My 40 Book Challenge

One of the best parts of summer break is that I have more time to partake in one of my favorite activities – READING! This past year school year, I set the goal of finishing forty young adult novels. I’ll be honest, I was not anywhere close to reaching that target. As the 2016-2017 school year came to an end, I found myself having only finished seventeen books. I do not turn down my nose at seventeen books. I cheer for seventeen books as it was fifteen more than I read the year before!

With much excitement, I am starting my 40 Book Challenge TODAY! Here is to twelve months of turning pages and falling into worlds I have yet to experience. I cannot wait!


If you are like me and always on the lookout for a new book, I recommend checking out the following google doc with countless book recommendations from the 2016-2017 students and teachers. At the bottom of the document, you’ll find a few of my favorite places I visit when looking for new novels.
