Dee | 851 comments OLYMPICS! So exciting!!! I am a big lover of sports :) I nearly chose another idea for this month – glad I remembered the Olympics. This will be another very broad month (will make up for next month with is a hard one).

You will need to choose books with a theme of sports in it. They don’t have to be Olympic sports. This is perfect for NA books as there are so many books with a theme of sports especially college books.

If you need ideas have a look at the:
“sports” books - https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...
“college” books - https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

Option 1 Easy – 1 bonus point for reading 5 books with any sports theme.
OR
Option 2 Harder – 2 bonus points for reading 5 books with a different sport in each book. Such as 1 book with football Sweet Home (Sweet Home, #1) by Tillie Cole , 1 book with baseball The Perfect Game (The Perfect Game, #1) by J. Sterling , 1 book with MMA fighting Naked Choke by Celia Loren , 1 book with Roller Derby Love and Skate (Love and Skate, #1) by Lila Felix , 1 book with boxing Beautiful Disaster (Beautiful, #1) by Jamie McGuire . Other examples include Surfing The Moment of Letting Go by J.A. Redmerski , Formula 1 Revved (Revved, #1) by Samantha Towle , Football – Rugby The Hooker and the Hermit (Rugby, #1) by L.H. Cosway Soccer Kulti by Mariana Zapata .

Mercedes | 257 comments Option 2 Harder – 2 bonus points for reading 5 books with a different sport in each. Not sure I'm going to finish :\

1/5 Completed

1. Happily Ever All-Star A Secret Baby Romance by Sosie Frost Football (Read 8/20-8/21)
2. HardBall by C.D. Reiss Baseball (Read 8/23-8/25)
3. Fighting Silence (On the Ropes, #1) by Aly Martinez Boxing
4. Talk to Me (Public Lives, #1) by Clare James Hockey
5. Branding the Virgin by Alexa Riley Bull Rider (Read 8/17-8/18) Not sure if this one will count because he is a retired bull rider, only references his accident/bull riding. Amazon has it under NA but it says it's only 68 pages, I didn't see a page stipulation in the rules but this may be too short...

I finished right on time :) I watched the Olympics a lot. More than I thought I would watch. Mostly hockey and gymnastics. You?

We watched everything! Whatever happened to be playing at the time. Got a little disappointed when it finished as there's nothing on TV, back to reading though so that good.

I also watched everything, but those two sports were my favorites. I really discovered hockey. Yes, more reading time :D
