20 Books of Summer – 2019

The 20 Books of Summer Challenge is an annual event run by the lovely Cathy, running from June 3rd until September 3rd. Since I nailed it last year, joining in again this year was a total no-brainer. And just like last year, I will be reading these 20 books on top of my other commitments because otherwise it just doesn’t feel enough like a challenge to me. Unless my reading slump continues, in which case I’ll be in serious trouble 😂

So, here are the 20 books on my list. For now. This list has gone through so many changes already and I can’t promise you’ll be seeing these same 20 books again at the end of it all. But that’s okay! Because it’s totally allowed!

In no particular order, with links to Goodreads for your convenience. Reviews will be added as and when they are written. I hope.

What do you think? I’m pretty excited about my list. Apart from two titles that are only there because Janel made me add them 😜.

Who’s joining in this year? The more, the merrier! It’ll be fun! I think 🤣

Wish me luck! xx

Weekly Wrap-Up (April 28)

Bit of a blur again, this past week. I can’t quite figure out how April is almost over. This year is flying!

Spent the Easter weekend socialising (ugh), drinking wine (yay) and enjoying the warm sunshine (woohoo). Then I decided to see what the fuss about “Line of Duty” was about so I hit up Netflix and started watching. About halfway through the second episode, I realised I was watching season 3 because for some reason our Netflix doesn’t have the show from the start. But by that time, I was already so hooked on it that I kept watching. I’m now trying to stay away from all things spoilers until my box set arrives. Between that, The Avengers Endgame and Game of Thrones, I may just have to avoid the internet altogether.

Why am I telling you all this? Well, because obviously that had an impact on my reading. As you will see below.

| BOOKS I READ THIS WEEK |

Oops. Oh well, I’m so ahead of my May schedule that I’m really not bothered. And I’m quite enjoying reading some books from my ever-growing TBR instead of books for blog tours all the time.

| BOOKS I BOUGHT THIS WEEK |

Just these two. Although I’m running out of space on my shelves. I did tell myself to read a few books first and then buy new ones. Then I laughed.
