As summer comes to a close and I have to pack away my dresses and pull out the sweaters I figured it would be a good time to wrap up The Goodreads Summer Reading Challenge. I’m very pleased by the amount of books I read and the range in genres that I explored and would definitely recommend the challenge.
I wasnt sure if I should delete the completed prompts from the check in but I decided to simply change the text color to blue.
Good as gold: Read a book that won a Goodreads Choice Award.
The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah
The book is better: Read a book being adapted for TV or film this year.
I wasn’t able to squeeze a book in here as well, I just lost a lot of interest in the book adaptations coming out so I didn’t try to force one in.
