πŸ“š 10 Books of Summer 2021 Sign-Up β˜€

20 Books of Summer BannerHello my fellow bookworms, I am here to announce that this time next week will be the start of Cathy’s brilliant 20 Books of Summer Reading Challenge 2021 (with the option of 15 or 10 book levels too). As usual I am aiming for the lower goal of 10 books and here are those books I am hoping to read:

  1. S5 Uncovered by James Durose-RaynerCrime, Thriller
  2. The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas Classics
  3. Eragon by Christopher Paolini [re-read] – Fantasy
  4. A Tapestry of Treason by Anne O’BrienHistorical-Fiction
  5. The Queen of the Caribbean by Emilio SalgariClassics
  6. Thunder on the Right by Mary StewartMystery
  7. Men at Arms by Terry Pratchett Fantasy
  8. Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery Classics
  9. The Four Loves by C.S. LewisChristian Non-Fiction
  10. The Rose Garden by Susanna Kearsley [re-read] – Time-Travelling Romance

I think there is a good variety here to keep me interested and to suit whatever mood I might find myself in throughout the challenge, however I am also going to keep my list open to change/replacements in case I am not enjoying one of the books or not in the right mood.

Finally, the challenge runs from Tuesday, 1st June 2021 to Wednesday, 1st September 2021, so just after that I will check back in with you all to discuss what I manage to read! Happy summer reading everyone! 😎

  1. What a great list! I think Monte Cristo is a bit of a challenge, but I’m trying to read 3 Dickens, soooooo HAHAHA. My daughter really loved it when she read it for school. I like Mary Stewart, although she’s not always a 5 star read, more of a three star, EXCEPT for her Merlin books. WOW! L.M. Montgomery is my favorite author of all time, so yay for Anne! πŸ™‚ I’ve read The Four Loves but don’t remember it well, time for a reread.

    1. I hope you enjoy reading three Dickens novels – Tip: if you haven’t already read A Christmas Carol as that is great and super short! πŸ˜‰ But I am sorry to hear Mary Stewart is usually only a 3⭐⭐⭐ read for you – She is for me too, however that is my top rating! πŸ˜…

      1. I have read A Christmas Carol and Bleak House! Recently, I found out ACC isn’t considered one of his novels! It’s a novella! HA! πŸ˜‰ I guess he supposedly created “urban fantasy” with ACC!?

        1. Yeah, I knew A Christmas Carol was a novella, but I’ve never thought of it as ‘urban fantasy’ – when I hear that fairies and vampires living amongst us come to mind, rather than ghosts. If it helps other Dickens’ novels I have enjoyed are A Tale of Two Cities, Great Expectations and Oliver Twist.

    1. Hey Tanya! πŸ‘‹ Thank you for stopping by and commenting. It is always lovely to hear from a new face. 😊 I also hope you will enjoy taking part in this challenge, too.

  2. Great to see some Discworld on there, I recently re-read Carpe Jugulum on audio and was reminded how much I love the world and should really make time for more re-reads.

    1. Hey, Ellie! πŸ‘‹ Thank you for stopping by and commenting. It is always lovely to hear from a new face, especially a fellow Discworld fan! 😊 I have yet to read Carpe Jugulum, but hopefully it won’t be too long till I do.

  3. The Count of Monte Cristo is one of my favourite books, so despite the length, I think it’s definitely worth the time it takes to read it! Thunder on the Right is very entertaining too – I hope you enjoy it.

  4. Goodness, isn’t The Count of Monte Cristo about a million pages long? It’d take me all summer to read that one alone! Have a great summer – Anne of Green Gables is a perfect book for reading outside in the sunshine, if we get any. πŸ˜€

    1. Thank you, FF and if I am honest, I don’t know how long The Count of Monte Cristo is, but I presume similar to The Three Musketeers and I finished that in a summer… πŸ€žπŸ˜…

    1. Hey Duke, thank you for stopping by and commenting! It is always great to hear from a new face.😊 However I think you are being too kind to call this list ambitious – If I was being ambitious I would be going for 20 not 10 books… πŸ˜…
