The Jungle VIP: August Book Challenge

It's going to get a little wild on my blog this month as I'm going to be reading The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling!

As you may already know, each month I set myself a challenge to read the works of the writer displayed on my Waterstones Literary Calendar. This month we have the wonderful Rudyard Kipling.

I'm really excited to be reading another children's book as the book I read to kick start the challenge in January was Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. It was great to revisit a childhood favourite of mine as an adult, and hopefully I'll feel the same when I read The Jungle Book this month.

I really like the Vintage Classics children's books as they always seem to have beautifully illustrated covers. I spent some of my well-earned Waterstones points on this purchase, so it didn't even cost me anything, which was a lovely surprise!

Alongside The Jungle Book, I'm planning to read The Humans by Matt Haig, Solitaire by Alice Oseman (who I had the pleasure of meeting this week!) and another horror/thriller for a GeekTown review. What are you planning on reading this month?

  1. Ahh I've never read this. I love the cover. What a great challenge to do! I read The Humans last year but I really didn't like it that much. I think I'm in the minority though, everyone else seems to rave about it!

    1. I'm enjoying it so far, but I'm only 50 pages in. Really looking forward to reading Jungle Book! :) x
