I was thinking that it’s about time that I write an update for the Semi-Charmed Summer Book Challenge. I’ve only read two books for the challenge so far.
5 points: Freebie! Read any book that is at least 200 pages long.
The Starter House, by Sonja Condit (400 pages). This book is about a pregnant couple that moves into a haunted house. While the premise sounds scary, it has more of a subtle creepiness. My review on the novel is here.
15 points: Read a book that is on The New York Times‘ Best Sellers List when you begin reading it.
Reconstructing Amelia, by Kimberly McCreight (400 pages) – Currently #13 on Combined Print & E-Book and #8 on E-Book Fiction. This is about a lawyer named Kate who starts to investigate the circumstances surrounding her daughter’s death after she apparently jumped off a roof while at school. My review is here.
Total for May: 20 points
