20 Books of Summer 2022

20 books of summer


Once again, 746books.com organizes a special challenge:

20 Books of Summer
June 1-August 31

I am back for my 3rd participation.

So here is the file with my 20 books.
Beside 3 books for review, and 3 Japanese titles I didn’t get to read during the Japanese Literature Challenge, all my books are books on my TBR list, and most of them even on my physical shelves!

I color coded the genres. Nice diversity. I think:
nonfiction, play, literary fiction, science fiction, mystery.

Feel free to copy the format if it’s of any help for you.

I will update it as I go along :

How many of these have you read?
Which one is your favorite?

  1. I’ve read Upgrade and all of the Kinsey Millhone series! So sad the alphabet permanently ends at Y. Good luck!


  2. This sounds like a fun challenge, and you do have a nice mix of genres. If I’m reading your chart right, your aim is to read 64 pages a day, which seems completely doable. Have fun!


    • You are right. Lots of these books are not very thick, so that would be an average of 64 pages/day. I read a more than 20 books last summer. Are you going to do some type of similar challenge this summer?

  4. I have only read Clouds of Witness. Two summers ago I went on a Lord Peter Wimsey binge. Always a great way to spend a vacation!

    I keep meaning to read Kent Haruf. Someday …


    • Kent Haruf has a beautiful writing style.
      Wish me luck with Lord Peter Wimsey, I was actually under-impressed with the first book in the series. I’m giving it a second chance here


      • They get better as they go on. I think the strongest are Murder Must Advertise, The Nine Tailors, and the Harriet Vane books. So maybe give one of those a try before you give up. I think I started with Strong Poison – it’s by no means necessary to read the “series” in order.


  5. Sounds like a good list and not too taxing on the page count (I usually select something massive then regret it!). I will be doing it but won’t finalise my list until the end of the month, still some time to get some books off the shelf …


  6. Looks pretty good. I kinda want to read Upgrade since I LOVED Dark Matter by Blake Crouch. First Men in the Moon intrigues me. The Tokyo Zodiac Murders maybe too…

  10. I’ve only read the Wells on your list, and that many years ago, though I read Verne’s precursor to that more recently. Good luck with these, and I hope you manage to get through most if not all of them!
