Book Challenge of the Month (July 2019)

Hello all! Another month, another reading challenge!

This month’s challenge brings with it a bit of nostalgia:

A book you were supposed to read in high school but didn’t.

My challenge book this month will be Lord of the Flies by William Golding. When I was in high school this book was on the assigned reading list but I never read it because I didn’t go to public school. I was homeschooled and my mom didn’t have the slightest clue what books were required for high schoolers at the time. She ended up getting a bunch of books from our neighbor who had just graduated high school and had me read those. I’ve always been curious about Lord of the Flies so now I’m going to tackle it.

My classic read for the month is Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. They talk about this book on the show Friends and I’m hoping to love it as much as Joey and Rachel.

My sequel book of the month is Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo. This book series is kind of a prequel/companion series to her duo Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom. The characters in this story are different but it’s the same universe. I enjoyed the duo and the first book in this series so I’m sure I’ll enjoy this one as well.

My for fun read is The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan. Originally published in 1989, and made into a movie in 1993, this book is about four mothers and their daughters who come together to talk about the things they encountered in their lives and how it connects them all. I’m excited to give this one a go.

Well there you have it! What will your challenge book be?

    Great choices – Lord of the Flies was something I’d heard a lot about but never got round to reading. Siege & Storm sounds like an intriguing book too. 🙂

    1. Thank you. I’ve been slacking on reading so hopefully all of these get read this month. Haha

        Also I know you’ll be super busy with your reading list already, but I’ve started republishing my first debut novel in weekly instalments if that might interest you, plus different short stories if you’d prefer some lighter reads.

      2. Yes! I was just saying to myself the other day I need to make some time to sit down and read your stuff.

        Thanks for always being such a supportive reader of my first few short stories too! It means the world when other bloggers leave such encouraging feedback & I’ve really gained confidence as a writer from your comments 😀

    Lord of the Flies was one of the only books I actually finished & enjoyed in High School! Hope you liked it if you’ve read it already!
