Summer Break Reading Challenge - Activity #4


As part of the Summer Break Reading Challenge Activity #4 I took part in a scavenger hunt across the blogosphere! It was a lot of fun, check out my answers.

1. A blog that is new to you that focuses on the same type of literature you do (ex: I read YA so the blog would need to focus on YA).

· http://withabook.blogspot.com/ - Great blog that focuses on YA

2. A book that is new to you that another blogger reviewed.

· Sea Change by Aimee Friedman (http://lafemmereaders.blogspot.com/)


3. A book set in Africa (in your preferred age category, if possible).

· Henning Mankell’s Eye of the Leopard. A great book I reviewed for Curled Up with a Good Book last year.


4. A book about a human/animal bond (in your preferred age category, if possible).

· Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater. I'm counting this as a human/animal bond. Is that okay? I think it is. I’m choosing to believe it is :).

5. A book trailer for a book you want to read.

· Hush, Hush – Becca Fitzpatrick

6. A book with a color in the title (in your preferred age category, if possible).

· Low Red Moon by Ivy Devlin. More information on it here.



7. A blog that is new to you that is dedicated to a certain genre

(ex: only books about vampires, only historical fiction, only urban fantasy, etc.)

· http://readingonthedarkside.blogspot.com/ - focuses on urban fantasy


8. A book blog maintained by a librarian.

· http://summerbreakreadingchallenge.blogspot.com – Yay, it’s Karin who runs the Summer Break Reading Challenge!


9. A book blog maintained by a teacher.

· http://kdkbooklove.blogspot.com/ - She’s actually a teacher AND librarian but I thought I wouldn’t cheat


10. The title of an upcoming book by an author you like (provide details - title, release date, synopsis).

· What Happened to Goodbye – Sarah Dessen. You can see the details of it here.
