My Seasonal TBR Challenge Choices: June Tasks

Seasonal TBR Challengev2

If you haven’t already seen it, I’ve created a Seasonal TBR Challenge for summer! Basically it’s different fun little tasks to try to identify books that are already on your TBR and read them this summer. Once you read them, you can post about it and the reader with the most points from completing the tasks wins a prize! It’s just a little fun and not necessarily meant to grow that TBR any larger than it already is, but it’s also a good opportunity to see what other books people are going to read that match the tasks.

So what books have I chosen to work towards this summer with the June tasks?

5.1 Summer Heat. The sun is definitely here and that means raising temperatures! Read a book with one of the following words in the title: hot, scorch, heat, warm, sun, blaze, hazy, or any other similar variations.

For this task, I plan on reading:

White Hot Kiss by Jennifer L. Armentrout. This is a book that I know other reading friends have really enjoyed, it’s the first in a season, and I’m curious about it. I have only read one Armentrout book and liked it so I’d like to think perhaps I’d enjoy this one too.

atlantia5.2 Summer Vacation to the Water. I hope you all are able to go on a vacation this summer, but let’s make sure we go on one to the water! Read a book that has a cover with a beach, river, lake, or pond on it or has the word beach, vacation, holiday, or other related words in the title.

For this task, I plan on reading:

Atlantia by Ally Condie.. It may not be exactly a lake or a pond, but it’s got a seashell and clearly some body of water on the cover so I think that counts.

5.3 Warning, Contents are Hot! Read a book with a cover that is predominately made up of hot colors (red, orange, yellow).

For this task, I plan on reading:

Talon by Julie Kagawa. It’s a mostly red cover and has been on my shelf for a few months. And who can say no to a dragon story?

talon10.1 Hurricane Season. June is the beginning of hurricane season, which can definitely dampen vacation plans! Each year, the National Weather Service’s National Hurricane Center releases the names that will be used for each hurricane. Read a book whose author has a name on the 2015 list.

For this task, I plan on reading: The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen. The sequel is going around right now and I hate feeling like I already missed the boat so I’d like to read the first in the series.

10.2 Anniversary of D-Day. On June 6, 1944, the invasion of Europe, known as D-Day began. Read a book with a title beginning with the letter ‘d’, or has a plot that centers on an invasion.

For this task, I plan on reading:

The Dyerville Tales by M.P. Kozlowsky is a book I got about the same time as Talon and would love to read it and I think shakes things up a bit in terms of my summer reading list.

10.3 Summer Reading List. School summer reading lists were never all that fun, but the internet is full of different lists recommending different reads for summer. Read a book that is featured on a summer reading list and share the link to the list.

For this task, I plan on reading:

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins has been a book with a lot of buzz and I’m all about reading it. I found it on one of the lists I offered as an example on the original task, the EveryGirl’s list, and their pick for a beach read.

So I think that’s some good books that match up with the tasks. Some are books that I already own and wanted to read anyways, others are books that I’m aware of and may have been moving a little slowly towards.

What are your picks? Have you signed up yet? Definitely sign up at the original post and share the challenge with others!

    Yay for summer challenge! I have to say Atlantia was a little too slow for me, but I hope you enjoy it!! :)

      Yeah, I’ve heard some mixed reviews about it, but I figure it made on a shelf on Goodreads at one point for me perhaps I’ll experiment with it!
