After completing the 20 Books of Summer and 20 Books for Christmas reading challenges in 2019, I was definitely in for 2020.

20 Books for Summer is a reading challenge set up by 746 Books and has been running for many years. The idea is to set yourself a challenge to read (and review if possible) 20  books between 1st June and 31st August.

I am currently reading a lot anyway during the lockdown, but I find that by taking part in a reading challenge I make sure that I set aside time to read.

You can follow my progress on my Instagram and my new Bookstagram, and of course I will be sharing my reviews here on WordPress, Twitter and Facebook.

Read on to find out my choices. I will be reading some fiction, health and music books.

  1. Jo, I’m surprised to see I haven’t read a single one, but chick lit isn’t my go to, either. I’m looking forward to reading your reviews and adding some new stuff to my TBR. So glad to see you’re back to posting. I hope it means you’re doing better! Xx
