10, 15 or 20 Books of summer is hosted by Cathy @cathy746books. You can read Cathy’s original post about it here on her blog – 746books.com
This is a slightly late post as it started on June 3rd, but I did start my first book on that day, so all is ok. 😉
The idea of 20 Books of Summer is that readers choose their books to read and enjoy them, while also reviewing over the summer dates of June 3rd to September 3rd. You can choose to read 10, 15 or 20 books. I went for the easier option of 10! so, 3 months, 10 books, here goes.
Here are the books I hope to read over this time. I am adding in a mix of paperbacks and kindle reads. Two of the books will be for blog tours and the rest are ones I have chosen myself.
So here goes with my list of 10 books I hope to read this summer. ( in no particular order). The blurb can be found using the goodreads links.
In The Swim Of Things by Tracie Banister.
A lovely chick lit summer read. If you ever wanted to be a mermaid, this is the book for you. Kyra has her perfect job, a new hunky surfer boyfriend and lives by the beach she loves. When her beach is threatened. Kyra needs to fight for it. A perfect read for the summer I think. Plus I have read a few of Tracie Bannister’s books before and enjoyed them all.
Where the Dead Fall. By M J Lee.
A page turning crime thriller. With murders, detectives and hunts for killers. This is my kind of read.
Meet Me in Cockleberry Bay. By Nicola May.
The much awaited sequel to Nicola May’s previous best seller The Corner Shop in Cockleberry Bay will be a glorious read for me. I love all of this Author’s books and I am sure this one will be no difference. I’m looking forward to seeing what Rosa and the beloved Hot the sausage dog will get up to in this book.
My review for this will be in the blog tour hosted by RachelsRandomResources.com in July, when the book will be published. Lucky me got an early read 😊.
The Chestnut Man by Soren Sveistrup
I was sent this book my my lovely friend Irena at bookdustmagic.com. Irena and many other bookbloggers have written amazing reviews for this book. I am excited to read it, but it is so long. I hope the length is necessary to the whole plot. I’m quite sure I will love it as Irena always has great recommendations.
Time of my Life by Laura Heffernan.
Another lovely easy summer read. You can just tell by the cover that this will be a perfect read for those summer evenings.
You see how I am mixing up thrillers and chick lits. I like to get a mix of gory, deceptive crime thrillers which make me hunt for the criminal. Then swap that for some really easy reads that are pure escapism.
Fixed Odds by William McIntyre
The Author of this book is a criminal defence lawyer based in Scotland. That fact alone would be enough to make me want to read this book! This book is released on July 4th and I was very lucky to get an advanced copy. I am on the blog tour for Fixed Odds when it is published.
Author Clare Chase is another of my recommended Authors. I have read quite a few of her books and loved them all. I would describe the previous books I have read as cosy mysteries. I have had this book on my kindle for a little while and don’t remember what it is about. I do have a feeling that I will love it though.
Broken Humanity by Karine Vivier
Published in January this year, this book is the debut book by Author Karine Vivier. The Author contacted me and asked if I would like to read and review her book. I like to try out new Authors, and am hoping this book will be a good one.
Will To Live by Rachel Amphlett.
You may remember this book from a previous post, whereby I got a great deal on the first 3 books in the Kay Hunter series. I have read the first books and it was fantastic. For my summer reads, I am including the next 2 books in this series. As I loved the first one, I am quite sure I will enjoy book 2 and 3 also.
One to Watch by Rachel Amphlett (book 3 Kay Hunter)
The covers are awesome and look so readable don’t they!
So that my 10 reads for summer. I think its going to be a good reading summer, with lots of good reviews to come. What books do you have planned to read this summer? Have you read any of the books I mentioned? Which do you like the sound / look of?
Here is to a good reading summer.
