This month's challenge is about summer colours.
-Read as many books as you can with these summer colours on the cover or one of these colours in the book title.
-Looking for about half the cover to be one or more of these colours.
-Variations of each colour ie scarlet,crimson,gold etc are fine.

red,yellow,orange,pink

I applaud everyone that reads that book! It's one of my favourite novels ever, and the author seemts to be a really nice guy.

Let me know what you think of it! I'd love to discuss it :)

I certainly enjoyed reading his novella The Kill Crew so I'm looking forward to this one. I liked his writing style and it sounds like he does something different with his plots. I'd love discuss it with you when I read it!

I just wanted to say I finished them, not all necessarily in July, because I was listening to The Secret History of the Pink Carnation (Pink Carnation, #1) by Lauren Willig on the way back, driving through the boring plains of South Dakota (apologies for slandering the state if someone loves it there). Finished that Friday the 5th, but I'm counting it because it was on the trip (which started in July).
