20 books of summer 2021

For the past three years I have attempted this challenge, I’ve figured out my TBR for the twenty books and set off trying to read them, and each year I haven’t managed to get past ten books. So this year I am taking a slightly different approach but before I get into that in case you haven’t heard of this challenge before here are the details…

It’s really simple, it’s hosted by Cathy over at 746 Books and the aim is to read twenty books between 1st of June and the 1st of September, although you could change this to ten or fifteen books too if that feels more manageable. The great thing is that you can choose what books you read and you can stick to your list or you can change things up halfway through, which is what I usually do.

In previous years I have picked my twenty books and then usually not stuck to my list at all and haven’t yet managed past the ten book mark, so this year I am picking ten books that will be my only aim and if I finish them and have time to read more then I will pick books at random depending on what I feel like reading. To be honest I still might deviate from my intended TBR because I am known to do so but that’s the good thing about this challenge is that it is really easy going. So here is what I am hoping to read for this years challenge…

Quite a good mix I think, we’ll see what happens, anyone else taking part in this years challenge?

book mad and generally creative

  1. Witches Steeped in Gold is on my list too. I went in the opposite direction and chose 30 books so I have extra choices, but I like your plan too. I’ll be interested to see your thoughts on House of Hollow.

    • Extra choices is a good plan, I am so looking forward to Witches Steeped in Gold I’m pretty sure it’s first up on my list. You have some really good looking books on your list, I think I’ve just found a load more for my TBR ☺️

  2. I think you have come up with an excellent strategy. I set my goal low and anything over that is gravy.

    Good luck!

    I’m hoping to read twenty of my 1001 Children’s Books You Must Read Before You Grow Up.
