"Get Hooked On Books!" #VASRP : 2016

The lovely Octavia from Read.Sleep.Repeat and Valerie from He Said Books Or Me have created a Virtual Adult Summer Reading Program! Now I don't know about you, but I used to love the summer reading programs my library hosted, sadly they don't do these for adults. But now we have this program that will allow us to interact with people from all over and talk about books on many different platforms.

Here's How It Works

Between now (the first day of Summer) June 20th thru September 5th 2016, we encourage you to read as many books as you can. These can be books you have been meaning to read, or you can now select one of the lists that we created below based on your interest. The most important thing in all of it is to have fun reading!
We have picked the theme “Get Hooked On Books” for Summer 2016. To that end, the levels that you will be reading are based off that theme. Your level will be calculated at the end of the summer and based off that you will be eligible to win awesome prizes! In order to win the prizes at the end of summer, you must sign up using the linky below and provide us with your status during our monthly posts in July, August, and September.
Guppy Read 1 to 5 books
Minnow Read 6 to 10 books
Fishing Jig Read 11 to 16 books
Spin Bait Read 17 to 24 books
Book Worm (ha get it!) Read 25 or more books
To help you out with this I created a few pdf list to draw inspiration from!
Fantasy ListContemporary List (thanks Shelly!)
Sci-Fi ListSequel Take DownBut you don’t have to stick to these! Make a graphic novel list! Or middle grade! Make a potpourri one that’s a mix of them!
And don’t forget to keep your eyes open for the mini challenges each week and monthly twitter chats…WITH PRIZES, thanks to some awesome publishers!
Leave your questions in the comments below, and help us spread the word by using the #VASRP hastag!

My Goals

1. Reach Book Worm level Status 
2. Try and read more fun books and not so many darker books
3. Talk to other people doing the challenge as well using the #VASRP 

I will also be making monthly updates for this challenge as well, with how many books I have read each month and then on September 5th I will also post a master list of all the books read for the challenge. Are you joining this challenge? If so please leave me your twitter below so I can follow you and see your progress as well!
