The 20 Books of Summer Challenge is hosted by 746 Books and runs between June 1st and September 1st. The aim is to read and review either 10, 15, or 20 books. I’ll be reading the full 20 books, and mostly ARCs. But, I’ve challenged myself to read 4 books that are not ARCs. The last 4 books are not ARCs, and are audiobooks as I do most of my personal reading via audiobook.
Are you participating in the 20 books of Summer? Have you read any of these books?
Good luck, Wendy! I like your choices. I haven’t done a reading challenge in a while, and this sounds fun! Maybe I’ll give it a go too.
I went back and forth trying to decide whether I wanted to include my ARCs or not. I ended up not, but I do have about 4 ARCs per month to read, so it will definitely make this challenge a challenge for me. 😉 I’ve only read The Bodyguard on your list, but it was one of my top 3 favorite books last year. I hope you enjoy it, as well. Several of your other books are on my tbr. Good luck!
Good luck! I know you’ll do great! I look forward to read your reviews.
A Dress of Violet Taffeta is on my radar!
20 books is ambitious! My amount of reading ebbs and flows, but I generally read more during the summer. Good luck!
Thank you, Angela! I hope I’m not too busy to get it all read
Thanks for taking part Wendy – love your choices, best of luck!
Thank you, Cathy!
I haven’t read any of these, but several are on my radar like The Bodyguard, Love on the Brain and the new Roni Loren. Dog Friendly looks pretty cute, too. Happy reading this summer! 😀
Thank you, Lark. I’m really looking forward to those you mentioned too.
Great list. Hope you enjoy them all.
Dog Friendly looks adorable! I look forward to reading your review of that one for sure.
And, wow, you’re organized about what you read and when. 🙂
Thank you, Lydia. I love dog books!
What a great challenge Wendy! I love all the books you’ve chosen and I’m going to partcipate too! Thanks for sharing about this!
Thank you, Jodie! I hope you enjoy the challenge
So pleased to see you’re joining in Wendy🙂 all the very best. As always, I’m most interested in the books with dogs on the cover!
Me too! Love those dogs
Love this collection. Thank you so much for sharing.
Great to have you join in, Wendy. I loved The Bodyguard, A Man Called Ove and Diamond Eye. I’m sure you will enjoy all your books coming up.
Thank you, Carla!
I probably should participate. 🙂 I’ve barely read anything at all this month. I hope you love all these books!
Thank you, AJ. You don’t have to do 20 books, you can do less if you want to.
I probably will participate. I know I’ll be reading more than twice that number this summer. Great choices!
I’ll be rooting for you, Tessa!
Oh good luck with this! Looks like a nice mix of books 🙂
Thank you, Greg!
Good luck with this challenge, Wendy.
Thank you, Kim!
I keep thinking about doing this and maybe I will. I am looking for a job so I don’t know how my reading will go. However, having from June 1 to September, I should be able to commit. I also NEED to make myself read A Man Called Ove this summer.
I hope we both love A Man Called Ove! I’ve heard nothing but great things about it.
Good luck Wendy! So happy you are joining in!!🤗📚💜
Thank you, Susan!
I have always had my eye on 20 Books of Summer and there are quite a few bloggers I know who always participate. It’s winter on my side of the world and someone I just can’t get myself to think in summer…
I need to start planning my years better!! You have a great selection of books to read for your challenge and I’ll keep an eye out for your reviews!
Thank you , Mareli. I would think it’s difficult to read summery books in winter!
Oooo this looks good. I am not sure I will make 20 but I might be able to make 10 🤔

You can do any amount! It’s a fun challenge too.
I really liked The Summer Place. I hope you enjoy your Summer reads. I really need to get my 20 books post sorted😳
Thank you, Janettte! I hope I enjoy The Summer Place too.
I read A Man Called Ove with my book club and enjoyed it very much. I would like to read Debbie Macomber’s book. All of your choices look like fun summer reads.
Thank you, Linda. I’m trying to keep my summer reads light and fun.
Good luck with the challenge.
Thank you, Rosie!
So many books I’m excited for are here!!
It should be a great summer for reading!
I haven’t heard of this challenge, and I think I will have to check it out. I am looking forward to reading The Bodyguard and Fake It Til You Bake It.
I loved A Man Called Ove!
I’ can’t wait to get to The Bodyguard!
