So, what seems like a crazily long time ago, I started looking for a summer reading challenge. I’d seen some that looked really fun, but all the ones I found had already started or had too many categories (I’m painfully aware I basically started it in August). So I thought: why not do one myself?
Some brilliant accounts also did the challenge, and I’ll link how they did at the bottom. Make sure to check them out 🙂
Surprisingly, I managed to do eight out of nine categories. My plan had been to borrow ‘Dune’ by Frank Herbert from my Dad (there’s a reason it was in the classics category), and then the library, but there’s been a delay because, you know, pandemic. It’s officially October now, and I can’t really pretend it’s still summer as I sit typing in two hoodies. Sadly. So, here’s how I got on!
Some of these I loved (I think Harrow the Ninth is one of my all time favourites). Others… not so much.
