20 Books of
Summer Winter with Cathy @746 Books is an annual blogging event that I simply cannot resist, despite the fact that the only way I complete it each year is by swapping out some of the books from my original list! But that’s half the fun.
There are always a handful of books I plan to read between June and September thanks to various readalongs and book events (the first 12 books). The rest are wishful thinking and subject to change.
