Hi and welcome to my 20 Books of Summer challenge! As most, if not all, of you will know, this challenge is hosted by Cathy at 746 books. Check out her announcement here and link up if you want to join in.
I made a list of 20 books. Then I changed it. Then I changed it again. Then I decided not to join, as I didn’t really feel like having to review books I didn’t have to review. Then I signed up for a bunch of tours despite having told myself I wouldn’t, while I got accepted for two NetGalley requests I had completely forgotten about. And here we are, with an amended list and only one owned book left on it, and feeling slightly overwhelmed.
The NetGalley selection:
1. The Rule, David Jackson
2. Hostage, Clare Mackintosh
3. The Perfect Life, Nuala Ellwood
4. Five Minds, Guy Morpuss
5. Cabin Fever, Alex Dahl
6. The Final Girl Support Group, Grady Hendrix
The physical proofs selection:
7. Raising Hell, Bryony Pearce
8. The Great Silence, Doug Johnstone
9. No Honour, Awais Khan
10. Black Reed Bay, Rod Reynolds
11. Fallen Angels, Gunnar Staalesen
12. Winterkill, Ragnar Jónasson
13. The Beresford, Will Carver
14. The Rabbit Factor, Antti Tuomainen
15. The Jasmine Throne, Tasha Suri
16. The Light of the Midnight Stars, Rena Rossner
The blog tour selection:
17. This Fragile Earth
18. Ouija, Zoé O’Farrell (cover to be revealed)
19. Camp Death, Jim Ody (cover to be revealed)
My own TBR:
20. Circus of Wonders, Elizabeth Macneal
What do you make of my list, any books you’d recommend? Happy reading! Wish me luck!
Omg excellent selection!
Same with Zoe’s blogtours for me, half way thru Grady Hendrix (absolutely brilliant!)
The Circus Of Wonders is also on my pile as well as ‘The Dark’ by James Herbert, ‘Medusa’ by Rosie Hewlett,’Zombie’s by Joyce Carol Oates, and ‘Good Neighbours’ by Sarah Langan.
And going back around the Beam with a Dark Tower re-read!
Thank you! I did a little happy dance when I saw I was approved for the new Grady Hendrix 😍😂 Happy to hear it lives up to the expectations!
ooh fabulous list! Good luck!! Let’s hope we’re all successful this Summer haha!
Thanks Karen 😘 And 🤞🤞🤞
I loved The Rule and Hostage! And I started Five Minds last night, it’s gripping!!!
Yay, good to know!!
Good luck Kelly I know the feeling! I almost didn’t join in as I couldn’t decide either, but made a list and have started actually reading one of the books on it! 😂
Thanks Nicki 😘
You’re so screwed. 😏
Thanks for the support 🙄 #Ineednewfriends
Real friends speak the truth 💁🏼♀️😂
Fair point 😂
That is such a fabulous selection though! I’ve only read Hostage (which I loved), and I will be looking forward to your thoughts on all of these. xx
Thanks Yvo 😊 One down, 19 to go 🙈😂
Haha I’ve read and reviewed two so far, but that is only because they were shorties reviews. 😉
Thanks so much for taking part. Good luck and happy reading!
Thanks Cathy 💜
Sticking to the list is definitely the hardest. And I also started off with a slow read, so I haven’t just finished a book. But well, happy reading and I’m curious how your list will turn out in the end.
Thanks Annelies 😊 No guarantees whatsoever 🙈😂
