historical fiction book that does not take place in Europe.
I ended up reading Lucky Us by Amy Bloom. READ AND REVIEWED!
15 points: Read a book another blogger has already read for the challenge.
Clearly I can't pick this out yet!
20 points: Read a book with “son(s),” “daughter(s)” or “child(ren)” in the title.
20 points: Read a book that was/will be adapted to film in 2014.
Everyone keeps talking about Divergent, so FINE. I will read it.
25 points: Read a book written by a blogger.
Great excuse to buy Jesus Feminist by Sarah Bessey or Redefining Girly by Melissa Atkins Wardy.
25 points: Read a biography, autobiography or memoir.
I loved Seriously, I'm Kidding by Ellen Degeneres and Bossypants by Tina Fey. Next up... Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling.
30 points: Read a pair of books with antonyms in the titles.
Actually read American Savage: Insights, Slights, and Fights on Faith, Sex, Love, and Politics instead. READ AND REVIEWED! (Abstinence and sex are basically antonyms, right?)
What's on your summer reading list?
