Literary Ladies Summer Book Challenge

Oh just me, popping in on Sunday. Who am I? 

It's gonna be a short one (or at least short by my standards) because I'm only posting to say 1) the Literary Ladies Summer Book Challenge begins today!, and 2) here's all the books I'm planning on reading. 

Also, as these novels are basically my top 10 summer reads as well, I'm linking up (albeit days late) with Top Ten Tuesdays hosted by The Broke and The Bookish!

preliminary book list

  • Read a Young Adult novel
    • Pssh! I have like all of my TBR to chose from because well, YA is my thaaang :) I'm leaning towards The Glass Sentence by S.E. Grove or Shadow & Bone by Leigh Bardugo
  • Read a novel written by a Non-US author.
  • Read a book recommended by a blogger (or instagrammer / you-tuber / goodreads-er).

  • Read a book that has been on your TBR list for a year or more.

  • Read a novel with a kickass female character.

    • Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas because, really, who's more kickass than Celaena Sardothien?

  • Read a book that is or will be a movie (or TV show)

  • Read a book written by a comedian or celebrity – or even a memoir if neither of those are your jam.

  • Read a novel with a one word title.

    • Emma by Jane Austen 

  • Read a suspenseful book – a mystery, a thriller, a book about revenge!

  • Read a book about summer, with summer in the title, or in any way related to summer (because this is a Summer challenge after all!)

I'm actually really excited about this challenge. Yeah sure it's the first challenge that I'm hosting. But I'm also looking forward to it being the first challenge I actually finish - because I mean I've gotta finish my own challenge, right?
