20 (well, 15) books of summer sign up!

Hey y’all! I’ve seen a few folks (Misty, Carla, Dini) posting about joining a reading goal for the summer of 20 books from June 1st (whoops) to September 1st. I’m a bit late, but I wanted to join in! The catch, if you don’t mind me calling it that, is to also review all of the books read in that time / chosen list. Which is where my strength tends to fail me. xD

So since I’m late and am not sure I’ll read 20 more books in the next two months, I’m going to try this year out at 15! Maybe next year I’ll start on time and give it a 20, but I’m already 5 books in to June right now so I’ve shot myself in the foot a bit with this. For my purposes, I’m also going to include books as counted if I DNF them (and review them for why!) since that means I gave it a shot and got it off my list.

Anyway! The original challenge is created and hosted at 746 Books, and you can check out the details and snag some pretty graphics if you want to join as well. You can comment on their sign up post to add your own too!

I’m going to add these as more of categories than specific book list. For example, I’ll add Sankofa to this list as a book to read, but any Book of the Month book that I haven’t read will fill that slot if not that book. Covers link to Goodreads or my review once it’s up! I’ll update the covers with the books I actually end up using, as well, but my original list includes my first-picked titles. 🙂

The reviews!

As I finish and post reviews (whether on this blog or on Goodreads) I’ll link them here!

  1. Yay I’m so glad you decided to join. Even though you’re just now signing up you can still count the books you’ve read so far for this month and you do t have to review as soon as you finish them. So long as your reviews are up by the time the challenge end you’re good. I’m bad at procrastinating writing my reviews.

  2. Ooh, yay! I was also pretty late to sharing my possibilities post but better late than never! 😉 You’ve got some great looking reads on here, a few that I’m also looking forward to reading eventually lol, so I hope you do enjoy them. Good luck with the challenge and happy reading! 😃
