10 Books of Summer Reading Challenge 2020 Wrap-Up

Hello my fellow bookworms, on Monday, 3rd September the UK’s summer and my 10 Books of Summer Reading Challenge 2020 came to an end and now it is time to look back on what I read:

Those I didn’t finish/get round to were:

  • The Firebird by Susanna Kearsley (currently reading)
  • Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne
  • The Testament of Loki by Joanne M Harris
  • The Phantom Tree by Nicola Cornick
  • S5 Uncovered by James Durose-Rayner
  • Madam, Will You Talk? by Mary Stewart

Altogether that is only six books finished, but I am not going to be hard myself, because let’s face it this has been a pretty darn weird summer/year, with the ‘pandemic-that-shall-not-be-named’ going on, so I am just pleased to have enjoyed some good health and books. 😊

Now over to you: Did you take part in this challenge? What were your stand out summer reads? β›±

  1. It’s a really respectable number of books – and besides… reading isn’t a competition. It’s far more about how you respond to the books, rather than the quantity you’ve read, I think:).

  2. You definitely shouldn’t be hard on yourself – you did really well, it has been a very weird year and you read Wolf Hall which was a bit of a chunkster.

  3. Rudyard Kipling is an author I should get around to reading. i have a short story collection that is supposedly in the darker vein that would be perfect for this time of year.

    1. Ooo Carl, I didn’t know Rudyard Kipling had wrote a short story collection that is on the darker side – I hope you will enjoy reading it and I look forward to hearing your thoughts on it. As I have only read The Jungle Book and now Kim. πŸ™‚

  4. I didn’t manage to read all of the books on my list either, but I agree that with everything else that has been going on this summer we shouldn’t be too hard on ourselves. Six books is still a good result!
