Because it's summer all these reading challenges/clubs are popping up and I'm like how can I do ALL THE THINGS? Seriously, I made it kinda like couponing. Cross categories on some books to meet both challenges at the same time! I don't see that as breaking rule, but I'm a rebel. #dontcare
Here are the challenges/clubs I want to participate in/read books for:
Book Challenge by Erin (categories in THIS COLOR)
Literary Ladies Book Club (categories in THIS COLOR)
I was also reading with the Cyber Book Club, but that has mostly been unsuccessful (in terms of the actual meeting part, the reading part is easy) so I'm giving it up unless the next book is one that can meet the criteria of the current challenges.
My book list:
|I wrote that shit out like a boss.|

Anyone have any warning/praises for any of these books? Most of them I've gotten from the Show Us Your Books linkup and I tried to pull as many as I could off my TBR list as possible (killing as many birds with as few stones as possible).
I've found almost all my books for my challenge, but I was wondering if anyone had kindle versions of Still Alice by Lisa Genova or You by Caroline Kepnes that they could lend? I'm trying to save dollas where I can (cause moving ain't cheap). I'd be happy to lend out books that I have available.
What are you reading?
