Cape John, Nova Scotia

I’m assuming I’ll read a fair amount this summer and hope that I’ll be able to fit in eighteen titles before the middle of September.  I guess it will depend on how much company I have, how much gardening I do, and how many little road trips we take…

If you click on the cover it will take you to the Goodreads description of the book.

Here are the next eighteen titles on my TBR:

  1.  “Alex” by Pierre Lemaitre

(this is the selection chosen by my ‘in person’ book club that meets on June 28th)



2. “Valentina” by S. E. Lynes

I’m reading this one for a Blackbird Digital Books blog tour on June 30th



3.  “A game for all the family” by Sophie Hannah

I’m reading this William Morrow title for Edelweiss

(I’ve read this author before and enjoyed her work)

Happy Summer reading!

    So many books so little time! I will have to be Methuselah to get through my never ending TBR list


  3. FictionFan says:

    Great list! Aren’t you joining in with the #20booksofsummer challenge over at 746 Books and on Twotter (that’s a typo, but I’ve decided I like it… 😉 )? The rules are very relaxed. I’ll be reading Before the Fall this summer too, and Entry Island is brilliant! I actually think I liked it even better than the Lewis trilogy… enjoy!


    • Fictionophile says:

      Oh! Wish I had known about #20booksofsummer before posting. I can easily amend my list. If I start at June 1st as stipulated then 20 shouldn’t be a problem. Thanks for the heads up!
