“Real” Book Challenge June!


How is it July? We’re not sure how it can possibly be time for this month’s “Real” Book Challenge wrap-up post, but we are definitely excited to share our June books with all of you! How was your month? Did you read all the real books you wanted to read in June? Where are you in your Real Books goal? We can’t wait to see your posts! Here’s the list of “real” books that we read in June:


Wings The Young World Four: A Divergent Collection


Fall From India Place Nowhere But Here Through To You I Want It That Way

What do you think? Are those some good looking books? We think so! What did you read this month? Make sure you link up your monthly wrap-up in the linky below by the 10th of July and look for our newsletter in your inbox on the 15th. If you’re just seeing this challenge for the first time, you can sign up to join us here!



  1. I’m way done the maximum challenge…. 80 books! I enter every month’s page I can find, to continue playing along and win one of these! Could someone reply back? I’m not signing up for a newsletter but would appreciate winners being announced in these update posts. It’s essential info for me and a nice announcement to anyone who reads it. đŸ™‚ Thanks!

  2. I checked instructions for this challenge. Kassiah wondered on the May page, if subscribing to the newsletter marks eligibility for the prize draws. I’m thinking…. being a member of the READING CHALLENGE is the qualifier!?! The rules say “every book is an extra entry”. My 300-word reviews, for 80 books, should be giving me lots of entries. Please clarify that you do incorporate the books we list at our blogs? If my entries didn’t made it into the hat since January; this one’s gonna be heavy. {WICKED GRIN}

    • Carolyn- We go to whatever you link us to each month in the linky and count the books posted there. You get that number of entries. We also give a bonus entry to each person who subscribes to the newsletter. I will started adding the winner of the previous month to the next month’s wrap-up post. Thanks for the suggestion. Let us know if you have any other questions!

  3. Awesome! I was sure this is how we worked it but got psyched out. You answered everything Meg. đŸ™‚ I didn’t know about a bonus entry but I read enough for the average village. hehehe I’m glad to hear you’ve been drawing the way I thought; counting from our websites lists. It means I haven’t missed anything and can keep looking forward to the chance every month. *HUG!*
