TCL’s #20BooksofSummer2021 Wrapup.

This is a yearly reading challenge by Cathy @ 746 Books where bloggers commit to read (10, 15, or) 20 books over the summer, or just count the number of books they read during the summer.

This year, I decided to join in again, and committed to read at least 10 books (because I had that many ARCs for the summer months). However…

I actually finished reading a whole 20 books!


Well, that deserves a wrap-up post, don’t you think?

I have to admit that reading 20 books was a bit of a surprise for me, since this year has been one of some upheavals in my life.

And yet, as they say, she persisted!

So, without any further ado… here are the 20 books I read for this challenge, and links to all of my reviews.

  1. Ever Rest by Roz Morris.
  2. Mrs. Lorimer’s Quiet Summer (1953) by Molly Clavering.
  3. Sisters of Resistance by Christine Wells.
  4. Apricot Sky (1952) by Ruby Ferguson.
  5. Address Unknown (1938) by Kathrine Kressmann Taylor.
  6. The Personal Librarian by Marie Benedict & Victoria Christopher Murray.
  7. Curtain by Agatha Christie.
  8. Murder in Married Life (1971) by Anne Morice.
  9. Short Dog: Cab Driver Stories from the LA Streets by Dan Fante.
  10. A Funeral for an Owl by Jane Davis.

  12. Three Words for Goodbye by Heather Webb and Hazel Gaynor.

  1. I have read ALL of Fiona Davis’s books and loved them all. Her mother was in our book club and she arranged when Fiona published The Dollhouse for her to Skype with the club and visit with her “mom’s friends.”She is a great person and a fine author. I have reviewed her books on (use the search box).
    I discovered Mrs. Lorimer’s Quiet Summer this past summer, and it was one of the most calming books I’ve read…something we all need more of in these crazy times.

    1. Also Eats, Shoots, and Leaves is a book I always used with my Advanced Writing students. Did you know they have a children’s version? Instead of a gun, the panda shoots a bow and arrow, and instead of walking into a bar, he walks into a library. LOL

  2. Congratulations on completing the 20 Summer Books challenge. I do love a short-span challenge that is attainable and summer is a great time for one.
