Books Of Summer


This annual challenge is run by  Cathy at 746 Books.  This year it’s taking place between June 3rd and  September 3rd.  I don’t usually participate in these because I never read fast enough to do all I set out to do. But with Game Of Thrones wrapping up, and never reading the books, I knew I wanted to. And I’ve always wanted to read the Sookie Stackhouse novels after watching True Blood but never had the chance to get to them. Fingers crossed I get at least 10 done! And if I do I’ll keep going with Sookie. Number 10 on my list? I used to watch The Real Housewives Of New York (and New Jersey) as one of my guilty pleasures. I don’t watch them very often now but Carole Radziwill was always such an interesting person I thought I’d see her wrap up of her experience on the show.

Cathy explains, the rules are simple.  Take the Books of Summer image, pick your own 10, 15 or 20 books you’d like to read and link back Cathy’s master post at 746 Books by June 3rd 2019 so she knows that you are taking part.  The rules are really flexible.  Want to swap a book? Do it. Want to change your list half way through, go for it! Deciding to drop your goal from 20 to 15? She’s fine with that.

  1. I have read all the George RR Martin and Charlaine Harris ones. I did enjoy CH but i think after book 5 she went a bit off the boil for a book or two before she found her feet. LOVED the GOT ones I really want to read them again!! Good luck x
