July 2014 reading challenge - Summer Vacation

One of the groups I'm on on Goodreads had a reading challenge this month where you spell out the name of somewhere you'd like to be this Summer using book titles. You use the first letter of the title, and can either use "a" or "the" as part of the name, or not, depending on your personal preference and the letters you need. For example, "The Pineapple Loving Dragon" could either count for the letter "p" or the letter "t"... Get it?

Anyway, I went with the word - well, words, technically - "the seaside" for where I'd like to spend at least some of my time this Summer. So, here are the books I read for the challenge:

T - Tanequil (High Druid Of Shannara, #2) by Terry Brooks ~ read on July 8th 2014.
H - The Homework That Time Forgot by J. Smith ~ read on July 16th 2014.
E - Enter: Ten Tales For Tweens by M.J.A. Ware and others ~ read on July 12th 2014.

S - Straken (High Druid Of Shannara, #3) by Terry Brooks ~ read on July 9th 2014.
E - Escape To Mars by GregKrehbiel ~ read on July 15th 2014.
A - Antrax (Voyage Of The Jerle Shannara, #2) by Terry Brooks ~ read on July 4th 2014.

I - Ilse Witch (Voyage Of The Jerle Shannara, #1) by Terry Brooks ~ read on July 2nd 2014.

Rita:
The moderator who comes up with the challenges is very creative with them.

Iggy:
I swear it's a real book! I got it from Smashwords; it's very entertaining.

Here's the Smashwords link for the book: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/90553 (It's probably on Barnes & Noble too).

You should read the author's profile as well; it's quite amusing!
