Summer Reading Challenge: Summer TBR Wipeout 2018 – Intro Post


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. 🙂

    Looks like fun! Not signing up because I’m already doing something else this summer. 🙂 I’ll probably be reading vicous this summer as well.

    So many good ones on your TBR! I really loved Letters to the Lost. And seeing Ruin & Rising reminds me that I need to get back to reading the Grisha trilogy! I plan on picking up The Raging Ones very soon. I have high hopes for it. Good luck with the challenge! 🙂

    Luckily I don’t have too many review books to get to, so I’m really trying to focus on books that I’ve had for awhile and just things that I own in general. I also plan to read Vicious – hopefully this month. And I just ordered The Mermaid so I want to read that soon.

    I gave up on doing challenges like this a long time ago. BUT, this one might be for me since this is what I’m already doing all year long. I could actually accomplish it. lol Good luck! You have some books that are on mine too.

    I love your TBR!! I am going to try and read the Shadow and Bone trilogy again this year. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on book 2. Thanks so much for joining this year. 🙂

    Good Luck on your challenge! I have The Shadow and Bone series on my TBR. I also bought Vicious and Children of Blood and Bone but haven’t gotten around to them yet. I hope to get to them before the end of the year.

    I recognize most of these! None of them’s on my list though 😛 Wish I could get Vicious. Good luck with the challenge! I’m curious as to what you think of some of these.
