With one thing and another, I’ve found my blogging a bit challenging of late, and although I will be bringing my crime reviews up to date, I feel…well…a bit crime’d out. My reading soul is crying out for some fictional fodder so aside from the reading commitments I have over the next couple of months, I’m going to tackle the 20 Books of Summer Challenge again, the brainchild of the brilliant Cathy at 746 Books.

You’re entirely free to choose 5, 10, 15, 20 books- the choice is yours, to be read between 1st June and 3rd September. I’ll be tweeting my reviews via my blog using the #20BOOKSOFSUMMER, and via @cathy746books  but check out the link above for other social media info, and to look at the other participants’ choices too! I’ve seen some cracking lists, containing many books that have piqued my interest over the years too.  

 I think I managed 10 last time, but dodgy eye aside, I am proper going for it this time, and have raided my bookshelves for 20 ‘I will read this someday’ books, which have tarried long enough in the to-be-read mountain…

So in no particular order, here they are…

  • Richard Wight- Native Son
  • Olaf Olafsson- Absolution
  • Michael Ignatieff- Charlie Johnson In Flames
  • Paul Lynch- Red Sky Morning
  • Walker Percy- Lancelot
  • Michael Pitre- Fives and Twenty-Fives
  • Linda Olsson- Let Me Sing You Gentle Songs
  • Zoe Duncan- The Shifting Pools
  • Christopher Hibbert- Angels of Detroit
  • Matt Gallagher- Youngblood
  • Paula Coccoza- How To Be Human
  • Kyo Maclear- Birds Art Life Death
  • Theodore Brun- A Mighty Dawn
  • Denis Theriault- The Peculiar Life of a Lonely Postman
  • Sarah Hall- The Carhullan Army
  • Nadim Safdar- Akram’s War
  • Connor O’Callaghan- Nothing On Earth
  • Jonas Hassen Khemiri- Everything I Don’t Remember
  • Laura Lindstedt- Oneiron
  • Eowyn Ivey- To The Bright Edge of the World

Happy days!
