10 Books in 10 Weeks: A Summer Reading Challenge

I’m almost certain PBG over at Dirty Pretty Thangs didn’t mean for her post, 10 Books in 10 Weeks:  Our Summer Reading Challenge to become a challenge beyond her own household but it did.  I’m joining her for 10 Books in 10 Weeks, which began for her on 20 June and will end on Labor Day.  Since I’m a couple of days late ain’t that always the case with me? I’ma start the challenge just as soon as I get home from work today and go from there.

My four choices for 28 June to 20 July are:

Group 1 Books

My four choices for 21 July to 21 August are:

10 Books 10 Weeks Group 2

My two choices for 22 August to Labor Day are:

10 Books 10 Weeks Group 3

I will, of course, post reviews as I finish reading them.

What types of books do you read?  Have you ever joined a reading challenge?  How did you make out?

    My goodreads challenge is to read 12 books this year. It is quite challenging. Can’t wait to hear the review for The Room. I have that one on my list.

    • You know, when you set the challenge, you always think you can do it and then life steps in and laughs at you.  🙂  I’m looking forward to The Room, it seems quite popular.

  • Anonymous

    I’m at least halfway to ten, I’ve been reading quite a bit lately. 

    The Book Their is quite good.  The Reliable Wife? Creepy, but not in a good way.

    I just put The Hand that First Held Mine on hold!

    • Those books have been on my “to read” shelf for a long time, I’m finally going to get the chance to read them so… 

  • Mimi

    I have been so crappy at reading. The reading queen has been dethroned due to her time spent doing everything OTHER than reading. =) I have a book for our church book club, but that’s about it. I did the Spring Read Thing & Fall Read Thing but those are the only ones.

    • Oh no!  It’s hard when life gets in the way of our living.  Hopefully, you can get back into the habit of reading soon.

  • Room and The Book Thief are on my list. Then again, so are a couple hundred other books.

    • I’m looking forward to reading them.  Another good one is Sara’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay.  So incredibly sad but a good read, nevertheless.
