Now that it is August, it is time to report how I did on the 20 Books in July Reading Challenge.
Unfortunately I only finished 19 books, but I actually am pretty proud of that number. I have never attempted to read so many books, especially when I had really big things going on with my family at the same time, like weddings and vacations. It was a tremendous month of fun and books:
1. A Dog's Purpose by Bruce Cameron
2. Half-Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls
3. The Vow by Kim and Krickett Carpenter
4. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline (also part audio)
5. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
6. Zeitoun by Dave Eggers (nonfiction)
7. The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane by Katherine Howe
8. Lockdown: Escape from Furnace by Alexander Gordon Smith (YA)9. Sabriel by Garth Nix (YA)
10. Putting Make-Up on the Fat Boy by Bil Wright
11. Dying to Know You by Aidan Chambers
12. A Greyhound of a Girl by Roddy Doyle
13. Code Name Verity by Eizabeth Wein
14. Stotan! by Chris Crutcher
15. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer Smith
16. Cinder by Marissa Meyer (also part audio)
17. Friends With Boys by Faith Erin Hicks
18. Bride's Story 1 by Kaoru Mori
19. The Year of the Beasts by Cecil Castellucci and Nate Powell (1/2 graphic novel)
My favorite book of the month: Ready Player One by Ernest Cline.
Now I am off to a vacation in Italy. I will be checking in periodically but it is unlikely that I will blog much while away. "See you" in two weeks!
