Summer Vacation Reading Challenge
Summer's here! Time to join in on Molly's Summer Vacation Reading Challenge. I'm choosing the Globe Trotter option:
Globe Trotter: You will commit to reading 6 pre-selected books during this time frame, but you may substitute up to 3 books due to changes in travel plans. Cross-overs for 5 out of the 6 books are allowed, but ideally one book will be read for this challenge alone.
Since summer is supposed to be full of lazy bliss (unknown here in this household), I'm choosing the books on my TBR List that I feel will be light, fun getaway kind of reads:
1. Anne of the Island by L.M. Montgomery (Prince Edwards Island, Canada)
2. Anne of Windy Poplars by L.M. Montgomery (Prince Edwards Island, Canada)
3. Extras by Scott Westerfeld (Future?)
4. The Beekeeper's Apprentice by Laurie R. King (Wales)
5. Queens Own Fool by Jane Yolen (Scotland)
6. The Scarlet Pimpernel or The Courts of Love by Jean Plaidy (France)
We'll see if any of my "travel plans" change. It was hard to choose. Enjoy your summer, everyone!
