Reading Challenge

20 Books of Summer Reading Challenge #20booksofsummer

It’s back!! Last summer was my first year participating in this challenge and I loved it! I have been mulling over my books and below are the 20 books I would like to read.

Cathy@746books is our host and the challenge is to read 10, 15, or even 20 books between June 3rd and September 3rd. I am once again for going for it and will be attempting the full 20! I have a very diversified group of books, so there is little to no chance I will get genre burn out. The books I chose are a combination of new releases, my bookshelf and of course NetGalley. If all goes well my NetGalley shelf will be nearly empty when I am done. That is if I can keep my finger off the trigger button!

The rules are simple – make a post using one of her images, list the books you would like to read, and link back to her master post. If you want to swap out a book…go for it. Want to completely overhaul the list halfway through…why not?! If you decide you want to drop your goal halfway through…do it! She is quite flexible on the rules and that’s what makes this challenge so appealing to me!

Throughout the summer be sure to use the hashtag #20booksofsummer.

*Book reviews will be linked as I post my reviews.

  1. I really like your selection 🙂 Spotted a few of my recent favourites: Chestnut Man, One of Us Is Lying.

    I haven’t read anything by Elin Hilderbrand so far, but i’m also planning to try one of her books during summer 🙂

  2. The Home Erring for Outcast Girls is on my list, as well as Things You Save in the Fire and Because You’re Mine. I have read the Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo (a good one) and Finding Lucy.(disappointing since I so love this author).

    Hope you love them all!

    1. Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is my book club read for June. Hopefully we all love it! Crossing my fingers I like Keeping Lucy more than you did. It will be my first time reading this author.

  3. Great choice of books – I would happily read all of your list. I finished The last widow already and it is SO good. I’ve got Seven husbands on my list too as I’ve heard nothing but good things.

    Also, it wasn’t until earlier today that I learned Blake Crouch has a new book out soon and I’m very jealous of everyone who already has it 😀

    Happy Reading!

    I’m joining in too –
