My randomly generated SummySeries

Welcome to the 11th year of SummySeries, my totally made up summer reading challenge that helps me make it through the awfulness of heat and humidity. I try to pick a theme each year, to keep it fun and this year, it’s:

Randomly Generated!

I have 1,394 books on my TBR-list. It’s past the point of ridiculousness. This summer, I’ll let a random number generator select my reads, one at a time, so I’m constantly surprised.

A few caveats:

If I select something like Moby Dick, I’m picking again. It takes me a long time to get through classics, which defeats the purpose of SummySeries: reading all the books, all the time.

If I select a series, I may pick again. If it’s 2 or 3 books, no big deal, but if it’s a set of dozens of cozy mysteries, that’s not feasible in a few months.

If it’s an upcoming book, I obviously can’t read it unless I learn time-travel. It’ll be easier just to pick again.

Or will it???

The rules:

I either read it or delete it. I add anything that sounds interesting at the moment, but if it’s no longer appealing, it’s gone.

Otherwise, the only real rule of SummySeries is to stay inside with the a/c and read a lot.

My first number is 1100


THE TIGER by John Vaillant

Non-fiction about the hunt for a man-eating tiger in a remote Russian village.

Hmm…am I being haunted by Tolstoy’s ghost?

I’ll post an update in a few weeks about how it’s going. And if I’m feeling extra ambitious at the end of the summer, I’ll post a breakdown of the genres, etc. Because I am a nerd.

Let SummySeries 2021 begin!

I write YA contemporary filled w/ romance, angst & family drama. Things I like: cats, snacks, baseball, green tea, taking pictures of trees & movies so bad, they’re good.
