#20BooksofSummer: July Update


Here are July’s reads, there are just six with five posts made, this leaves me with seven books to read by 3 September. I’m over half way and, phew, still on track.

I know Where She Is


Strangers on a Bridge


Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot




Dead of Night


7 (7.5) Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle


I have yet to post my thoughts on this book but will be doing so in the next few days.

What about you?

Have you been doing this challenge? How is it going?  Are you enjoying the challenge? I would love to hear from you. Do leave a comment below.

  1. You’re doing great! I didn’t join in this year, since I always fail badly by being distracted by books not on my list, so I’m very impressed at your progress… keep up the good work! 😉


    • Thanks so much FictionFan. I know what you mean about distractions, having blog tours and reviews has certainly kept me on track. Even then one or two have been swapped from original list; August list is also a bit different. Luckily the rules for this challenge are relaxed about that 😉. Perhaps you’ll be on board next year……

  2. Rats–I didn’t know this challenge was going on! Think it’s too late to join? 😉 I’m probably up to a whoppping, oh, let’s see…six books. Great list btw–I look forward to your thoughts on these you’ve posted.


    • It’s a terrific challenge. Relaxed and gives the options of 10, 15 or 20 books over the period. Check out the link to Cleo’s blog.
      Thanks for your kind words, I hope you enjoy 😊

      • Goodness, totally lost track of this thread. Sorry about that. I will check it out on Cleo’s blog–maybe there is a fall challenge? 🙂

        • Well, I’m catching up on my posts at the moment! And certainly no reason to apologise to me 😀 since I’m the one whose behind! Not sure that there’s a fall/autumn challenge on her blog, but maybe somewhere else?


  3. I’d be interested to see what you thought of ‘I Know Where She Is’ as I’ve read that one. Can’t say my reading has been as successful but I’m hoping to work my way through my list in the next couple of weeks. ☺️
