30 Day Book Challenge | August 2021

Once again, I am setting myself the task of completing the 30 Day Book Challenge. Not only because I love a good 30 day challenge, but because in August I’m having a no-spend month.  And I have a ton of unread books still sitting on my shelf and Kindle.

The aim of the challenge is simple: read 30 books in 30 days. However, in the past two attempts in May 2021 and October 2020, I only managed between 14-18 books.

Since I’ve been in a reading slump over July – only reading 3 books! – I thought that 14-18 sounded pretty good.

Without further ado, to the fun part. Here are the 30 books I plan to read in the 30 Day Book Challenge.
