Do you like piña coladas and getting caught in the rain… with a book in hand? Then this year’s BookSparks Summer Reading Challenge is for you. It’s our biggest and most diverse reading challenge yet. We’re headed to #MargaREADaville for BookSparks in Paradise. Read and win with us all summer-long as we share the summer’s hottest books from the biggest authors.

Kicking off with our brilliant and beautiful #SRC2018 host

Jessica Knoll, former Cosmopolitan books editor and New York Times bestselling author, joins us to host the 2018 Summer Reading Challenge with her blisteringly paced thriller, The Favorite Sister, starring two sisters who join the cast of a reality TV series. One won’t make it out alive. So…who did it? We can’t wait to find out…

And our surprise celebrity guest host is…

As actress (Nashville and Father of the Bride!), writer and advocate for dementia research and caregivers, Kimberly joins us as our celebrity guest host with her heartwarming tribute to the often fragile yet unbreakable relationships we have with our mothers.

While you wait to get your hands on this year’s lineup, be one of the first to sign up for #SRC2018 and be entered to win a beach bag of books, including our hottest hardcover of spring, Unwifeable, plus three BookSparks favorites now in paperback.

And now, your ticket to MargaREADaville is here! This year’s lineup is the best yet, with the summer’s hottest books from the biggest authors and favorite picks from our panel of diverse influencers.
