Another wonderful blogger named Amanda is back with her 2nd annual Summer Reading Challenge, which of course I had to sign up for right away! It's a very "liberal" challenge, that allows the blogger to choose to read whatever he or she wishes, making it very easy to read us of some of the hundreds of books in our TBR piles. I urge you to check it out!
For my choices, I focused on YA/Juvenile books I've been meaning to read, which are incredibly important in my profession. I love to read these books and I really do need to stay up on them in order to be good at my job, but they often fall behind in comparison to my beloved Christian fiction and regular old adult fiction. This challenge will at least get me caught up on 12, if not 14. Wish me luck and be sure to check out Amanda's challenge!
