10. A book about Summer - The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides (reread)

I've only got three (okay, more like 1 + 2/3 + 1/4)  more books to go!  It's funny because I never really realized how much I've read in the past month until I crossed it off just now!  I've got a little more than 100 pages to go on The Goldfinch (It's almost 800 pages long!) and then will be getting into The Virgin Suicides (a pretty easy read) and lastly, #Girlboss.

What about you?  How many books have you read so far?


  1. i'm not part of this challenge but i've been shitting the bed with books lately. this one book i was reading was SO GOOD and then in the 2nd half, got so boring so i put it down and have had trouble getting back into it since :(

  2. Only three mire to go!!! Whoo hoo! I want to read the Goldfinch. Cant wait to hear if you like it!

  3. the goldfinch has been sitting on my kindle for over a year too!!

  4. Get it girl! You're almost finished!

  5. Look at all these books you are crossing off!!! I keep reading everything NOT on my list. Oops!!! I am so behind.

  6. way to go girl! the goldfinch has been on my list forever, it's just so long and i have heard conflicting things haha. can't wait to hear what you think!

  7. Great job, girl!!!! So awesome! And only 100 pages left of Goldfinch, I'm very impressed! I only read 2 of the 10 books I chose LOL!

  8. I've only read one book this summer! I think it's because there haven't been any books that have really interested me.

  9. moloka'i was so long but I loved it. i usually don't dig historical fic but i really like stories set in the pacific. what's it like reading a book about the place where you're from? (obviously not the place place, but the place within the place) oahu's not that far from molokai, right? (sorry, hawaii virgin)
