Summer Book Trek Challenge

My friend posted this on Facebook and I thought it sounded like a lot of fun. New LDSFiction is hosting a challenge to read LDS authors during the month of July (you don’t have to be LDS to participate). They will be giving away prizes throughout the month as well. I was a little surprised by how many LDS authors were out there, I guess I never gave it too much thought. I was familiar with some, but surprised with others. I had come up with a list of about fifty books, but even I can’t read that fast. So, for now I’ve narrowed it down to thirty. I know there is no way I’ll be able to read thirty books next month with everything I have going on, but I just couldn’t narrow it down anymore.

  1. I LOVED Deep Cover, Lemon Tart, Wanted, I Spy, Turning Pages, and Rupunzel Untangled!

    Check out what book I want to read during July at

  2. I've read a lot of these, but didn't know others were LDS authors! I'll have to check some of these out. :)

  3. One more did you come up with your list? I'm just curious to see what others are out there that I haven't read. Thanks!!

    1. I never really pay attention if an author is LDS, so I was surprised by a lot of these as well. I have a couple friends on goodreads who have a "LDS author" shelf, I looked there for a lot of my choices. I also looked at the New LDS Fiction website. I found like 50 books, but had to narrow it down.

    2. Thanks!! I may have to try this. :) I'm guessing any book by any LDS author.

  4. If you read Lemon Tart, you're going to want to add all the rest of the series to your list! I just started reading The Orchard. So far, so good. :)


Thank you for taking the time to comment, I appreciate hearing from you!
