My #20booksofsummer Challenge… so far

20 Books of Summer was initiated by fellow blogger Cathy at 746 Books.  The time parameters of the #20booksofsummer challenge: June 1 – September 5, 2016.summer read

Book bloggers all have lengthy (sometimes never-ending) TBR lists.  This challenge serves as an impetus to tackle our TBR lists together – in a fun and enjoyable way.  Summer lures of sun, holidays, socializing, visitors, etc. serve to make reading twenty titles within the time parameters even more challenging.

When I first signed up to take part in the challenge I had anticipated I would read these twenty titles, but due to mood, blog tours, the required reading of my in-person bookclub, and last minute review commitments, the books I actually read for the challenge were these:

  1.  “June” by by Miranda Beverly-Whittemore
  2.  “The girls in the garden” by Lisa Jewell
  3.  “Daisy in chains” by Sharon Bolton
  4.  “Valentina” by S.E. Lynes
  5. “Field of graves” by J.T. Ellison
  6.  “I’m thinking of ending things” by Iain Reid
  7.  “Alex” by Pierre Lemaitre
  8.  “Before the fall” by Noah Hawley
  9.  “Shadowed” by Karen E. Olson
  10.  “Missing, presumed” by Susie Steiner
  11.  “The sister” by Louise Jensen
  12.  “In a dark, dark, wood” by Ruth Ware
  13.  “A game for all the family” by Sophie Hannah
  14.  “The beauty of the end” by Debbie Howells
  15. “No one knows” by J.T. Ellison
  16. “Those we left behind” by Stuart Neville  (now reading)
  17.  “Redemption Road” by John Hart
  18.  “Of sea and seed” by Annie Daylon
  19. “The lady vanished” by Gretta Mulrooney
  20.  “The kind worth killing” by Peter Swanson

That is not to say I won’t read the titles I omitted from my previous list, only that for reasons important at the time I had to shuffle them further down the queue.  I’ll get to them soon.  Stay tuned…tbr
