Happy Tuesday! Today’s theme for Top Ten Tuesday is my summer reading list for 2023. When I was a kid, our local public library in Rockford, Illinois, had a stellar summer reading program. Instead of just giving us points/rewards for the number of books read, we had to read a certain amount of different types of books – like, Newbery Award winners, Caldecott winners, biographies, mysteries, plays, poems, etc. I was exposed to so many book genres and authors this way and found that I loved a lot of them. I’ve never forgotten it, in fact, and so I’m modeling my post today after that format. These are all books I’m scheduled to read & review through the end of August, not for any specific challenges, but if you are doing a reading challenge this summer maybe some of these categories will inspire you!

What about you? What books on my summer reading list do you want to read too? Which category are you most interested in? Did you have a library summer reading program as a kid – did it have special categories or just by total books read?
