20 Books of Summer 2021!!

Hello fellow bookworms!

I am super excited to announce that I will be taking part in the 20 Books of Summer Challenge for the fourth year running! For those of you that are new to the challenge it runs from 1st June – 1st September and is hosted by the lovely Cathy746books (please click the link for the rules and sign up info).

This is my favourite challenge of the year because it is so relaxed. Want to change your target? Go for it! Want to change your TBR? Not a problem. It’s having relaxed challenges like this all the more fun for us readers and for the first time last year I not only managed all 20 books but I finished it early! My plan is to continue my successΒ so I am going for the FULL MONTY! It’s been really hard to choose a TBR as there are so many books that I want to read! Every year I make a list and then I find that I deviate from it so below are my possibilities. I’ve split them into three different groups; NetGalley, Physical and eBooks…

NetGalley Possibilities

Physical Books


To give myself a slightly harder challenge I am not going to count my audio books towards my reading goal. At the moment I am easily reading/listening to 12/14 books a month, with 4 of them usually audios so I want to make this a little more challenging and focus on the reading side. I’ll probably regret this decision when it 31st August and I’m four books short but hey lets live on the wild side!

Will you be joining the challenge? Which book should I start with?

  1. I also like this challenge for the same reason. I try to read Summery books for this challenge, especially ones that have been on my backlist. I will have to see which ones I want to try and tackle this year.

  2. I’m going to be taking part again this year. This will be the 3rd time I’ve attempted this I think. Hopefully this time I will actually succeed. I made a list of all the books I want to read last night and will be sharing them on my blog soon.

  3. Your list looks great! I haven’t read any of them but several look very tempting – I’m looking forward to hearing what you think of them. I’m stunned by how many audiobooks you manage to get through, though – I’m lucky if I stagger through a couple a month…! πŸ˜€

  4. I nearly put The Devil and the Dark Water on my list, but I stupidly have the hardback of it and it’s just so big and intimidating for a challenge. I loved his debuit so I’m sure I’ll like it but I’m cursing the format I went with now. I like the sound of Threadneedle too.

    1. There’s always time to change your mind! I used to be intimidated with big books but the last couple I’ve read I’ve really enjoyed. Hopefully The Devil and the Dark Water will be the same. Good luck with the challenge 😊


  5. I loved Where the Crawdads Sing when I read it last year so definitely a vote that you should start with that one. I want to read Threadneedle too as sounds intriguing.
    Good luck with your challenge.

  6. I’m intrigued by Thread Needle so I’ll vote for that one to start. I have Practical Magic on my list for July since Alice Hoffman has that for her read-along for the month. Would you be interested in buddy-reading that one with me? Good luck with your challenge – you’ve got a lot of great titles picked out.
