  2. I got sidetracked from the challenge, but I have read some really good stuff lately! I really liked The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up!!! I'm going to give it a go with her principle of getting rid of everything that doesn't give you joy. Although I'm going to make exceptions for things like socks and toothpaste, joyful or not. ;-) I also finished The Martian, which was a total 5 star.

  7. I'm a little envious you have time to read that many books over a summer! Seriously. I couldn't accomplish that in a year. At what age do my kids have to be before I have time for the luxury of reading again???

  10. Wow, girl you are so impressive with all that reading. I'm reading Voyager right now, it's the third book in the Outlander series. It's really good, so far it's my favorite one.

  24. Code Name Verity is SO good and the characters are super kick ass. One of my favorite reads in the last few years. This is also a good reminder that I'm slacking a bit on my challenge - got to jump back on board! :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Good job, girl! And can't wait to see what you think about You! Code Named Verity sounds so "up my alley"!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I've been meaning to read some books by Jenny Han...the one you've listed looks good. Great job!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. What a great list! I haven't read Paper Towns, but it's on my TBR list :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. I've had Code Name Verity on my to read list for a while. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on that one.

  29. way to go! I'm always jealous of your readings - I just started a new heavy read so I need to do a bok post asap! Hope you enjoyed the weekend!

  30. I haven't been linking up with check in posts mostly because I've been reviewing the books as I get through them for the Show Us Your Books! link-up. I'll definitely link up for the final check in, though!

    I have 2 books left: Last Train to Babylon and, like you, You. (That last bit seemed really awkward, but I'll just go with it.) I was tempted to change some of my books around, but I decided to stick with my original list since I really wanted to read all of them.

  31. you are kicking arse with the challenge! i read 4 mags over the weekend, does that count? hehe. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'm slacking on this challenge, but mostly because I keep getting notices from the library that a different book I've been waiting for is now available so I jump on it so I don't lose my place in the hold queue. Still gunning for that wild card though!
