My Rating: 4.5 out of 5  

It's time for another round of Reading Challenge! This summer's Reading Challenge was so fun and a great way to motivate me back into reading. But since the challenge ended July 31st, I admit that I have only read one book. It was a great book--one of the best I've read so far. Every Day by David Levithan was such a beautiful story. I couldn't put it down. The book is about a teenager who wakes up in a different body every day and lives a different life. It really makes you look small things that you take for granted--the relationships we have (family, friends, community), the social values and prejudices we experience, how we define ourselves as individuals--and consider them in a new light. It's a great read and I highly recommend it!

I finished that book at the beginning of August. It's now November and I haven't read a thing since. So, I have decided to do a Fall/Winter Reading Challenge to overcome my literary laziness this holiday season. The first book I have selected is one that's been on my "to read" list for a while. It's called The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I started reading it last week and it is proving to be a good read so far. My last Reading Challenge was a bit ambitious (10 books in two months). I'm not going to go that crazy this time around. I plan on finishing 6 books in two months, which would put my deadline around January 5th.

CHALLENGE: Read 6 books in two months (November and December)
DEADLINE: January 5th, 2014
BOOK #1: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Like last time, I invite you to create your own reading challenge if you'd like. Pick a book (or quantity of books) and a deadline. Maybe a goal that works for you is to read one book per month. You could also just read a book that you started a while ago but never finished. Do whatever works for you. Feel free to share your reads or reading suggestions on Facebook or Twitter (@KeishaLBrown)! In any case, I hope that you have been inspired to pick up a good book today. Happy reading!
