Summer Reading Competiton!

So my awesome friend Aneeqah from My Not So Real Life emailed me recently and asked if I wanted to do a reading competition over the summer. I said yes immediately. I'm super competitive and I want to read a lot this summer so I knew this would be the perfect push to get me to read faster.

         Here are the rules even though they're really more like guidelines*:
  • It's called The Reading Games (get it?) and there will be an awesome button up soon.
  • It starts today June 23rd and end the same day in August
  • There will be updates every Saturday with the books we read that week, how many pages they were and if we put reviews up for them links to the posts.
  • Loser buys winner a book of their choice (unless the loser thinks that book is horrible and persuades the winner to get something else).
  • We will both have a Goodreads shelf to keep up with the books we read.
Sounds fun right? I'm super excited!

Some books I'm planning on reading are:
The Iron King by Julie Kagawa
The Finishing of Lady Amelia by Scarlett Rains
Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout
The Fairytale Keeper: Avenging the Queen by Andrea Cefalo
As You Wish by Jackson Pearce
Freak by E. K. Henry
Pure by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Beautifully Broken by Sherry Soule
Rift by Andrea Cremer
In Honor by Jessi Kirby

 Those are just the next 10 books I want to read this summer. I actually have two big to-read stacks that I want to read before school starts. If you've read any of these books be sure to let me know what you thought and keep an eye out for reviews.

I just want you to know that me and Aneeqah really do like each other. Even though there will probably be a lot of snide comments on how I'm going to beat Aneeqah's but on Twitter and the weekly wrap up posts she's one of my best blogging friends.


I hope you all have an awesome summer and check out my weekly wrap up post a week from today. And to Aneeqah: May the odds be ever in you favor ;)
