20 Books of Summer Reading Challenge #20booksofsummer22

20 Books of Summer is a reading challenge hosted by Cathy @ 746 Books. The challenge runs from June 1st through September 1st, with the goal being to read and review 10, 15, or 20 books during this time period.

I’m pretty sure I can read at least 10-15 books, though reviewing them too might be the challenging part. I’ll give it a go. I’ve got a long “summer hopefuls” list, a mixture of books I own, library books on hold, and NetGalley/Edelweiss titles. I’ve become a mood reader lately, so this list is subject to change. The top contenders are pictured below:



Here are the books I’ve completed for this challenge:
  1. EVERY SUMMER AFTER by Carley Fortune (June 4)
  2. SMILE BEACH MURDER by Alicia Bessette (June 9)
  3. DAISY JONES & THE SIX by Taylor Jenkins Reid (June 14)
  4. THE GIRL IN THE MIRROR by Rose Carlyle (June 17)
  5. THE FAVOR by Nora Murphy (June 20)
  6. THE ANATOMY OF DESIRE by L.R. Dorn (June 23)
  7. THE DEAD ROMANTICS by Ashley Poston (June 26)

Happy summer reading! — 𝓓𝓲𝓪𝓷𝓪
