Summer: No school for the kiddos, being able to FINALLY sleep in, pools, the beach, cute dresses and skirts, and lazing around with a book in one hand and a cocktail in the other. YES!!! Those are clearly the things that I look forward to in the summer anyway. With that, I decided to get my own summer reading challenge going. It's going to revolve around summer themed books and those that have either been sitting on my TBR for a while for ones that I have been wanting to read. Now, although June 1 is not the beginning of summer it IS close enough so I'll pledge this challenge from June 1 - September 1.
Books on my Challenge List
Here you will find the covers for all the books that I am going to (try) and read through the summer. Once I have read them I will add a link to my review. Let's see how this goes!
