Summer Reading Challenge (Update 1)

You may remember that Erika, Cathy, and I challenged ourselves to reading from specific lists this summer.

Out of my 25 books I challenged myself to reading 18 of them by August 31st. Well, we're over a third of the way through the challenge and I've managed to read 6 off my list. I'm pretty happy with that number since it's exactly right on track to finishing 18 by the end of the summer. I know I'll get to some more soon since some of the ones I'd like to read next are for review for July/August.

I've bolded and/or linked to my review on Goodreads for the books off my list that I've read so far:

  1. Glitch by Heather Anastasiu
  2. A World Away by Nancy Grossman
  3. Auracle by Gina Rosati
  4. The Raft by S.A. Boden
  5. Vampire Empire by Clay Griffith & Susan Griffith
  6. Never Enough by Denise Jaden
  7. Meant To Be by Lauren Morrill
  8. The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner
  9. The Host by Stephanie Meyer
  10. Soulless by Gail Carriger
  11. Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken
  12. A Need So Beautiful by Suzanne Young
  13. Vengeance (Private #14) by Kate Brian
  14. The Death Cure by James Dashner
  15. Loving Emily by Anne Pfeffer
  16. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
  17. The List by Siobhan Vivian
  18. Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore
  19. Welcome, Caller, This is Chloe by Shelley Coriell
  20. Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson
  21. Changeling by Philippa Gregory
  22. For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund
  23. Endlessly by Kiersten White

  1. Wow, these are some great books Ashley! I loved The Fault in Our Stars (make sure you have a tissue box nearby), Brightly Woven (one of my FAVORITES), Soulless, The Thief, The Host, and Bitterblue. I hope you enjoy them as well! Happy Reading! :D

    Best of luck with the challenge.

    You got some seriously awesome books in that list

  3. Thank you for doing this! I was wondering how things were going. I'm doing my progress for halfway through. So far I've read 5.

  4. I'm very excited to read Glitch by Heather Anastasiu. It looks so amazing:)

    I'm currently reading The Death Cure, and I'm really enjoying it. I can't wait to read the prequel, The Kill Order.

    Good luck on your challenge!

    1. I just finished Glitch and I enjoyed it!! =)

      I loveddddd The Maze Runner, and The Scorch Trials was awesome as well, so I don't know why I've put off reading the third book. I even preordered it, and yet it's still waiting on my shelf.

      Thanks! =)


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