⭐️ 10-ish Books of Summer 2017

Hosted by Cathy @ 746 Books

The 20 Books of Summer runs from June 1st to September 3rd. During this period of time, I have two trips to California, possibly a trip to Colorado, and WesterCon scheduled. Eric is planning on (re)launching the PHYSIC series in Sept/Oct, which means a lot of reading/editing/formatting in the next three months. How much reading will I be able to get done? I don’t know.

I do know that I’ve had a good time with #20BooksOfSummer in the past and, as Brona pointed out, half the fun is making the TBR stack. I am going to cheat, just a little. I have a couple of in-progress books on my list, some of which I doubled up as “Double Features.” All the remaining percentages add up to ~4 books. I’m also going to shoot for finishing 10 books from a list of 15. Current: 2/10

  1. Current Reads Double Feature: The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher (had 28% remaining) – REVIEWED / The Lost World by Arthur Conan Doyle (had 50% remaining) – REVIEWED
  2. The Map of Time by Félix J. Palma (83% remaining… still over 500 pages!)
  3. Short Story Collection Double Feature: Shatterday by Harlan Ellison (72% remaining) / The Janus Tree and Other Stories by Glen Hirshberg (53% remaining)
  4. Magical Double Feature: Adelaide Herrmann: Queen of Magic by Adelaide Herrmann (51% remaining) / Learned Pigs and Fireproof Women by Ricky Jay (63% remaing)
  5. Believe Me: A Memoir of Love, Death, and Jazz Chickens by Eddie Izzard – an ARC
  6. Club Deception by Sarah Skilton – an ARC
  7. The Last Days of Night by Graham Moore – an ARC that isn’t so advanced at this point. – REVIEWED
  8. Crossings by Jon Kerstetter – an ARC
  9. Kings of Broken Things by Theodore Wheeler – a rare pre-order! Should arrive in August.
  10. Salvation on Sand Mountain: Snake Handling and Redemption in Southern Appalachia by Dennis Covington
  11. Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Vern
  12. Love and Mr. Lewisham by H. G. Wells
  13. The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle (added 6/15)
