Seeking & Exploring: Summer Reading List

We wanting to start something for awhile. Something that we could do together that wasn't a challenge. We came up with Seeking & Exploring.

Seeking & Exploring is a new sort of challenge that has different set themes for us to do. Rather it be debut, fantasy, horror, series, etc. We go along with the themes and pick books to fit that theme. However, we are also picking books for each other. That way we are picking and exploring new reads.

A little more about S&E. Seeking means desire to achieve something. To us, it means reading a new book or series we been wanting to read, but never get a chance to. We all have books on our shelves that we never got to, but now we have a reason to. As for Exploring, it means traveling into unknown to discover something new. To us, this means trying a different genre/book/author and finding out if we like it or not. However, someone else will recommend it to us.

This summer since there is so much time off, we are starting off big. The theme for this Seeking & Exploring is series. For the Seeking part, we have series we been wanting to start but never did for many different reasons. And for the Exploring, we each recommended different series to each other. We picked series that we haven't reviewed yet so you guys can get a fresh point of view.

This S&E will run until the end of August.
