1. A blog that is new to you that focuses on the same type of literature you do (ex: I read YA so the blog would need to focus on YA).
I learned about this blog on twitter from someone I always read so I checked it out and then saw that she was also participating in the Summer Break Reading Challenge. Now I have her in my google reader and can't get enough of her awesome reviews.

I learned about Firespell by Chloe Neill on OWL's blog during the second SBRC challenge. I had heard of Neill before but never read anything and this new book looks great.

4. A book about a human/animal bond (in your preferred age category, if possible).
Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne
