TCL’s #20BooksofSummer2022 Wrap-up.

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.

I joined in again, but although last year I read a full 20, this time I committed to read at least 10 books (because I had that many ARCs for the summer months). However…

I actually finished reading 16 books!


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

I have to admit that I was hoping to surpass 10 books this year, but I wasn’t sure I’d get past 15, especially because I finished the first book on my original list just one day before June 1st! Now, if I include the short story I read by Kate Quinn, that makes 17, but I don’t think that’s fair (but I’m okay with including a novella).

And yet, as they say, she persisted!

So, without any further ado… here are the 16 books I read for this challenge, and links to all of my reviews.

  1. Standing in the Rainbow by Fannie Flagg
  2. The Ghosts of Paris by Tara Moss

  3. For Those Who are Lost by Julia Bryan Thomas

  4. Water Weed by Alice Campbell

  5. The Click of the Gate by Alice Campbell

  6. Now in November by Josephine Johnson

  7. Demian by Hermann Hesse
  8. The Marble Staircase by Elizabeth Fair

  9. Clothes-Pegs by Susan Scarlett

  10. Zorrie by Laird Hunt

  11. Delphi by Clare Pollard

  12. The Highland Hens by Judy Leigh

  13. The Mayfair Bookshop by Eliza Knight

  14. The Forty Elephants by Erin Bledsoe

  15. Carrie Soto is Back by Taylor Jenkins Reid

  16. Véronique’s Journey by Patti Flinn

So, there you have it! My 20 16 Books of Summer 2022.

What about you? Did you read many books this summer? Did you join this year? Will you join in next year? (I think I will!)

  1. Oh well done. I set myself a low goal this year too and though I read about the same number as you overall, I only counted the ones that were on my original list.
    I tried an Elizabeth Fair last month but found it rather dull so abandoned it…..

  2. I probably won’t join because I belong to so many other things with enforced reading (that is, having to read specific books for it or read by specific times), so I prefer to leave the rest of my reading to my choice. I have read some of the books on your list, though. I reviewed Water Weed a while back, and I have read The Marble Staircase but not yet reviewed it. I also have Clothes-Pegs on my stack to read soon.
