Summer Reading Challenge Results! (original)

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!

My Reviews

Some of these I loved (I think Harrow the Ninth is one of my all time favourites). Others… not so much.

The End of An Era: Death Sets Sail by Robin Stevens

The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris

Clap When You (Don’t) Land by Elizabeth Acedevo

Leah On the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli

Clary Fray is Not My Bae: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

Badass Bone Nuns: Harrow the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir

Notes From A Paper Plane Nomad

Published by Hundreds&Thousands

I’m a teenager (and Hufflepuff) from Manchester. I like oversized jumpers, music that isn't on the radio anymore, and books. Honestly, any books I can get my hands on but my personal favourites are fantasy, mystery or your classic teen romance (it’s ironic I know but you can’t really go wrong with 'Eleanor and Park'). And one day, I decided to try and share some of my opinions on some great – and not so great – books to people around the world. And here it is! I really enjoy it; I hope you do too. The aim is hundreds and thousands of books (see what I did there?) but I’m not quite up to that. Yet.
