Literary Ladies Summer Reading Challenge – Preliminary List


I know.  I know.  I posted a reading list yesterday but there is SO MUCH happening right now that involves reading.  In addition to all my favorite authors having books out and receiving so many great recommendations, there is also the Literary Ladies Summer Reading Challenge that I have agreed to participate in.  It is run by three of my favorite bloggers and I am pretty stoked about it.  Unfortunately, I am not off to the best start (as there was a preliminary list due on Sunday and I totally spaced on creating it).  Sorry Kristen, Kari and Kay!  Anyway, without further ado, here is my list:

* A YA book (mandatory!) ~ Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella

* Non US Author  (mandatory!) ~ Woman With a Secret by Sophie Hannah

* A book that was recommended by a blogger  (mandatory!) ~ Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austin (recommended by Kristen)

* A book that has been on your TBR list for a year or more ~ The Carrier by Sophie Hannah

* A book with a kickass female character ~ Divergent by Veronica Roth

* A book that is or will be a movie (or TV show) ~ The Martian by Andy Weir

* A book written by a comedian or celebrity ~ The Woman I Wanted to Be by Diane Von Furstenberg

* A book with a one word title ~ You by Caroline Kepnes 

* A suspenseful book – a mystery, a thriller, a book about revenge ~ The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins (recommended by every blogger I know)

* A book about Summer, with Summer in the title ~ Summer Secrets by Jane Green

So, that is my list.  It seems like I need to get my butt in gear because there are a lot of books up there.  I am excited to read each one though!

    We have two of the same books on our list 🙂 I HIGHLY recommend listening to The Martian on audiobook if I haven’t said that already. I have been catching on my way too and from work and I am in love!

    I just finished The Girl on the Train last night, and I thought it was fantastic! It deserves all the attention it is getting. I picked Pride & Prejudice too. I’ve promised Kristen I’d read it…it seems like a good time to do so. Good luck with the challenge!
