Goodreads has officially opened a site wide Summer Reading Challenge!

I figured what a better way to kick off the summer months than to open up the challenge here on Coffee & Books!

You can find the original post here

For this challenge you can join in on The Beginner Level OR The Expert Level. The Expert Level has all of the same ones, plus some, and you read it via month. IF you choose the Expert level, you can still start now with the "What to read during any month" section!

Rules!

When joining, make sure to say what level you are joining in.
Rereads are okay! Especially since some of the categories are asking for a reread
HAVE FUN!

Faith Anderson (faithhouleanderson) | 1 comments Any ideas for a book for Get Your Grill On?

I’m doing the expert level - though I’m going to start a little early so I can read that many books in a month.

I’m starting out with Golden Boy by Abigail Tarttelin. It will be my Take Pride pick, it features a young intersex child. I started it two days ago and it is captivating
