Will this year finally be the year I complete my 20 Books of Summer challenge?
From now until 5 September I will be attempting to read my 20 Books of Summer. Why not join in with your own 20 (or 10, or 15!), read along with some of the books or just cheer me on as I try and get that dreaded 746 down by another 20 in just 3 months.
Here are my 20, all by women writers this year:
The Lottery by Shirley Jackson Small Island by Andrea Levy
- Bogeywoman by Jaimy Gordon
A Spell of Winter by Helen Dunmore The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton The Diving Pool by Yoko Ogawa Apple Tree Yard by Louise Doughty Blue Nights by Joan Didion I Am No One You Know by Joyce Carol Oates The Keep by Jennifer Egan A Crime in the Neighbourhood by Suzanne Berne The Republic of Love by Carol Shields The Bottle Factory Outing by Beryl Bainbridge My Lover’s Lover by Maggie O’Farrell Hunger Makes Me A Modern Girl by Carrie Brownstein Geek Love by Katherine Dunn Sister by Rosamund Lupton Special Topics in Calamity Physics by Marisha Pessl Moon Tiger by Penelope Livelyreplaced with Solace by Belinda McKeon
This Is How by MJ Hyland
Now, anyone who knows me, knows I am flexible with rules, so I may swap some books for something else during the course of the challenge and I will be keeping reviews short and sweet for the sake of my sanity!
