#bookaday Week 8


Summer Reading Challenge Hosted by Donalyn Miller

I have just realized that I have 13 DAYS until my #bookaday challenge is over! I need to get to reading! I have made it to the halfway point and am very proud that I got there. Anything over half is just bonus. It has definitely been a reading, blogging, and journaling summer (along with playing with my daughter and catching up with friends) and I honestly could not ask for a better break.

Here is my weekly update! It is a few days late, but that is life.

Total Books: 41/73

    What a great list of books! I keep hoping to be better about participating in challenges — I wasn’t able to read AT ALL last week, though, because I was catching up with family. Looking forward to what you think about Alexander Hamilton — that one’s been on my to-read list for a while.

      Thank you! I am honestly making this challenge because of childrens books! I am looking forward to finishing Alexander Hamilton. It is quite the beast of a book! I have been reading since January and am not even half way. It is a goal to finish by the end of the year.
