Challenge: 10 Books of Summer 2019

The sun is shining and we seem to be hurtling towards summer! So it is with much pleasure that I announce Cathy is hosting her brilliant 20 Books of Summer challenge (with the option of 15 or 10 levels too) again this year. As usual I am aiming for the lower goal and here are the 10 books I hope to read:

  1. Cold Fire by Dean Koontz
  2. The Dragon’s Blade: The Last Guardian by Michael R. Miller
  3. Jo’s Boys by Louisa May Alcott
  4. The Lady of the Rivers by Philippa Gregory
  5. The Moor by Laurie R. King
  6. Queen of the North by Anne O’Brien
  7. Reaper Man by Terry Pratchett
  8. River Rising by John A. Heldt
  9. Runemarks by Joanne M. Harris
  10. Searching for Sunday by Rachel Held Evans

The challenge runs from the 3rd June to the 3rd September, so just after that I will check back in with you all to discuss what I manage to read!

Are you taking part in this summer challenge? Are there any of these books you think I should read first?

  1. I have a tendency to confuse Jo’s Boys and Little Men – one I really enjoyed, the other not quite so much from memory, but it must be nearly fifty years since I read them and I can barely remember books I read last week! Hope you love it and all the others on your list! πŸ˜€

    1. Hello Jules, thank you for stopping by and commenting πŸ™‚ Good luck and happy reading to you too! I am particularly looking forward to reading Gregory’s The Lady of the Rivers.

  2. Here’s another voice for Jo’s Boys. I’ve always liked that and Little Men better than the earlier two. Probably something to do with being a teacher all my life.

  3. Jo’s Boys is my favourite of all the Little Women books – I know a lot of people don’t agree with me, but I really love it! Looks like you have a great list πŸ™‚

    1. Hello Loulou, thank you for stopping by and commenting πŸ™‚ Also great to hear you love Jo’s Boys so much – I loved Little Women and enjoyed Little Men, so I look forward to reading the final book.

  4. Good luck, Jessica! I think you’ll enjoy Queen of the North and The Lady of the Rivers. I have just posted my list too and will be taking the opportunity to get through some of my backlog of review copies from NetGalley. πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you, Helen πŸ™‚ I am particularly looking forward to reading Queen of the North and The Lady of the Rivers. I look forward to seeing what is on your list and what a good idea to use it to try to get through your backlog of Netgalley books!
