Summer Book challenge

It’s already July and I do not have any books ready to review for you from June.  I have had a crazy month.  My kids finished school, My son had basketball almost every weekend, I had to prepare for our annual Fourth of July party and to top it off I got a horrible case of poison ivy.  Of course I wanted the yard to look nice for the party and The entire family worked outside for weeks.  Well I had a severe reaction and have had the rash for over 20 days now. I’ve been on a steroid pack, a steroid spray and 2 cortisone shots. I think it just has to run its course.

June's book chatter is a Summer Reading challenge www.yourstrulyjenn.com

The Fourth of July party went really well. It was our 6th annual party and everyone had a blast.  It was our biggest party yet.  The food menu was amazing and I had so many party rentals that our guests had an amazing time.  My husband out did himself on the fireworks this year.

I thought I would do a summer reading challenge because that is the season I can actually devote more time to reading.  If you feel the same way, take these ideas and try some new books that you wouldn’t normally try.

Summer Reading Challenge

  • Read a trilogy
  • Read a book that has been made into a movie
  • Read the newest book from your favorite author
  • Check out a new author you haven’t read before
  • Read a non fiction book about a topic that interest you
  • Read a self help book
  • Read a book from a different genre than you normally read
  • Reread one of your favorite books
  • Read a classic
  • Read a book recommended by a friend
  • Start a book club
  • Read a biography about someone you admire
  • Read a book you started but never finished
  • Read a book on the bestseller’s list
  • Read a book you purchased but never read

I know there are books on this list that I can start reading tonight.  I have some in mind that would work perfectly for some of these categories. It doesn’t take much time and effort, but it’s so much fun to play a little game while you read. Let me know what books you choose for what categories.  I would love to hear what you’re currently reading.

Yours Truly,
