746 Books is once again hosting Twenty Books of Summer, which is a good way to think about and organize my summer reading. I hope I’ll be able to cover more than 20 books by September 3, but it’s always hard to stick to a list when you hear about new and exciting books. My list is a mix of Baileys Prize books, classics, around-the-world reads, science fiction, and just a few books I’ve been wanting to get to. Most of these are books I own already, which is a good thing.
Books from the Bailey’s Prize shortlist:
Books on current events/ state of the country:
Science fiction and fantasy:
Reading around the world:
And a few that I couldn’t categorize:
And three alternates just in case:
So, that’s my reading list for the summer! Have you read any of these? What’s on your summer reading list?
