20 Books of Summer 2019 #20booksofsummer – updated 20/8


Hello friends!

So many of my fellow bloggers are doing the reading challenge “20 Books of Summer” run by Cathy at 746books that I have been inspired to join in! For me the challenge was not picking 20 books, but rather sticking to the list – I’m very much a mood reader! All 20 titles will go towards my annual Goodreads goal, but as usual I’m also trying to tick off various other challenges! I plan to link to my reviews as I go too!

NetGalley books (also count towards Mount TBR):

Watching You, by Arne Dahl – Review – I’m also going to use it towards the Modern Mrs Darcy Challenge of a book in translation.

The Death of Her, by Debbie Howells – Review

The Pool House, by Tasmina Perry – Review

The Girl Who Came Back, by Kerry Wilkinson – Review

The Death of Mrs Westaway, by Ruth Ware – Review

Physical books I own (also count towards Mount TBR)

Anne of Green Gables, by LM Montgomery (also using towards Modern Mrs Darcy Challenge of a book outside your comfort zone) – Review

There is also a physical book that I own which does not count towards Mount TBR, as it is an ARC for a title that is due to be published in August I won from a publisher (it will still count towards my Goodreads):

  1. Some great choices there! I loved The Death of Mrs Westaway, and the Abir Mukherjee series is great. I read The Woods years ago so don’t remember much about it except that I enjoyed it. And as for Anne of Green Gables – my favourite childhood book! I still model myself on Anne… 😉 Hope you love all your choices! 😀
