Goodreads Summer Reading Challenge

Goodreads is having a summer reading challenge, and I think it sounds like a great way to keep myself on track with reading this summer.

Goodreads Summer Reading Challenge

They have Beginner and Expert level challenges, and while I’d usually try for the Expert level, I think I’m going to try the Beginner level because I have a lot of stuff do this summer, between packing for college, two weeks of summer immersion, and SuperCon.

Will I read all these? Probably not.

Will I read books other than these? Probably.

But its nice to have a goal. Even a futile one.

 

Before I Leave For College TBR

I have a lot of books. More books that I haven’t read than that I have. I cannot bring all these books to a tiny dorm room in North Carolina all the way from South Florida.

So I need to read this summer. A Lot.

I start driving up for school August 15th. School doesn’t end until June 4th, but I am done with testing and the bulk of my school work. So, from now till August 15th, these are my reading goals.

These books are:

  • Books I own physically (not ebooks)
  • Books I’ve been meaning to read for TOO LONG.
  • Some may be books I’ve been meaning to re-read for a long time.

  • Illuminae
  • Gemina
  • Obsidio
  • Norse Mythology
  • City of Heavenly Fire
  • Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy
  • The Language of Thorns
  • Caraval
  • Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda
  • The Upside of Unrequited
  • Leah on the offbeat
  • Stay Sweet
  • Almost Midnight
  • Because You Love to Hate Me
  • Summer Day Summer Nights
  • Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
  • And probably some other books if I can…

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’d Slay a Lion to Get Early

Top Ten Tuesdays are a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
As always this list is in no particular order.

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
