This summer, I have a lot of travel planned, which means long flights and a lot of reading time. I want to make the most of my reading but still keep it fun.
746 Books is hosting a challenge called 20 Books of Summer. I’m pretty sure I can read 20 books over three months (June to September), and I’ve already gotten started on a few. There are 23 books below. Some are new releases, some are classics. Some are already on my Kindle, and some are on my wait list at the library. Three are Bailey’s Prize nominees (which will bring me to 8 from the longlist). Some are from favorite series (the Temeraire series by Naomi Novik) and some are new-to-me authors (Ann Leckie, Elizabeth Bonesteel, Kelly Link).
I’m particularly excited to read the new books by Jenni Fagan, Helen Phillips, and Monica Byrne. I loved The Panopticon, The Beautiful Bureaucrat, and The Girl in the Road, and I can’t wait to see what they write next.
