20 books of summer: my list

Hi everyone, it’s time for me to sign up for another infamous challenge in the world of book bloggers. It will be my first participation in ’20 books of summer’, hosted by Cathy of 746 books!

These are the rules:

  • Compile a list of 10, 15 or 20 books that you’d like to read this summer
  • Read and review them between the 1st of June and the 1st of September

It’s as simple as that!

Now 20 books in three months is a lot for me, even during summer when I tend to read more often but I usually also select thicker books. So I hope to end up somewhere between 10 and 15 books.

Since I’m picky on which books make it to my TBR, I’m quite good at sticking to that list, but I’m not so great at making up a list for the next three months and read no other books than the list 😅. I borrow more than 50% of the books I read from the library and so I depend on which books are available. And sometimes a random books grabs my attention. However, during summer I always feel like less people visit the library and more popular books become available. I don’t know why this is the case, since a lot more books are read during summer compared to the winter period, but well, maybe people don’t take library reads with them on holiday?

That’s why I have chosen to make a heavy list of 20 books, knowing I’ll not be able to read and/or borrow them during this challenge, but this gives me the flexibility I need.

I’ll have read some of these before the 1st June, but not all of them.

This are 20 books, and I’ll not read them all this summer, but I hope that by September 1st I’ll have read at least half of them 😄.

Will you be joining 20 books of summer? I’m curious to see your lists!
