Once again, 746books.com organized a special challenge:
20 Books of Summer
June 1-August 31
Summer is already over so it’s time to see how it went for this challenge.
I’m happy with the amount of books I read:
I reached 20 books on July 28, and ended up reading 28 books.
These were not necessarily the 20 I had lined up, I had to adjust to urgent books coming my way for review.
Unfortunately, I only reviewed 6 of these.
And I was planning to connect with participants of this challenge, which I didn’t do much at all, by lack of time.
Out of these 28, 15 books were in print, and 13 in audio (6 of these were Bible books)
12 were mysteries/thrillers
Books I especially liked?:
scratch that, there are too many!!
I will just highlight four books that were different, types of revelations:
Or What You Will:
An amazing author, totally new to me.
Great structure, so many references
VERDICT: Unique fantasy love letter to the Renaissance. Luscious!

If You Cross The River:
I got this in 2019, why did I wait so long to read it?
Incredible writing. I devoured it in no time
wow, certainly one of my favorites of the year so far.
VERDICT: Both beautiful and heart-wrenching. And of course, a must for all birders.

Killer, Come Back to Me
BIG revelation, I didn’t even know he had written crime fiction. Did you?
And he is so so good at it!
So here is the file with my 28 books.
Did you participate?
