It’s that time again, 20 Books of Summer, or is it 10 or 15? I love this challenge hosted by Cathy at 746 Books. The challenge ran from June 1st to August 31st and I made it with a few days to spare. This year I set a goal of 20 books with “Summer” in the title. The majority of them being backlist books (2021 or prior). I had 32 possibilities to choose from and I was successful in reading 20 from the list, 15 being backlist books.
