It is the 3rd September! And my Summer of taking part in the fabulous #20booksofsummer hosted by the lovely Cathy at 746 Books has come to an end! And I’m happy to report that my quest to read 20 books over the Summer period has been a success!! Wahoo!! Yay me!! Sounds like an excuse to go book shopping and treat myself to a book or two as a reward!! Like I need an excuse anyway, but I’ll use it!!!
The books I chose to read this year were those on my Kindle as I do have a tendency to hoard an e-book or a hundred, and I found this a great way to get through some of those I’d forgotten about alongside others I’d been approved for via NetGalley and that helped me keep on top of reviews there too! Win Win situation!!
So here’s a little summary of all the books that I got through over the past couple of months – click on the title if you’d like to see my GoodReads review!

And there we have it!! May have found 2 of my favourite books of 2017 already by taking part in this so am very grateful for that alone!! And with 20 less books now on my TBR pile I feel I can approach the remaining – insert obscene number of books piled up around the house – with more confidence and hope that they throw up some more fascinating stories like those I’ve uncovered over the Summer of 2017! Roll on the #20booksofsummer2018!!
