Summer "Beach Reads" Challenge!

Welcome, peeps!

From July 1st to August 31st, a super-special Reading Challenge will be hosted by myself, Jessica at A Fanatic's Book Blog, Heather at A Bibliophile's Paradise and Linna at 21 Pages
-- my super-amazing affiliates.

You might be asking yourself what exactly will be a "beach read" for this Challenge, right? If so, Jessica has an answer to give you:
"A beach read by my definition is any book you'd choose to take with you to a day at the beach. Think something light, airy, perhaps a romance or two? It's really all up to you! Beach reads are what you make them! I've been known to take a vampire novel with me to the beach.... vampires and sand? Yes!".

Although we all are doing this together,
A Fanatic's Book Blog will be the main hostess blog during the whole Challenge. You will sign up your participation and your reviews there, but the authors interviews, guests posts, contests and giveaways are schedule to be going on each of our blogs. So keep your eye on them all (specially on Jessica's -- she will keep you updated on Sundays!).

  1. Nice challenge!
    If I weren't going to be completely busy these days I would get in!

  2. O difícil não é ler... é conseguir $ pra comprar tudo xD

  3. Renata, comprei no submarino 8 livros e gastei R$150, pra mim valeu, apesar de um pouco apertado. Mas concordo contigo.

    Raíla, acho q vou ficar no Minnow, pq como falei no twitter, mais q isso não rola agora.

  4. Ei, gente! Contanto que vocês participem (e eu acho que vai ser bem divertido!), eu já fico muito feliz e agradecida. Pra oficialmente entrar, é só fazer um post tipo esse dizendo que está participando e postar o link no blog da Jess. :) Obrigada!

  5. Pode participar mesmo lendo livros em português?

  6. Vou falar isso com as meninas ainda, mas, por mim, pode. Aliás, minha opinião tem que valer lá! Hahah. Não se preocupem com isso agora. Uma vez que tiver uma considerável quantidade de brasileiros participando, vou abrir um post em Português sobre.

  7. Então... Pode ser tudo em português sim. :) Vai ter chance pra todo mundo! SPREAD THE WORD.

  8. AAH Raíla! =(
