We’re one week into the massive Summer TBR Wipeout and it’s time for an update. My goal this summer is to read 10 books from my TBR, which is literally overflowing from my bookshelves. And in true Amber fashion, I’ve managed to read books on my Kindle instead. Gah.
At the beginning of challenge I finished up The Wrath and the Dawn, meaning my first read for the Summer TBR Wipeout was a massive disappointment. Honestly. I have no idea why this book has such a huge fanbase (I’m not shading you if you love it! I just don’t get it) because I thought it was a load of crap. I might read the sequel though because why not?
Thankfully, my second read was a lot better. I read Far From the Tree, which is coming out in October. I downloaded it from Edelweiss the other day and I was too excited about it to wait any longer before picking it up. Far From the Tree is about three siblings who were given up by their mother and either adopted separately or put in a foster home. It was really freaking emotional.
Next I read Hello, Sunshine, which is about a young woman who didn’t get into college, and so she follows her dream of moving to Los Angeles to become an actress. She struggles for money, she makes friends, she meets a few weirdos, and she struggles to break into the industry. It was really good. Not great or amazing, but if you’re looking for a fun and fluffy read, this is one for you.
On Thursday I started reading a highly anticipated release – There’s Someone Inside Your House! Perkins announced that she was writing this book years ago and I’ve been dying to read it. I requested a copy from NetGalley, and they delivered! I’m really enjoying it so far, although there’s a little too much focus on the romance for me. I’m loving the slasher/Scream movie vibe though. I’m going to finish this one shortly and then start with my next one.
As you can see, I’m doing quite well with this challenge so far! I’ve read one book from my physical TBR, and three books from my enormous review copy backlog. I can’t wait to see what progress I make next week! I think I’m going to try to read more from my physical TBR pile, but it depends on what I’m in the mood for.
How are you guys doing with the challenge?
