Pop Sugar's 2015 Reading Challenge - July 2015 Update

1. A book written by someone under 30

    - Frankenstein by Mary Shelley


2. A popular author's first book

    - Making Waves (Lake Manawa #1) by Lorna Seilstad (I am assuming "popular" is subjective, as in the inspirational/Christian fiction subgenre, Seilstad's books are popular)


3. A book with bad reviews

   - Out of Control (Kincaid Brothers #1) by Mary Connealy (3.6 rating on NOOK store, 3.7 Good Reads, 3.6 on Amazon). While the ratings on this book seem average, reading the reviews shows a polarity between 5 star gushing and 1-2 star rants. I agree with the rants.


4. A book based on or turned into a tv show:

    - Call the Midwife by Jennifer Worth

    - Call the Midwife: Shadows of the Workhouse

    - Call the Midwife: Farewell to the East End


5. A book you were supposed to read in school but did not:

   - Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck. It seems everyone else but me read this book (among many other works) in school/university. Good start to my reading list of Steinbeck's books.


6. A trilogy

   - Ruined by a Rake (All's Fair in Love #1) by Erin Knightley

   - Scandalized by a Scoundrel (All's Fair in Love #2) by Erin Knightley

   - Deceived by a Duke (All's Fair in Love #3) by Erin Knightly
