Re-Readathon & Shelf Sweeper Sign-Up Post

Hosted by Shae Has Left the Room & Beauty and the Bookshelf

There are so many books I'm excited to read this summer and I've already read a few from my Summer TBR list, but when I heard about this July event, I just knew it would be perfect for me! Summer seems like the perfect time for re-reading and/or dusting off the books I've been dying to read, but keep passing over for one reason or another (OK, the reason is usually review books, but those look so good too! What's a bookworm to do?!)

I'm not going to make an official list because what I most love about this event is the *excuse* it gives me to read whatever the heck I want. I am leaning more toward the Shelf Sweeper portion of this event and am thinking about FINALLY attempting A Game of Thrones while away on vacation. I also plan to read Gayle Forman's If I Stay for book club which has been sitting on my shelf FOREVER, sadly neglected. Other than that, I'm just going to wing it and if those ones don't work out, I will pick up something else instead. And yea, I'll probably sneak a review book or two in anyway -- I am in the middle of one right now after all -- but I'm excited to mix things up this month.

  1. Good luck! I think this will be a lot of fun. I love summer reading. Maybe if you read Game of Thrones it will give me the willpower to read them. We shall see. ;) I can't wait to see what you think of If I Stay!

    1. Thanks Kay -- it has been a lot of fun so far. I've pushed GoT to my fall reading list, but hope to motivate you then instead :) Really liked If I Stay -- really should review it soon!

    1. Thanks! I've bumped GoT to the fall -- all this beautiful weather has me reaching for shorter and lighter things, but I WILL get to it :)

  5. Good luck, this sounds like fun. I am not taking on any extra activities at the moment due to outside plans, but hope to dive back in this fall.
