Beat the Heat Readathon

I'm about to complete my last day of my summer job, so I'm excited to begin my first Readathon! I have very humble goals for this blog for the upcoming school year because I know how caught up in college I get, so my goal for the remainder of the summer is to schedule a review post for every week through next June.

  3. I have The Moon and More on my readathon list as well! I just love Dessen's books and I haven't read one in a while so I hope her newest is a good one.

    Happy reading, hope you are able to make it through that pile. :)

  5. I haven't had the opportunity to read a lot of Sarah Dessen books, so I'll be interested to hear what you think about it. Ten Tiny Breaths sounds really good as well.

    1. I'll have to let you know then because I haven't read one in a while. I've just started Ten Tiny Breaths as well! I glanced at Goodreads and it gets really great reviews so now I'm afraid I have too high of expectations.

  7. Sarah Dessen. I was on the hold list for it at the library until the new library opened and I was able to check it out. I'm excited to read. Might be a vacation read.
