How it works:
You do not have to run a book blog or a website for that matter. All that I ask is that you create your posts on some sort of social media website, such as Instagram, Facebook or Tumblr, etc. You can also read backlist books, ARCs, new releases, audiobooks, or anything else that has been beckoning you to read it. There will be 4 posts in total that you can link up to here on The Candid Cover.
My Reading Time Frame: July 8 – August 19, 2017
As I mentioned in my sign-up post, I used this challenge as a way to re-evaluate my reading progress mid-year. I left my sign-up post pretty general but now that I’m only a few days out, I thought I would update my reading list with the titles I plan to tackle.
My Plan & Selections:
No ARC requests!
I’m not picking up any more ARCs for the rest of the summer. I did get a little request happy in early June and do have some titles I need/should read in this time frame (a lot are sequels for previously reviewed series) but I hope to get a few out of the way before this one starts.
Finish (at least) 3 Series I’ve Previously Started
Read Sequels for (at least) 2 Previously Started Series
Read 1 Classic Novel
Binge Read 1 Series from start to end!
Do you have any priority reads for the summer?
I’ve signed up for this too and I’m thinking that I might use it to blitz through my leftover review copies. I’ve got quite a few that I just haven’t had time to get to so that might be an idea.
I love your idea of continuing or finishing series that you’ve started! I’ve got so many open series that I need to get around to.

I originally had the idea that I wouldn’t read any ARCs besides one I had committed to before I learned about the challenge but so many great opportunities came up so I couldn’t resist! But this is a great challenge to burn through those.
Despite my blog focusing almost exclusively on series, I can be rather terrible at reading sequels. I find challenges are great for that so I always make a point to include lots of sequels.
Good luck with your challenge!
Ohhh you’re going to binge read the Shatter Me series? I’m eager to see how that goes – I hope you’ll enjoy it, there are so many mixed reviews about this out there ahah 🙂
Good luck for the challenge! 😀

I’ve had Shatter Me on my list for years! I see it’s one of those series you either love or hate so I’m hoping I’m one of the former. It would be nice to read them all before the new ones come out!
Jane Eyre was the first classic I ever read so it’ll always be special to me. I hope you enjoy!
Also, I’m really looking forward to reading your thoughts on the Shatter Me, The Darkness Powers, and (I think it’s called) Entice series. I’ve started The Darkness Rising trilogy many, many years ago but never continued on with book two and three. And I’ve not read the other two series.
Anyhow, good luck!

I have one friend who loves Jane Eyre and always scolds me for not having read it yet 😛 I’m really looking forward to it.
I didn’t love The Darkness Rising series as much as The Darkest Powers (or at least that was my impression based on the first two books of TDR). I’m really excited to read Shatter Me, it’s been on my lists FOREVER!
