j-flamingo reflections

Inspired by the grace and beauty of the flamingo, my life reflected by my love of reading, writing and creating.

Revision of Summer Reading Thing

I think I signed up for this challenge in the wrong way so I'm just going to re-post with my LDS fiction list that I'm planning on reading this summer. This list is all LDS authors now. I'll go for reading these, at least, for the Summer Reading Thing. I'm planning on reading the other books from my previous list at some point but these are the ones I need to read and review in order to be eligible for the challenge.
  1. PickUp Games by Marcia Mickelson
  2. Lemon Tart by Josi Kilpack
  3. Fool Me Twice by Stephanie Black
  4. The Host by Stephenie Meyer
I'm new to these challenges but I'm hopeful to enjoy them. I can't go overboard as I would like to sometimes with reading & cool challenges. I also love book groups which I probably have too many to keep up with but I give a good effort as I can. I just have to pace myself as I'm a slow reader that savors and has to re-read sometimes. I think I'll speed up with practice. Most of all, I'm aiming to have fun reading this summer!

Summer Reading Thing

My friend, Marcia, signed up for this summer reading challenge and so I thought I would as well. I have a ton of books in my t0-be-read list so I'm going to pull from there. I may also switch it up a little as needed, since I start zealously with reading each summer but then it gets too busy sometimes by the end, which I think is alright for this challenge. I hope. Anyway, I love to read so here's my choices for this summer:

  1. PickUp Games by Marcia Mickelson
  2. Lemon Tart by Josi Kilpack
  3. Fool Me Twice by Stephanie Black
  4. Jane and the Unpleasantness at Scargrave Manor: Being the First Jane Austen Mystery by Stephanie Barron
  5. Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen by Syrie James
  6. The Host by Stephenie Meyer
  7. My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Piccoult
I think this will be a good list. Alternates will include but not limited to my choices from my other challenges currently listed on my side bar, from other book groups I'm already in, or books that may come out by the end of the summer that I may get excited about in a spontaneous moment. For now, this is my speculative list for this summer. I can't wait to get reading!

She is pure Alice in Wonderland, and her appearance and demeanor are a nicely judged mix of the Red Queen and a flamingo.
