I know I made a post not too long ago talking about challenge fatigue and about how I debating whether or not to continue with my challenges because I was struggling to keep up with the administrative aspects of challenges. The Summer TBR Wipeout Challenge, hosted by The Candid Cover, however, is actually a challenge that I really enjoy. It is designed so that there’s more focus on reading and less focus on the administrative side. It’s win-win in that sense and so I love it!
Last year when I did this challenge, I was able to knock 12 books off my TBR, so I’m hoping to read 1 or 2 more this time around. Below is the schedule for the challenge, along with the list of books I’m hoping to read. It’s a mix of books that have been on my TBR for years, some ARCs that I want to get read for July and August, as well as a couple of 2018 releases that I’ve been meaning to get to and keep setting aside. I started A Feast for Crows this weekend since it’s over 1,000 pages and probably the most challenging book on my list, and it’s also the one I’m least confident I’ll finish in time. I managed to read over 200 pages on July 1 though, so we’ll see how it goes. 🙂
