Literary Ladies Summer Book Challenge - August Check In

Alright, guys. As you probably know, I decided to join a summer reading challenge this summer. As you also probably know, I've had a very busy summer. So I've decided to make my own challenge for myself as a smaller sect of the original challenge.

The original Literary Ladies Summer Book Challenge had 10 books. I picked 10 books, one for each category, but I decided to shoot for only four of them. By my July check-in, I had only read one. Now, for my August check-in, i'm proud to say I've read three! That means I'll have no problem completing my personal challenge and may even exceed it! Woohoo! So let's check up on my progress, shall we?

So here's what I've read:
  • A book written by a comedian or celebrity: Someday, Someday, Maybe by Lauren Graham. (I'll review it on the blog soon)
  • A YA book (mandatory): The Fault in our Stars by John Green (Which I found out is actually a TEEN book, not YA. Oops)
  • Non US author (mandatory): Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl
Here's what I have left to read:
  • A book that was recommended by a blogger (mandatory): The Happy Wives Club by Fawn Weaver (recommended by Amberly)
  • A book that has been on your TBR list for a year or more: The Princess Bride by William Goldman
  • A book with a kick-butt female character: Dancing Through Life by Candace Cameron Bure. I changed this one because I ordered it from Amazon and now I'm very eager to read it. I think it fits this category, don't you?
  • A book that will be a movie (or TV show): The Astronaut Wives Club by Lily Koppel
  • A book with a one word title: Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand
  • A suspenseful book - a mystery, a thriller, a book about revenge: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
  • A book about Summer, with Summer in the title:  That Summer by Lauren WIllig
