Summer Reading Challenge

This summer three bloggers are gathering together in support of reading. 


Erika at One A Day Y.A. 
Ashley at Book Labyrinth 

 What we are doing

We are reading books from our TBR lists. It's so easy to get distractrated when it comes to choosing the next book to read. New books come along, library finds are intriguing, and don't forget that random buy at the store! This challenge is designed to encourage us to read the books on our list. Since most of us also have a huge TBR list, it's also designed to make our choices limited and therefore easier to pick our next read.

When we are doing it

The challenge will run from June 1st to August 31st, 2012

The rules

  • Make a list of 25 books you'd like to read this summer (or which you've been meaning to read for a while) from your TBR list
  • Make a goal of how many books you'd like to read off this list during the summer
  • The only rule is you cannot change the books that you added to your list of 25 options once it is posted

My goal

I want to read 18 books from my list this summer.

Group goal

Collectively, we want to read 48 books off our lists this summer

  • Glitch by Heather Anastasiu

Cheer us on! Prizes are to be had!

At the end of the summer if we (Erika, Ashley, and Cathy) meet our group goal, Erika will be giving away a prize on each of our blogs. Cheer us on and help us reach our goal!


  1. The Host is one of my favourite books (5 stars). I remember also loving The Thief when I was in high school. You have so many others I'd love to read too.

  2. Good luck with your reading challenge! I've only signed-up for two this year so far and I plan to keep it that way (*knock on wood*) but this is a great way to catch up on your TBR pile.

  3. Ooooo such a good idea! And you have some fantastic ones on your list Ashley, I can't wait for Glitch and Auracle, I feel like I've been waiting for both for entirely too long:) Hope you reach your 18 book goal!

  4. Nice! I'll definitely be cheering you on. Looks like you have some great book to get through. Good luck, Ashley!

  5. This comment has been removed by the author.

  6. Woops, sorry, clicked too soon on previous comment.

    Anyway, this challenge sounds pretty good! I think I might try to do it on my own too, since I do need to tackle my TBR pile as well. And I love that this challenge has a definite timeline.

    You got some awesome books on your list! and I'll definitely be cheering you on! :D


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment; I appreciate each one!
