My 20 Books of Summer

Cathy at Cathy 746 Books hosted her annual challenge of 20 Books of Summer. It was up to
participants to choose 10, 15 or 20 books from our TBR shelves to read between 1 June and 3 September 2017. A great challenge to lower the number of books on your shelves.

I did not write a list but just choose what I was feeling like at the time. When I make a list I tend to read everything except the titles on the list! Yes, that's me. I opted for 10 books since I also tend to over estimate my capacity, it was summer and this year a lot of holidays for me.

I am therefor rather pleased that I managed to read 13 books from my shelves. The books cover different genres and are rather easy reads, which is totally suitable for the warmer months of the year. Here is the list and links when there is a review.

  1. Chopra, Deepak - Self Power - Spiritual Solutions to Life's Greatest Challenges
  2. Indridason, Arnaldur - Den som glömmer (Kamp Knox)
  3. The Spy - Paulo Coelho
  4. Bryson, Bill - Notes from a Small Island
  5. Muir, Kate - left Bank
  6. Shreve, Anita - Eden Close
  7. Shreve, Anita - Sea Glass
  8. Isherwood, Christopher - Goodbye to Berlin
  9. Munro Alice - Something I've Been Meaning to Tell You 
  10. Jónasson, Ragnar - Rupture
  11. Simenon, Georges - Maigret Mystified
  12. Johnson, Robert G. & Westin, Janey - The Last Kings of Norse America
  13. Kerr, Philip - Prague Fatale

Great challenge and I hope to return for next year!


  1. Of these I'm having read only a Goodbye To Berlin, which I really enjoyed. Good list

    1. I enjoyed more than I would think. It is an easy going reading list for the lazy summer months.
