Every summer, I sign up to 20 Books of Summer hosted by Cathy of 746 Books. This is a casual challenge to read and review your backlog, with flexible TBRs and a range of targets, which suits me perfectly as summer tends to be when I hit a slump. So how am I getting on at the midway mark?
20 Books of Summer is an annual challenge hosted by Cathy of 746 Books. This is all about reading and reviewing your backlog over the summer – just set a target of 10, 15 or 20 books and declare a TBR (you can always change it later). In spite of 2021 being my year of no goals, I’m taking part as usual with an achievable goal of 15 (which is what i said last year, then spent the summer rereading instead, ahem).
My reading has been all over the place this year – I read nearly as many pages in February as I did in March and April put together – so committing to a reading challenge is arguably a daft idea. But I can never resist Cathy’s call for 20 Books of Summer, and this year is no different!
I sometimes hear fellow bloggers complain that they struggle to finish series, and I think ‘ah, what a shame’ and ‘huh, I don’t do that’. And then Caitlin of Realms of My Mind devised the Great Series Read Project to tackle all the series she wants to finish and I realised… I’ve been kidding myself.
Blink and before you know it you’re nearly three-quarters of the way through the year. That means we’re at the point that I should probably start worrying about filling my dance card, doesn’t it? Let’s take a look…
September is here, and 20 Books of Summer is officially over (even if I’m hoping summer itself may linger a few more weeks). So, how did I get on?
Summer is well and truly here, time to slow down and read all the books. It’s also time for one last round of fantasy suggestions to help those taking part in Annemieke’s Dancing with Fantasy and Sci-Fi reading challenge!
Fancy a dance through one of my favourite genres? It’s past time I chimed in with the rest of my suggestions for Annemieke’s fantasy and sci-fi reading challenge to help you find some great SF reads…
It’s been three months (where did they go? Have you seen them? Could you show them the way home?) since I last checked my Dancing with Fantasy and Sci-Fi score card, so I think it’s past time I checked in to see how I’m doing at marking off my dances.
When I’m whinging that I’m tired and too busy at work to stay on top of my reviews, you’d think the answer would be to call a hiatus and take a breather. But then I hear Cathy call that 20 Books of Summer is kicking off, and I can’t help myself…
Okay, we’re a couple of months into the year and I start a new job tomorrow (eek), so it seems like a good time to take stock, break out an image editing tool, and see how my dance card is looking for Dancing with Fantasy and Sci-Fi!
No, I’m not procrastinating about anything in particular, why do you ask?
I heard on the grapevine that it’s Fantasy February – so that seems like a good reason to crack on with my first batch of fantasy recommendations for Annemieke’s Dancing with Fantasy and Sci-Fi reading challenge!
I signed up to Annemieke’s fantasy and sci-fi reading challenge, because I couldn’t resist a spot of book bingo to help me pick my next read. If you’ve been tempted to dig deeper into genre reads but didn’t know where to start, this might be the challenge for you!
I told myself I wasn’t going to set any challenges for 2019 beyond a reading goal and my […]
