I am a list person. I love nothing more than ticking something off. Whether it be highlighting something in a online document or physically ticking a box, I makes me feel immensely satisfied. So to satisfy my inner list freak I’ve set myself quite a lot of challenges this year. There is one, the LGBT challenge, I am officially participating in but there are dozen challenges I started at the begin of the year just for me. They are all challenges from blogs but I haven’t officially signed-up because I did not have a blog yet to sign-up with. I still, however, want to complete the challenges. Therefore I will be making a reading list for August here :).
First there are some general goals for August:
(1) I would like to read 10 books
(2) I would like to post 4 times a week here on Jirrine Reads Fiction
(3) I would like to finish a series
From top to bottom:
(1) Purple Hibiscus – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
This book is for an African Reading Challenge and qualifies as a book from an African author.
(2) Anna Dressed in Blood – Kendare Blake
(3) Girl of Nightmares – Kendare Blake
These two books will qualify for reading a series (or in this case duology).
(4) The Concubine of Shanghai – Hong Ying
This book is also a book for my Summer Reading Challenge, and also counts for an Historical Fiction challenge.
(5) Under the Dome – Stephen King
Book will count for my Summer Reading challange as well.
(6) The Owl Keeper – Christine Brodien-Jones
Counts for both Summer Reading and MG/YA Standalone challenge.
(7) Het Gulden Vlies van Thule – Thea Beckman
With this book I finish another series and it will count as one of the categories (book set in the future) for a montly challenge.
(8) The Passage – Justin Cronin
I own this book in Dutch but want to read it in English. This will count for a tbr challenge.
(9) Dead to the World – Charlaine Harris
This is book 5 in the Sookie Stackhouse series and qualifies as a book for the Sookie challenge.
(10) The Perks of Being a Wallflower – Stephen Chbosky
This book will qualify for the LGBT challenge I signed up for earlier this week.
Q: Have you read any of these?
