For the last few years, Cathy at 746 Books has hosted the 20 Books of Summer challenge. You make a list of 20 books and try to read them between June 1 and September 1. In past years, I’ve had no trouble reading 20 books in 3 months, the issue is more can I read these 20 books (Cathy doesn’t mind if we swap the books on the list) and can I actually post reviews of 20 books (not necessarily required). And since I would have made a summer TBR list anyway, this challenge fits in nicely and shouldn’t add to my stress levels.
What’s on the list? A lot of the books from my TBR Pile challenge (#2-6), books I’ve got on my wait list at the library (#7-11), some good reads for the Nonfiction challenge (#12-15), a few ARCs (#16-18). Plus I’m aiming for a decent amount of diversity. No easy short reads, but no huge ones either.
If you’ve read any of these, what do you recommend?
Hope you’ll consider joining the challenge. Either way, happy summer reading!
