I read 14/20 books for my summer reading challenge, this is my list of books I read, how did I do? Check out my original post click on the titles to visit my reviews.
9. Why Mummy Drinks by Gill Sims (tbr)
Funny book, review to come.
11. Percy Jackson and The Lightening Thief by Rick Riordan ( to review Books2doors website)
A fun and adventurous book, review to come.
12. This is going to hurt by Adam Kay
An enjoyable read if sad and eye opening. Makes you appreciate the NHS and it’s workers. Recommend!
13. Five Quarters of the Orange by Joanne Harris (tbr)
I love Joanne Harris books, she’s an amazing sensual writer. Sometimes this book meandered on and I struggled to keep interested. I don’t think the ending and resolution lived up to what I expected. Just my opinion.
14. Parrot in the Pepper Tree by Chris Stewart (tbr)
Such an enjoyable read. Review to come
In review: I visited different places real and fantastical, Scotland, Cornwall, Narnia. I’ve read an assortment of funny, sad, weird, dark and mystery books. And I couldn’t pick a favourite as they are all different and wonderful in their own way.
I haven’t mentioned the books started and given up on or those not included in this summer challenge. (I started reading A Perfect Cornish Summer but it didn’t live up to what it offered.) I read a lot of the books I planned to.
8/14 were books on my to-be-read list, others I’ve reviewed for Netgalley or Books2doors website. A small few were from a wishlist, books I’ve been meaning to be read for a while. I always feel that I should read more from my tbr and towards the end of this challenge that’s what I tried to focus on. But it’s always hard to read all the books 🙂
Have you read these?
I don’t plan to review all the books I’ve read but I will be posting the reviews I haven’t got around to within the next few weeks. I thought I’d already posted some.
September: I might reread some books and read for fun not worrying about my tbr so much, athough my Netgalley list is long. And then in October I have a blog tour and it’s that time: Halloween Reads 🙂
