As I look out the window on a very rainy Sunday, it’s nice to be able to report that I have completed the 2018 20 Books of Summer Challenge – yay me!!!
So thank you to Cathy of 746 Books for hosting yet another fabulous Summer event! My target this year was to read 20 books from my NetGalley bookshelves and, for the most part!, that is exactly what I did!! I did change a few books along the way as I found myself adding some new NetGalley finds on to the list, alongside some books that I bought myself that I just couldn’t resist reading for the challenge. I found it to be a fabulous way of kicking my butt into gear and getting some books read that had been sitting around on the virtual shelves for quite a while! Maybe there needs to be the 20 Books of Autumn & Winter challenges too to help me shift more off the ever expanding TBR piles!!
So here’s a rundown of the books that kept me entertained – click on the title for a link to my GoodReads reviews!
