Emma’s May Reading Challenge

With BEA at the end of the month, I am trying to hammer out as many books as possible before the big convention so I can take a week or two to read whatever I want once I get those shiny, shiny ARCs.

To that end, I am hoping to read as many of the books below as humanly possible before May 29. (And since I like tracking such things, I’ll be updating this post throughout the month too as I mark my progress!)

The books:

  1. The Night She Disappeared by April Henry
  2. Where Things Come Back by John Corey Whaley
  3. Shift by Jennifer Bradbury
  4. The Space Between Trees by Katie Williams
  5. Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone by Kat Rosenfeld
  6. Exquisite Captive by Heather Demetrios
  7. Landline by Rainbow Rowell
  8. The One by Kiera Cass
  9. A Breath of Frost by Alyxandra Harvey
  10. Open Road Summer by Emery Lord

Now that is a lot of books but I’m hope since most are under 300 pages and I’ve already knocked one off. We’ll see how this goes!

Do you have any reading your hoping to knock out before the month is out?

May 9 update: I’ve read three books and added Open Road Summer in a fit of hubris.

May 14 Update: 4 books down and onto my fifth which is Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone. Feeling really good about my pace so far!

May 18 Update: 5 down. Starting Landline.

May 20 Update: Finished Landline! 6 books down. Starting Open Road Summer because all the cool kids are reading it.

May 23: Started A Breath of Frost aka book 7!

May 27: Finished my 8th book–A Breath of Frost. Because the other books were not in my house when I was ready to start a new one, my next (and final) May book is The Fault in Our Stars which I had been putting off so it was probably just as well that this forced my hand.

8/10 isn’t so bad.
