I learned about this #20BookOfSummer20 challenge from one of my favorite book bloggers Fictionofile. The Reading Challenge was created by Cathy at 746books.com and I am excited to give it a go. I plan to double dip my reading though as I join my kiddos in participating in the local library’s summer reading program too.
The rules are simple:
If you want to join in, just nab Cathy’s Books of Summer image, pick your own 20 books you would like to read and link back to her Master post from 1 June to let her know that you are taking part. She’d love your support and hopes some of you will join in the summer reading fun!
Choosing your list of books is half the fun, as is following along with everyone’s progress on this years new #20booksofsummer20 hashtag.
The challenge starts off on Monday, June 1st and finishes on Tuesday, September 1st.
Because life is CRAZY I’m not sure I can pull off 20 titles before September 1st, but here are the books I hope to devour in my efforts:
- Born a Crime by Trevor Noah
- Daring Greatly by Brené Brown
- Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis by J.D. Vance
- Three Weeks With My Brother by Nicholas Sparks
- The Weight of Blood by Laura McHugh
- The Wolf Wants In by Laura McHugh
- The Way I Heard It by Mike Rowe
- Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife by Eben Alexander
- Fierce, Free, and Full of Fire: The Guide to Being Glorious You by Jen Hatmaker
- The Gifts of Imperfection by Brené Brown
- The Full Scoop by Jill Orr
- Watership Down by Richard Adams
- To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee ***I’m re-reading this with a group of friends as an informal Book Club.***
- Educated by Tara Westover
- Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng
- Bettyville by George Hodgman
- The Light in the Forest by Conrad Richter
- Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
- The Giver of Stars by Jojo Moyes
- Light Years by James Salter
*I hyperlinked titles to the Goodreads’ description for each book.
Books bring people together. I still love the practice of asking those I meet what they are reading. (Will Schwalbe is a genius.) I hope you find some quality reading time this summer and nurture your imagination and positive energy with some sweet or scary literature.
