Cathy @746 Books is once again hosting her #20booksofsummer reading challenge.
It’s actually winter here in Australia which is the perfect weather for curling up with a good book or two (although I’m sure my European and American readers will scoff heartily at my definition of winter and feeling cold!)
I always love the idea of this challenge but I struggle to stay motivated during the third month.
So I’m going to mess with Cathy’s rules a little and only list 15 books so that the last five can be spontaneous, flexible picks to get me through my August angst!
(replaced All My Januaries on my list)
Great cover too!
Spotted at this year’s Sydney Writer’s Festival – sounds intriguing.
August readalong with Cirtnecce.
(replaced The Bell Jar on my list)
I read and loved, loved, loved Crossing to Safety four years ago.
I’ve been meaning to read another Stegner ever since.
(replaced Our Man in Havana on my list)
(replaced Villette on my list)
This is how it happens.
Barely one day after compiling my list of 14 and leaving a space for 6 books in August, I have discovered that Annabel’s House of Books is hosting a Beryl Bainbridge reading week from 13th-19th June.
(replaced The Bone Sparrow on my list)
so that I can join in Jane @Beyond Eden Rock’s readalong.
19. Gentlemen Formally Dressed by Sulari Gentill (reviewed 27/6/16)
My lingering winter cold saw me dive into another cosy, comfort read.
Auggie and Me: Three Wonder Stories by R J Palacio (reviewed 13/7/2016)
After a drama at work, I needed something light and easy to dip into. Something that I knew would be heart-warming and uplifting.
The companion book to Wonder was an obvious choice.
I should finish The Story of the Lost Child tonight, so which book would be a good one to move on to next?
