30 Day Book Challenge

After vowing not to participate in any book challenges for this year due to university work, I have finally caved and want to participate in one. It is called the 30 Day Book Challenge, in which you attempt to read a book a day. Since I would find this virtually impossible unless all the books I read were super short, various other YouTubers have suggested reading 200 pages a day, over the course of 30 days, which I have decided upon doing, seeing as though the majority of the books I've chosen are longer than 200 pages. The books I am attempting to read are:

1.   The Queen’s Fool by Philippa Gregory – 400 pages
2.   Letters From Home by Kristina McMorris – 384 pages
3.   Dare You To by Katie McGarry – 352 pages
4.   My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece by Annabel Pitcher – 221 pages
5.   Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers – 484 pages
6.   Emerald by Karen Wallace – 288 pages
7.   The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd – 375 pages
8.   Ill Wind by Rachel Caine – 414 pages
9.   Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy – 384 pages (e-book)
10.                Kissed By An Angel by Elizabeth Chandler – 698 pages
11.                Vampirates: Demons of the Ocean by Justin Somper – 298 pages
12.                Prophecy of the Most Beautiful by Diantha Jones – 268 pages
13.                The Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink – 352 pages (hardback)
14.                The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter – 293 pages (e-book)
15.                Immortal City by Scott Speer – 406 pages
16.                The Tide Knot by Helen Dunmore – 336 pages

17.                Petals in the Ashes by Mary Hooper – 192 pages

The Grand total of pages comes to 6145 pages. It will be a miracle if I manage to finish all these books within this time period, but since I have finished university for good, I might as well try it out as it gives me something to do. I will leave a link to the YouTube channel of Nerd in Translation below, who came up with the challenge, and good luck to everyone who's doing it! Happy reading.
