August 2016 Book Challenge

Every August I participate in the Mega Month Challenge on Goodreads in the YA Buddy Readers’ Corner group. This year, from August 1st-31st, there is a Page Count Challenge, a Spelling Bee Challenge, and two more challenges including Hangman, and a Non-Reading Challenge.

Here I will track and play two of these games and you can play along with me, even if you’re not on Goodreads or aren’t in the YA Buddy Readers’ Corner group! Page Count Challenge and Spelling Bee Challenge. If you decide to play along, leave a comment below to your blog post and/or Goodreads post with your progress tracker!

Page Count Challenge

This is a good ol’ fashioned page count, read as much as you can!

Spelling Bee Challenge

Read books that spell out “MEGA MONTH CHALLENGE.” For example, if you read Harry Potter And The Cursed Child you have fulfilled an “H”! You can use other language translations also. Graphic novels do not count, unfortunately.
