    Summer Reading Challenge

    So I’ve been in this weird reading rut. I have seriously gone in circles and reread books I already have on my iBooks app. I seriously have so many books to read but I just sit looking out my window on my commute. I was following A Short Blonde’s reading challenge, which lead me to Modern Mrs. Darcy and here we are, my new summer reading challenge. I can read about 2-3 books per week, depending on length and how invested I am. So I’m excited to see what I can get into!

    Here is my list:

    summer reading1. A book published this year | The Season by Jonah Lisa Dyer and Stephen Dyer

    I’m getting this book from First to Read and from the description it’s supposed to be like a YA version of Pride and Prejudice with a fun twist. It’s about two sisters as they do their debut in society. I’m still a fan of YA books so I’m excited for a light, fun read.

    2. A book you can finish in a day | It by Alexa Chung

    This book inspires me so much and I always feel like buying pretty clothes and writing for fun. It’s short and has tons of visuals like a virtual diary. Alexa Chung is my favorite and this book is pretty.

    3. A book you’ve been meaning to read | Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

    I been wanting to read this one before the movie came out and never got around to it. Plus, every time I try to buy it through Kindle it doesn’t let me! So I have to go pick up at a bookstore soon.

    4. A book recommend by your local librarian or bookseller | Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt

    The last time I read this book was in 5th grade, and I admit, I didn’t really read it so I would love to go back and see what it’s about. I actually got my copy gifted so it was perfect!

    5. A book you should have read in school | The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton

    Okay, so when I was younger I wasn’t a fan of reading like I am now. I totally skipped on this one and pretended I read it. Whoops.

    6. A book chosen by a relative | Queen of the South by Arturo Perez-Reverte

    My sister picked this out for my after seeing the show is based on a book. I’m excited to see a more in depth take on this chaotic, intense story!

    7. A book published before you were born | Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis

    I’m a fan of C.S. Lewis and honestly, it’s weird I haven’t read this book yet.

    8. A book that was banned at some point | To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

    Should I feel ashamed that I’ve never read this? I feel like I missed out on what everyone was talking about, especially when the prequel came out.

    9. A book you previously abandoned | The Best of Me by Nicholas Sparks

    Look, I’ve never read a Sparks book. I did watch the movie so I decided to give it a go but I felt like the constant flashbacks threw me off so I stopped. I’ll finish it.

    10. A book you own but have never read | Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie

    I love Peter Pan, so I’ve had this but never read it. I lowkey feel like it will ruin the animated story I know.

    11. A book that intimidates youThe Abolition of Man by C.S. Lewis

    I read this book for my capstone class in college, but I feel like I never fully understood it. It’s intense! I feel like it also talks so truthfully about human nature and what we can become if we loose touch of rationality. 

    12. A book you’ve already read at least once | Looking for Alaska by John Green

    Probably my favorite book by John Green. I’ve been curious to go back and reread why I loved it so much.
