38?? Yeah, I know I am crazy! But I also know I will be very lucky to read about 20 of these books. I'd love to read this many books over the summer because that will get me much closer to my goal for the year.
This list is subject to change but I am going to try very hard to stick to this list and not add anymore. (Yeah, right!)

Books added after I created my original list:
-Shooting the Moon by Frances O'Roark Dowell
-Bronte's Book Club by Kristiana Gregory
-Sunflower Houses by Sharon Lovejoy
-Faith, Hope and Charity by Janet Peterson and LaRene Gaunt
-The Underneath by Kathi Appelt
-Skeletons at the Feast by Chris Bohjalian

Great list! You've included lots of books that I've read and loved and also many that I want to read, too! I can't wait to see how it goes for you.

Lots of books ;) I have decided not to join the Summer Reading Challenge. I have too much going on. I am def. doing the Fall one though. :)

Ooh, I see you've got Michelle Magorian on your list. Her 'Back Home' is my #1 favorite book of all time. I highly, highly suggest you check that one out, I promise you won't be disappointed. 'Goodnight, Mr. Tom' is also good, but in a different way. Happy summer reading!
