20 Books Of Summer Update

I’ve read 6/20 so far. I think I’m finishing a book a week. Which isn’t so bad. I usually read a lot of books at once but I’ve been happy to focus on one at a time. Mainly because the one book has been too good to put down in most cases.

And I forget to finish the others I’ve started (I’ve forgotten the books I started before this challenge so I’ll finish them when the challenge is over).

I read these books since my last post:

The Stranger From The Sea By Winston Graham

I started reading the Poldark books when the series started and read one a year, watching a series then reading the book. I loved going back to the Poldark world so much I started the next book in the series straight away. I love Winston’s Graham’s atmosphere of Cornwall and the sea. The story is full of history but the lives of the characters are so riveting and I had to find out what happened next.

How to Be an Antiracist

This is something I’ve never really read before but I felt it was important to read. And I’m glad did. Review here.

I couldn’t resist reading the next Poldark book. I had to know what happened next. But I think that’s enough for now, I have three books left and I’ll keep doing what I usually do and keep the next book for next summer.

Opium and Absinthe

This was an impulse read from Netgalley. I was intrigued by the idea of a historical mystery involving a vampire. I had to read it and I’m so glad I did. Review here.


So far that’s two trips to Cornwall, an educational read and a trip to the past. I did buy quite a few books to read recently but then started browsing on Netgalley. Whoops. Need to stop looking on there and get around to reading the books on my shelves. But anyone else who uses Netgalley will understand the guilt of not finishing and reviewing the books. (Ummm the guilt of not finishing the books I own 🙂 )

My next read is a book I’ve been itching to read, the publication date has been moved forward but I’ve been so fortunate to get an ARC from Netgalley.  (of course I’m still buying the hardback). I loved The Salt Path by Raynor Winn and now I am reading her second book!
