Reading Envy 120: Summer Reading - Challenges, My List, and Speed Dating.

I decided to record a bonus episode. Inside I'll talk about the Reading Envy Summer Reading Challenges, and give you some suggestions of books for those. I'll talk about books in a few categories for more general summer reading, a list if you will, and then move into the third round of book speed dating for 2018. Some of the books mentioned are backlisted titles, while others might not come out until June 2018, or in one tiny case, August.
