Wrapping Up #20BooksOfSummer

20 15 Books of Summer, hosted by Cathy @ 746 Books

I started the “20” Book challenge with a list of 16 books and a goal of reading 15 between June 1st and September 3rd.* So… How did I do?

  1. The Doctor and the Kid by Mike Resnick – READ & Reviewed!
  2. Fall of Man in Wilmslow: A Novel of Alan Turing by David Lagercrantz – READ & Reviewed!
  3. The Burglar Caught by a Skeleton And Other Singular Tales from the Victorian Press by Jeremy Clay – READ & Reviewed!
  4. The Floating Light Bulb by John Gaspard (Eli Marks #5) – READ & Reviewed!
  5. World of Trouble by Ben H. Winters (The Last Policeman #3) – READ & Reviewed!
  6. Heaven’s Ditch: God, Gold, and Murder on the Erie Canal by Jack Kelly – READ & Reviewed!
  7. The Science of Illusions by Jacques Ninio – READ & Reviewed!
  8. Thieves, Rascals and Sore Losers: The Unsettling History of the Dirty Deals that Helped Settle Nebraska by Marilyn Coffey – READ & Reviewed!
  9. Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne – READ & Reviewed!
  10. Lizzie: The Letters of Elizabeth Chester Fisk 1864-1893 by Rex C. Myers (Editor) – READ & Reviewed!
  11. The Perfect Storm: A True Story of Men Against the Sea by Sebastian Junger – READ & Reviewed!
  12. The Hound of the Baskervilles by Arthur Conan Doyle – READ!
  13. Memoirs and Confessions of a Stage Magician by Donald Brandon & Joyce Brandon – There is no reason I shouldn’t finish this by Friday. My review is scheduled for next week.

The rest of the list and other notes:

  • Lord of the Dead by Tom Holland – Didn’t get to this at all.
  • Summerland by Hannu Rajaniemi – DNF
  • God’s War by Kameron Hurley – DNF
  • I also read four other book that weren’t on my list.

So, that’s like 17-ish books total for the summer! (Plus 40 short stories.)


The Perfect Storm: A True Story of Men Against the Sea World of Trouble (The Last Policeman, #3) The Floating Light Bulb (An Eli Marks Mystery Book 5)

* I’m posting this “wrap-up” a little early. Thanks to Cathy @ 746 Books, 20 Books of Summer has filled my least favorite season with great reading, but Sept 1st begins my *most* favorite season. There are several events I’m looking forward to diving into on the 1st.


Writer, publisher. Hobbies include reading, studying magic & illusions from a historical/theoretical perspective, and playing ultimate frisbee.
