  1. Looks like you had a terrific month! Congrats on finishing the Chunkster Challenge!

  2. You have this incredible way of organizing your reading!! I love it! Sounds like you had some good reads this month!

  3. That's a really good list too. I've read a lot of those books and hope you enjoy them.

  4. Lokks like you are doing better at your challenges than I am! I'm going to read Half of the Yellow Sun when my mum has finished she brought it for 20p (about 50 cents I think!) at a book stall the other day.

  5. Hi, I found you via the summer reading challenge. I am a great fan of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie too. Can I recommend that if you haven't read her first book PURPLE HIBISCUS, you might try that too?
