Summer Reading Challenge: Link Up


Does it feel like summer yet in your neck of the woods? As promised, the Summer Reading Challenge is officially beginning today! Share your summer reading lists on your blog and link up below.

Here are my reading goals for the summer:

Read 9 books, preferably books I already own. Although I reserve the right to change my mind, here are the books I’m currently planning to read:


The Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker (June)The Paris Wife by Paula McLain (July) – The Alienist by Caleb Carr (August)


Organized Simplicity by Tsh Oxenreider – The Violets of March by Sarah Jio – Daddylonglegs by Jean Webster – The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald


The Extraordinary Education of Nicholas Benedict by Trenton Lee Stewart The Selection by Kiera Cass – Bitter is the New Black by Jen Lancaster – Stories I Only Tell My Friends by Rob Lowe

Yes, I’m aware that the math doesn’t add up, but I thought I’d give myself a little wiggle room.

Now it’s your turn!

What does your summer reading challenge look like? Link up with your posts here:

    Wow, I am really late at getting around. Too late I’m afraid to start this challenge! 😦 All these books look pretty interesting. But, I read The Great Gatsby and was greatly disappointed. All the hype and it was just so, I don’t know, empty. I hope you have a better expereince with it than I did. Happy Reading!

    You have a great list there, Jen! The only one there that I’ve read is The Age of Miracles, which I really enjoyed.

    Hope you have a great summer of reading, and thanks for hosting!
