72 days, 78 books – My Favorite Book-A-Day Titles

With October right around the corner, summer seems like but a memory, but there are still a few book titles lingering with me from my time spent reading during my kids’ summer vacation. This summer was my second time participating in the Book-A-Day event. I didn’t get to all of the titles I mentioned in my kick-off post, but I blame a bunch of other new titles that cut in line! Needless to say, with 78 books, I did indeed read a lot of great books. Mind you, 78 books sounds impressive, but close to 2/3 were picture books.

  • Picture Books: 53
  • Easy Readers: 2
  • Middle Grade Novels/Chapter Books: 17
  • Graphic Novels: 3
  • Young Adult Novels: 2
  • Adult Biographies: 1

Seventy-two days, seventy-eight books. Here are some of my favorite reads of the summer! Click on the images to get a synopsis of the title at Goodreads.
