5th Annual BookSparks Summer Reading Challenge


As a BookSparks Frequent Flyer, I’m super excited about The 5th Annual BookSparks Summer Reading Challenge. It’s their biggest reading challenge yet and I’m set to read 18 books for them this summer.


I keep checking my porch for my box of books to arrive and the moment it does, I’m snatching The Grown Ups by Robin Antalek, and then I’m sitting down in my cozy reading chair to read, read, read.

I can’t wait to share this and 17 other book reviews with you as I read my way through their list this summer. I’ve even created a special “BookSparks Summer Reading Challenge” category on my book blog to organize the book review posts under one heading. (You’ll find that on the right sidebar of my home page.)

The BookSparks Summer Reading Challenge is hosted by author Jane Green with special guest appearances from Laura Dave; Jane Porter; Glamour Books Editor, Liz Egan; and Mary Kubica. I’m reading a book a week and will be posting book reviews on my book blog and on popular online book review sites.

It’s gonna be a great summer!

  1. Wow! You are ambitious to tackle that with the kids home from school and all the interruptions. My summer reading will definitely slow down now that my granddaughter will be living close by. 🙂
    I am looking forward to reading your reviews and seeing which books are in that box.
    Now go grab that first book and some of our dear friend Earl Grey.

  2. I agree with Michelle: it does sound a little ambitious! But so much fun, too. I just clicked through to see the book list – what a great collection of titles and covers!
