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?

Recap on my 20 Books of Summer 2021

Once again, 746books.com organized the 20 Books of Summer challenge from
June 1-August 31.
I’m not going to be able to finish another book today, so time has come from my recap.

I’m super happy with my results:
I ended up reading 37 books (22 in print and 15 in audio). I had read 28 in Summer 2020, so that’s a lot more.
That’s a total of 6,646 pages, actually 10,053 pages if I convert my audiobooks in print, which is an average of 109 pages/day.

Of these 37 books, 13 were from my original list!
From my original 20 titles, I DNFed 3 books and decided not to read one, as I realized it was actually horror, not thriller, and I don’t like horror as a genre.
I’m planning on reading my last 4 books from that list very soon.

A few more stats from the books I read this summer:

  • manga: 3
  • literary fiction: 3
  • historical fiction: 3
  • nonfiction: 9
  • mystery: 20

19 titles were classics.
4 audio books were from the Old Testament – I’m done listening to all the books of the Old Testament.
9 audiobooks were for my project to listen to all of Hercule Poirot,

The biggest issue is that I reviewed very few of these books. I’m planning to do short reviews of them these coming weeks.

I would like to highlight a few favorites from this list, though so many were so good:

  The Code Breaker Midaq Alley  

  Tension extrème The Madness of Crowds  

Here is the detailed file with the books I read:

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

20 Books of Summer
June 1-August 31

I loved it last year, so this will be my 2nd participation.
To be honest, this is not really a challenge, as I have already read 70 books this year, that is, an average of 14 books per month. So I shouldn’t have any problem reading 20 books. Anyway, this is a great opportunity to challenge myself to read from my TBRs (mostly physical shelf).

And it is a nice way of connecting with other book bloggers, and possibly hearing about great books I have not heard about.

So here is the file with my 20 books.
Feel free to copy the format if it’s of any help for you.

I will update it as I go along:
