Summer Beach Reads Challenge

BWS tips button

Jessica at A Fanatic Book Blog is hosting a nice summer challenge for light, beachy reads, as interpreted by readers, so basically whatever you usually like to read for fun in the sun. For me, that's mostly young adult and paranormal romance, since neither are generally dark or difficult reads, therefore perfect for using to avoid the sun :D
The categories are as follow:
* Tadpole - Read 4 books in this challenge.
* Minnow - Read 8 books in this challenge.
* Dolphin - Read 12 books in this challenge.
* Shark - Read 16+ books in this challenge!
Since I have absolutely no life, I've decided to go with the Shark. Well, also because it sounds cooler, and who doesn't want to sound cool? Why walk around saying, "I'm a Minnow," when you could be saying, "I'm a shark. Rawr." Really. No one wants to be a tadpole, or a minnow. I'm sure some people like dolphins, but me, I'm a shark. And a dork, which happens to be part of a whale, which should so have been a level for this.

Well, on with my choices!

1. My Soul to Take by Rachel Vincent
2. Shadowland by Alyson Noel
3. Rogue by Rachel Vincent
4. Pride by Rachel Vincent
5. Prey by Rachel Vincent
6. Shift by Rachel Vincent
7. Bloody Good by Georgia Evans
8. Hunting Ground by Patricia Briggs
9. Magic Strikes by Ilona Andrews (So what if it's a bit dark?)
10. The Glass Dragon by Irene Radford (A nice fantasy re-read.)
11. What's A Ghoul to Do by Victoria Laurie
12. Nightingale's Lament by Simon R. Green (Dark, but short.)
13. Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (Hey, I have to have something that makes me look smart!)
14. Silver Borne by Patricia Briggs
15. Dead Is the New Black by Marlene Perez
16. Bitten & Smitten by Michelle Rowen

I'll add links to the reviews when they go up.

Alternatives:

1. Alpha by Rachel Vincent (If I can get it in time.)

Here's to reading as an excuse to avoid the beach! That's what Southern California's for, right? Right.
