10 Books of Summer

Many thanks to Cathy at 746 Books for organising this summer challenge again. It runs from Wednesday June 1st to Thursday 1st of September and the challenge is to read, whatever and however many we choose.

With the option to read 20, 15 or 10 books I’ve opted for the smallest number and am using it as the excuse to read some of the books that I see reviewed but never find the time for, so all in all I’m hardly challenging myself at all, but that still doesn’t mean I’ll succeed!

  1. Murder at the Vicarage by Agatha Christie
  2. Summerwater by Sarah Moss
  3. The Sealwoman’s Gift by Sally Magnusson
  4. The South by Colm Tóibín
  5. The Cornish Coast Murder by John Bude
  6. Princes in the Land by Joanna Cannan
  7. The Lost Daughter by Elena Ferrante
  8. Mr Fox by Barbara Comyns
  9. Much Dithering by Dorothy Lambert
  10. Father by Elizabeth von Arnim

I’m looking forward to all of these, although any of them could change as the whim of summer takes over and much dithering becomes more than the title of a book!

  1. Good luck! I’ve read a few of these and particularly enjoyed The Sealwoman’s Gift and The Murder at the Vicarage. I’ll look forward to hearing about the others.

    1. Thanks Helen, good to know about The Sealwoman’s Gift – I’ve had it on my shelf for years and something’s always stopped me from picking it up!


  2. I really liked The Sealwoman’s Gift and I’ve also read and enjoyed The Princes in the Land and Father, so I can predict a good reading summer for you here! I’m not making my list till the last minute as I do it from the oldest reaches of my TBR and might still take another book or two off that before the end of the month!

    1. I don’t know what’s stopped me from reading The Sealwoman’s Gift, I’ve had it for years so I’m glad you recommend it. I’m looking forward to your list, you’ve still got a couple of days to go!

  3. I’ve read just two of these – The Murder at the Vicarage which is one of my favourite Christies, and A.N Other, which I won’t name because I hated it and abandoned it, so I don’t want to risk colouring your view before you read it! Looks like an entertaining list – have fun!
