Literary Ladies Book Club: The List

I was debating whether I should post this or not, but after finishing my first book I figured I might as well.  This is by no means an indicator that I'll actually complete the challenge, but it's nice to get back to reading after all the craziness of the past few months.

1. A YA book (mandatory!) - Silvern by Christina Farley [Read on 7/5/15]

2. Non US Author (mandatory!) - Three Daughters by Consuelo Saah Baehr

3. A book that was recommended by a blogger (mandatory!) - The Martian by Andy Weir recommended by Lisa

4. A book that has been on your TBR list for a year or more - The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt

5. A book with a kickass female character -

6. A book that is or will be a movie (or TV show) - The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

7. A book written by a comedian or celebrity

8. A book with a one word title -

9. A suspenseful book -

10. A book about Summer -

As you can see, my list isn't complete yet so I would love some suggestions or recommendations if you've got any!  I'll update as I go along.

What does your summer reading list look like? 


  1. I loved the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich for the kick ass female character. Yes, Please by Amy Pohler was a great one for the memoir. Might I recommend audio book for that one, as Amy herself reads it and it really adds something! I also recommend audiobook for The Martian.

  2. Glad to see you're joining in. I've enjoyed looking at everyone's lists - even if your isn't complete. I recommend either Stephen King or Mary Higgins Clark for the suspense category. I'm a big MHC fan and have read a lot of her stuff. It moves quickly and I like he style. I've never read King before but I'm choosing to read one of his books for that slot.

  3. I loved The Martian, hope you enjoy it! Have you read Bossypants or Yes Please? I enjoyed them. I'm currently reading Is Everybody Hanging Out Without Me? and it's pretty good.

  4. I loved reading is everyone hanging out without me, by Mindy Kaling, that could be your book by a comedian!

  5. YES to the Martian! And our next book club book is Perks of Being a Wallflower!!! As for the one word book, WONDER. Do it. I'm also joining this book club but will decide on books as I go along.
