Image result for 20 books of summer

With one month down in this challenge, it is time to see if I am on track. My goal when I started this challenge was to read at least 7 of the books off the least in June and July, finishing up in August. My original post can be found here: 20 Books of Summer 2018

I am behind already, only reading 5 in June.

This means I have to read 9 during the month of July to catch up. Oh boy, that might not be as easy as it seems. Only time will tell. Wish me luck.

July Goals

I decided to set goals instead of making a TBR list for the month. I only have three, I did not want to overwhelm myself.

 

  1. Read at least 7 books off my 20 Books of Summer Challenge list. Image result for 20 books of summer
  2. Read at least 7 of the children’s books from Netgalley per week. Image result for netgalley
  3. Only request books from authors or that belong to series that I have already started. I might need someone telling me not to click, just like Marge telling Lisa to stop.Image result for books gif

So, there you have it. I am pretty sure I will do fine with 1 & 2, but I will have a tough time with the last one.  Happy Reading everyone.

Well, I decided to join Noriko and Lili in the 24 hour readathon. As many of you know, I have been without internet since Tuesday, so am writing this post at the public library. I started at 8:00 p.m. Friday night and fell asleep in my chair around midnight. I started reading again before 6:00 a.m. on Saturday and have finished two books so far with my third one started. I was able to finish 3 books and get 45% through a fourth by 8:00 p.m. on Saturday. I am so tired. I will be heading to bed early tonight.

Cathy@746books host a yearly summer challenge called 20 Books of Summer. The challenge is to read  20 books between June 1st and September 3rd.

This will be the second year I have participated in this challenge. I read all 20 last year finishing the last one just under the wire. Last year I chose all summer books. This year I am going to mix it up and read books that I have been looking forward to. Some are ARCs, some are ebooks that are already out and some are books off my shelf that I have been meaning to read. Here we go:

The Great Alone Her Last Word Flying at Night How to Walk Away The Forgotten Ones Out of Time The Weight of Shadows (Shadow Series, #1) Three Day Fiancée (Animal Attraction, #2)

20 Books of Summer 2017 Finished

Well, I managed to finish my last book just under the wire. This challenge ran from June 1st to September 3rd. I chose books that had “summer” in the title or that took place in the summer months. Check out my updated post with reviews linked. 

20 Books of Summer 2017 Update

Update on September 4th. I stayed up last night to finish my last book. It was a quick read and I really enjoyed it. I will link my reviews to the covers of each book. Some of these reviews are on Goodreads, for some reason they never got posted to my blog.

Thanks to Cathy at 746 Books and Fictionophile for this challenge. It was what I needed to get these summer books finally read. I enjoyed them all and it was a rather romantic summer reading season for me.

So, here is my list. I read 20 books that take place in the summer. All of them were on my TBR list. Here goes: Continue reading “20 Books of Summer 2017 Update”
