Review: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

For this two month challenge, as well as our September one, we will be picking one overall winner (again!). At the end of our Vacation Quarterly Challenge there will be one winner that wins a prize of getting to choose a book from bookdepository.com. They can pick any book up to $10. For this to happen, we will be combining the points from the two month challenge (July-August), our September challenge, and our Vacation Quarterly together to pick that winner.

Hello team! Sorry I haven't been that chatty lately - super busy at work! Does anyone have any planned books for the next two months? Since this will be a two month challenge :D

I think I have one or two books planned (not quite sure yet) but I will make a July and August shelf sometime today and then add it here!


message 11: by Caroline (new)

Caroline | 2101 comments I don’t usually plan what to read in advance, but I just made this list of some things I am thinking about reading: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list...

I have a question about books we start before July and finish in July or August. Do we get partial credit for pages we read in July and August? Or does it need to be started after July 1 to count?


message 12: by Alaina, Head of Monthly Challenges & Keeper of BR Threads (new)

Alaina (ameserole) | 63499 comments Mod
Well it’s a page challenge so you would just be able to claim the pages that you read in July if you started a book before that month. So if you had a book that was 400 pages but you read 50 in July then you would just claim the 50 pages


message 13: by Caroline (new)

Caroline | 2101 comments Great, thanks!

this is what I have so far: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list...

I'll probably add more tomorrow


message 15: by Caroline (new)

Caroline | 2101 comments Ooh, I really liked Lolita! I hope you like it too!

I have been meaning to read Inferno - I would buddy read it if you want.

Alaina (ameserole) | 63499 comments Mod
Omg yes please! Do you have a specific day in mind?


message 17: by Caroline (new)

Caroline | 2101 comments I need to finish some books up, so maybe mid July? Or later is fine too!

message 25: by Caroline (new)

Caroline | 2101 comments Oh, cool, have fun with Lolita! I probably won't participate much since I already read it, but I want to see what you think of it.

Not sure how this usually works, but I found this thread for The Alchemist that is not that old, so I started adding comments to it: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

I would absolutely BR Animal Farm or Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine or Inferno! (I actually already read 1984, so I changed the TBR to just Animal Farm.) But probably only one at a time, lol!


message 26: by Caroline (new)

Caroline | 2101 comments You want to start that one July 14 too? Or later since you are starting Lolita then?


message 27: by Caroline (new)

...I'm so used to doing the bookcovers that I combined all the things together. Oops.

Not really sure of start dates... Maybe My Lady Jane on the 1st, Scythe and Thunderhead starting on the 5th and The Queen's Rising on the 10th? If that works?

Natalie (esaria) | 471 comments Here's my 2018 list, anyone want to BR any of these? c:

I've been working out books to read for the year based on the yearly challenges I'm doing (e.g. the Popsugar Reading Challenge, A - Z challenge, Colour Challenge (I NEED A BOOK WITH A PINK COVER DAMMIT), Every Year challenge and Modern Mrs. Darcy Challenge). So... many... prompts @_@

I’m also down for: Prince of Thorns (The Broken Empire, #1) by Mark Lawrence Finnikin of the Rock (Lumatere Chronicles, #1) by Melina Marchetta Obsidio (The Illuminae Files, #3) by Amie Kaufman Walk on Earth a Stranger (The Gold Seer Trilogy, #1) by Rae Carson A Reaper at the Gates (An Ember in the Ashes, #3) by Sabaa Tahir The Radium Girls The Dark Story of America's Shining Women by Kate Moore Circe by Madeline Miller The Prince and the Dressmaker by Jen Wang .

Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young & Children of Blood and Bone (Legacy of Orïsha, #1) by Tomi Adeyemi were both good!! I’m sure you’ll love them.

I'm meant to be reading Walk on Earth a Stranger right now in YA BR Corner 8'D (...oops... fell very far behind). Did you want to BR that starting on the 1st as well? Then I can just start slightly late in the other one or something XD;;

As for the others, any idea when you might want to BR them (in July or August)? c:

Fair XD I've been trying to decide for ages what to read for Pink, so that helped me out IMMENSELY <3 That's my last one to complete for that challenge and then all the colours are done and I can focus on the other challenges (...and then probably pick up another because clearly I like to put lots of pressure on myself).

NICE.
The only thing is for me, when I do multiple year-long challenges I don't let myself use the same book twice ;D For monthly or quarterly I don't see an issue with it, but for year-long ones I feel I should only use each book once, y'know?

It does make things a bit difficult though sometimes XD''

I have no problem using the same book multiple times. lol. I can see why you wouldn't want to though. I'm just too lazy to not use them multiple times. :P

Completely fair XD I might do that towards the end of the year if I hit difficulties (...which I probably will), but for now I'm not doing too badly which is nice! c:

Fine with the 1st! We can definitely spread them out between the two months if you want - since this is a two month challenge :D

Sounds good, thank you! Two-month challenges are very helpful honestly - especially with my reading going weird lately, and I'm expecting to have very little time in late July/early August 8'D
