Dee | 851 comments This reading challenge will start on July 1, 2016 and end on July 31, 2016. This month we will be looking at the seasons of Summer and Winter. As it is currently the middle of Winter in Australia, though where I live you can mistake it for Summer I thought we could do both Summer and/or Winter theme. This will be very broad and similar to last month in that you can use book covers. If the cover looks to portray a Summer or Winter theme it can be used or if the book talks a lot about the weather status it can also be used. Total of 7 points allocated this month. 3 points for 3 books set in Summer and 3 points for 3 books set in Winter. 1 bonus point for reading 3 Summer books and 3 Winter books.

Ideas for Summer books
Unbroken (Beachwood Bay, #1) by Melody Grace Love on the Ledge (On the Verge #2) by Zoraida Córdova Next to Me by Allie Everhart

Ideas for Winter books

That's fine - just write a sentence to explain to members why you chose that book and the relation to 'summer'.
