2018 Summer Reading Recap

Now that autumn has officially arrived, it’s time to reevaluate those summer reading lists! Overall, I think mine was a success, though a few titles remain unread this year...
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series by Ann Brashares
STATUS: Completed!
As planned, I revisited the first four books in this series

The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling
STATUS: In progress.
I like this one, but progress is slow because each story takes me a while to read, and there aren’t many good places to pause, so I have to read the whole thing at once or forget what’s happened. Oops.

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
STATUS: Incomplete.
I didn’t even start this one.

Rulers & Mages by Daley Downing
STATUS: Completed!
I read this one, along with the third book in the series.

This Is What Happy Looks Like and Happy Again by Jennifer E. Smith
STATUS: Completed!
More summery books!

Beaumont &Beasley series by Kyle Robert Shultz
STATUS: Completed!
I reread the first three books in the series, which were the original ones I had on the reading list, and also finished some of the side stories, two of the newer novellas, and the spinoff book, Horseman.

Crowning Heaven by Emily Hayse
STATUS: Completed!
A nice break from more summery book settings.

Saving Beauty by Elizabeth D. Marie
STATUS: Completed!
I also read the second and third books in this series.

Sentinel by Jamie Foley
STATUS: Completed!
I read Sentinel and a companion novella, but I haven’t started the rest of the series yet.

Everywhere You Want to Be by Christina June
STATUS: Incomplete.
As with Gatsby, I didn’t start this one. (I still need to get a copy of it, actually...)

The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
STATUS: Incomplete.
As much as I talk about these books, I honestly thought I would have gotten this series checked off the list again. Oops. (There’s always fall and winter reading lists, right?)
