Stories & Verse (StoriesVerse) | 253 comments I am actually working on the Inside Out by Lisa Renee Jones Read Along for the rest of the year(https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/...) but the books I am planning to read might fit into a few of the categories :

- Book published in August
- Herorine rescues her friends
- plot twist
- someone goes home - or is trying to get there.


Hopefully this works out. If It doesn't I will go through my to read list to see if I can find a few books to squeek through at the Munchkin level.

If I had more time, I would probably try for Toto, I’ve a Feeling We’re NOT in Kansas Anymore = 21 - 25 books, but I hate rushing through books so I will stay at Munchkin = 3-5 books or if there is time Why, if I Only had a Brain, I Could Wile Away the Hours = 6-10 books could also be a realistic level.

Lisa Kay (LisaKayAliceMaria) | 21896 comments Neat, Stories&Verse. Welcome to the challenge! BTW, you don't have to stick to doing it over the summer, unless you want to; you may set your own timeline.
