Hello my fellow bookworms, June is almost upon us and that will mean the official start of summer (although, here in the UK that might be hard to believe with the recent patchy weather) and that means it is time again for Cathy’s 20 Books of Summer challenge (with the option to read 10 or 15 as well).
Last year was the first year I took part, I made a list of 10 physical books and managed to read 6 of them which I thought was not half bad for my first attempt. This year I have decided to make a list of 5 physical books and 5 e-books – I hope this mixture will help me read all 10! Here are my 10 books (in alphabetically order):
~ 1 ~
The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown
I have read and enjoyed all of the thrilling adventures of Robert Langdon, yet I seem to have missed this one! (Plus I am super excited about the release of the film adaptation of Langdon’s last adventure, Inferno)
~ 2 ~
Jane Steele by Lyndsay Faye
I have heard such great things about this book and then the lovely Lynn sent me her copy – I am super excited to read it.
~ 3 ~
The Gospel of Loki by Joanne Harris
Sadly this book has been in my Kindle’s TBR folder for too long…even though I heard great things about this book and author.
~ 4 ~
A Feast for Crows by George R R Martin
I am currently watching the amazing 6th series of Game of Thrones and, this summer, I am looking forward to continuing with the books.

Wendy Darling, Volume 1: Stars by Colleen Oakes
Another book that has been in my Kindle’s TBR folder for too long…even though I have loved all my previous reads by Oakes.
~ 6 ~
The Queen’s Choice by Anne O’Brien
This is the latest historical fiction from Anne O’Brien, who is rapidly becoming a go-to author for me when I am in a historical mood.
~ 7 ~
Master of Shadows by Neil Oliver
I have enjoyed many documentaries presented by historian Neil Oliver, so I am interested to read his first foray into historical fiction.
~ 8 & 9 ~
Trouble at the Little Village School by Gervase Phinn
The School Inspector Calls! by Gervase Phinn
I actually read the 1st book of this series as part of this challenge last year. A sweet and fun series about a small village school, perfect for summer.
~ 10 ~
A House Divided by Margaret Skea
I recently read the 1st Munro book, Turn of the Tide, by Skea and I am really looking forward to this, the 2nd book.
Are you taking part in this summer challenge? Are there any of these books you think I should read first?
