20 Books of Summer 2017 – Part 2 #20booksofsummer

Cathy at Cathy 746 has a yearly challenge to read twenty books over the summer months starting on 1 June 2017 and running until 3 September 2017, and once again I’ve decided to join her.

My aim this year was to read all twenty books in the allotted time span but the plan has been somewhat disrupted, however despite only posting reviews for books 1 – 5 of the challenge (you can see the original list the master page here) I have actually finished reading the first set of 10 with reviews to follow,  and so it’s time to choose the next set in the hope I will magically get these read before the cut-off date!

The links below will take you to the Goodreads description

The Ripper of Waterloo Road by Jan Bondeson

The Spider and the Fly by Claudia Rowe

Dear Mr M by Herman Koch

Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood

Stranger in the House by Julie Summers

Before the Poison by Peter Robinson

The Summer House by Santa Montefiore

The Judges Wife by Ann O’Loughlin

The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne

Murder is Easy by Agatha Christie

My original second list looked a wee bit on the bleak side so I chose some cheerier books to break it up but never fear there is plenty of murder to get me through August!


I will continue to tweet my way through the challenge using the hashtag #20booksofsummer to demonstrate when one of my reads is part of this challenge!

Now if you’ll excuse me, I seem to have a big pile of books to read!

Any of these take your fancy?

  1. Oh, you have some great reads there, Cleo. I’ve been wanting to read the Koch, so I’ll be really interested in what you think of that one. And you’ve got a Robinson and Christie in there; can’t go wrong with them! I’ll look forward to your reviews.

  2. A fun way to get those book piles lowered. And you seem to be steaming right along. I have a feeling you’ll get to all of them in time. Enjoy!

  3. You were smart to break your 20 into two sets – that left more room for flexibility and made it look more manageable I bet. I’ve read 9 and reviewed 7 so far, so I’m not really thinking I’ll make it to 20 by September! But it’s okay – I still have enjoyed myself!

    You know I love the Atwood and I love Christie but I’ve not read that one yet. good looking bunch of books!
