Summer Reads List + NaNoWriMo update

Hello! Summer is just around the corner *just one more week of school YOU CAN DO IT KATIE* so I decided to compile my ultimate summer reads book list! I also have an update on my NaNoWriMo Challenge at the end of the post! I have been working really hard and doing well, but I don’t know how long it will last…

NaNoWriMo Update

I am proud to say that I am doing well so far on NaNoWriMo. I have written about 2100 words, which is two days ahead of schedule! I have finished my first chapter and am almost done with my second.

Even though it was a little bit out of my comfort zone, and even if I fail miserably and don’t finish it, I am glad I tried it. It’s a lot of hard work, but it’s fun and I am sure it will be rewarding in the end. (Right?)

Keep on booking,

  1. I definitely want to read most of the books on your list! I’ve already read The Hobbit, I Am Malala, and The Fault in Our Stars. I really enjoyed all of them, but as you might guess from a huge fan of Refugee, my favorite is I Am Malala. Have your tissues ready for Fault in Our Stars. It’s a real emotional rollercoaster, but brings a perspective that I feel better for understanding. Hmm, which book from your list should I start first?

    1. Dear MB,
      The Hobbit and I am Malala have been eagerly waiting on my bookshelf for weeks. I have heard that the Fault in Our Stars was a really good book so I fugured that I had to put it on there.
      I have absolutely no idea what book to start with with first. There are just so many good reads, y’know?

    1. Dear Annie,
      That’s reassuring! I have had I am Malala on my bookshelf for A LONG TIME and I have to get down to reading it. I am really excited to start reading A Fault in Our Stars and Fangirl, but what I really have to read (like right now) is Cinder. I not kidding when I say I have PATIENTLY *ok not patiently* waited to check out Cinder at the library. It was never there. #sadness

  2. Hi Katie spoiler alert… Eggs is very confusing bc in our group for social issues we(Me,Sabine,Lucy,Sophia and Shea) read it and it’s super confusing like there’s a person who’s name is Refrigerator John like who names their son that?! Also I am Malala is sooooooo good you should definitely read it first

    1. Dear Marie,
      I am DEFINITELY reading I am Malala first. I was pretty picky about the books I chose on my summer reads list but Eggs was one of the last books on my list. I mainly put it down because I wanted to have an even list of 20, but also because the synopsis sounded interesting. I may not even get to read it!
