It’s finally June! I’m not sure about where you live, but here in Michigan it has been raining – a lot. One way to spend a rainy day is to read. In January we created and shared our own Reading Challenge list.

You can find that challenge right here if you haven’t seen it yet:  2019 reading challenge  

If you have seen it and are trying our challenge, I would love to hear how you are doing with the list. There are 25 boxes to mark off and I am pretty excited to share that I have marked off 16 boxes already.

If you’re looking for suggestions here’s what I have:

  • A book that is a popular fairy tale: Wanted by Betsy Schow  (This is her version of the Wizard of Oz.)
  • A book that’s been made into a movie: The Kite Runner by Khaled Hossein
  • A book published in 2019: Before the Broken Star by Emily R. King
  • An Audio book: Antebellum Awakening by Katie Cross
  • A book you can read in a day: The Last Necromancer by C.J. Archer
  • An author who uses initials: Wasting by D.K. Holmberg
  • A book told from multiple character POV: Friended by Kilby Blades
  • A book with a plant in the title or on the cover: And I Darken by Kiersten White
  • A book you think should be turned into a movie: Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi
  • A classic you’ve never read: Dracula by Bram Stoker
  • A GoodReads 2018 Winner: Hearding Cats by Sarah Anderson
  • A genre you don’t usually read: Hands Free Mama by Rachel Macy Stafford
  • A book that made you cry: The Siren by Kiera Cass
  • A book with more than 400 pages: Rumble by Ellen Hopkins
  • A book you own but haven’t read: A Book of Dragons by Ruth Manning Sanders
  • The first book in a series: Caraval by Stephanie Garber

It’s not too late to join our reading challenge. If you have read or plan to read any of these books, please share your feelings on them. Especially the book to movie adaptions. All of us book lovers always pick the book over a movie and some of us get upset hearing one of our favorites will become a movie because “they will just ruin it;” but I am curious to see what others would like to see on the big screen.
