20 Books of Summer Challenge

I've decided that I am going to join into this challenge hosted by Cathy at 746 Books.  I mean I read so much during the summer anyway, so this should be an easy one!  Here's the information on the challenge:

1 summer.
96 Days.
20 Books.

 From now until 5 September I will be attempting to read my 20 Books of Summer along with Cathy at 746 Books. Why not join in with your own 20 (or 10, or 15!), read along with some of the books, or just cheer us on as we try to get our TBR piles down?

Here are my 20 books I hope to finish this summer, although I may change them as my mood changes, or other books show up on my shelves, also some will be egalleys or ARCs that I will be reading, as well as audiobooks of course! 

1.  The Head of Medusa (Elementals #3) by Michelle Madow
2.  Empire of Dust (Blood of Gods and Royals #2) by Eleanor Herman
3.  Black River Falls by Jeff Hirsch
4.  And I Darken by Kiersten White
5.  The Raven King (The Raven Cycle #4) by Maggie Stiefvater
6.  Losing It by Emma Rathbone
7.  Gifted by H.A. Swain
8.  Girl in the Shadows (Girl on a Wire #2) by Gwenda Bond
9.  Ink and Bone (The Great Library #1) by Rachel Caine
10.  Paper and Fire (The Great Library #2) by Rachel Caine
11.  The Killer in Me by Margot Harrison
12.  The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich
13.  Nash (Marked Men #4) by Jay Crownover
14.  Before Jamaica Lane (On Dublin Street #3) by Samantha Young
15.  Finding It (Losing It #3) by Cora Carmack
16.  Wake the Hollow by Gaby Triana

18.  The Beautiful Ashes by Jeaniene Frost
19.  The Warlord Wants Forever by Kresley Cole
20.  The Shadow Cabinet (Shades of London #3) by Maureen Johnson

I know I'll read more than that, but I'm going to set those up as my to-reads among all the others I will probably read.


  1. Great challenge. I know you'll make this goal plus many more. :)

    1. I've probably come close already this summer! :-)

  2. I usually focus my summer reading on two goals: 1. to read as many potential Printz Award books as I can cram in (or stand) and 2. to catch up on my book club selctions. This summer I am also going to focus on reading a few more books from my many challenges. I keep adding books to my TBR pile and then I seem to never find time to read them because I keep reading other books. It is a vicious circle. Sigh. You asked about the SYNC Audiobooks. Once you download them, they are yours. This, of course is a blessing and a curse. It is wonderful to not have to rush to read them but it removes the immediacy and the tension that goes along with it. Hence, I still haven't listened to a few of the books I downloaded two summers ago. Definitely hop over and get I'LL GIVE YOU THE SUN right now before the offer goes away. I love that book. Love, Love it. -Anne

    1. Believe me, I keep adding books as if I don't have anything to read. It's a horrible addiction I think. But I can't seem to stop.. Glad to hear the audiobooks will be mine. I went and got both I'll Give You the Sun and Zac and Mia! Both are ones I've wanted to read for a while.


I love to get comments and I read them all! If you leave a link in your comment, I just might visit you back.
