TCF'S Summer Seasonal Challenge

♢Duration: 6/21/18 - 09/22/18♢

🌞 Re-reads are allowed, any genre is acceptable, and there are no page minimums
🌞 Once you’ve read a book, strike through or check it and date it Posts with no completion dates/checks/strike throughs or Blank Posts will be skipped for participation counts!
🌞 Update your original post and post a "Finished!" comment when complete. DO NOT copy your entire original post and repost it when finished! Posts that copy your entire original post will be deleted!!
🌞 No reading until 6/21, but you can reserve your spot & put your lists together
🌞 This will be a six part challenge, pick your level then pick your books.
🌞 NO DUPLICATING BOOK OR TASK ENTRIES!! Books and Tasks are only to be used/listed/completed once! This is one large challenge, not six little ones! An example of this would be reading a book set in Verona, Italy for the "Read a book that's set in any place you've been to before or would like to travel to" task, and then reading a book set in London, England, justifying it by saying you want to visit both places. Once you complete the "Read a book that's set in any place you've been to before or would like to travel to" task, it can't be completed a second time to complete the category.
🌞 When completing the spell out section, you can use the Author's First OR Last Name, the Book Title, or the book's Series Title. And, The, A, and An can NOT be used when spelling out your words! Note: This rule does not apply to the specific task in Category 5!
