Literary Ladies Reading Challenge Check-in

Last week I mentioned that I'm taking part in a reading challenge. Today I'm revealing my list. The categories in bold are the ones I've read (only two so far) and I'll give my reviews on those in August's Show Us Your Books linkup.

  • A book by a non-US author - What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty (currently reading)
  • A book recommended by a blogger (or instagrammer/you-tuber/goodreads-er) - Dirty Rush by Taylor Bell, recommended by Christina
  • A book that has been on your TBR list for a year or more - Life After Life by Kate Atkinson
  • A book with a kickass female character - W is for Wasted by Sue Grafton - I've owned this book since it came out but for some reason still haven't read it. But since I know going in that Kinsey Millhone is one kickass woman, I knew this would qualify.
  • A book that is (or will be) a movie or TV show) - Divergent by Veronica Roth - I started this a while back, didn't get very far, and set it aside.
  • A book with a one-word title - You by Caroline Kepnes - This has been on just about every blogger's list of must-reads so I'm looking forward to it.


  1. oh i hope you liked saving francesca! i LOVED it.

  2. Lots of books I enjoyed on this list!

    I want Kinsey Milhone books to come out more often.

  3. I'm interested in what you thing of You, it's definitely different.

    I read A is for Alibi but didn't really enjoy it, do the books get better as the letters progress?

  4. Loveed, loved, loved Life After Life. Hope you do too.

    1. Case Histories is one of my favorite books so I have high expectations for Life After Life.

  5. I absolutely adored Saving Francesca...and there is a follow-up book called The Piper's Son which I loved as well.

  6. I loved Saving Francesca and You is one of my favorite books of the year! I enjoyed What Alice Forget and hate read Dirty Rush. I'm looking forward to seeing what you think of them (and the rest, too!)

  7. I have Saving Francesca, You, and The Summer I Turned Pretty on my list too! I hope you liked Dirty Rush!

  8. I'm also reading What Alice Forgot for my non US author.. what do you think so far?
