It makes me very happy to type this so here goes
CHALLENGE COMPLETE!!!! Wahoo!!!
The fabulous challenge, wonderfully hosted each year by the lovely Cathy at 746Books, is always a blast to take part in and this year I didn’t think I was going to finish my 20 books, but with the help of the heatwave that made it too hot for me to want to do anything other than read, I got there with a few days to spare!! And I stuck rigidly to my list this year and found some wonderful new favourite books amongst them so that’s always the wonderful bonus to this challenge!!
Now I just need Cathy to run this challenge throughout the year and I might be able to make better inroads on the obscene TBR pile!!
Here’s a quick look back at the 20 Books that made 2022 a successful, if a little too hot, Summer for me!
