20 Books of Summer Reading Challenge

Cathy over at 746 Books has been hosting her fun 20 Books of Summer event for ten years now, but I only heard about it last year. Even though it's about the chillest reading challenge ever, I didn't *quite* finish it on my first go 'round. I'll do better this year!

The challenge runs from June 1 - September 1 and the aim is simple: cross books off your TBR list. You can choose to read the full 20 books or do a 15 or 10 book version or whatever you want. You can even change your challenge list at any time. The point is to perk up your summer reading with a fun, no-pressure challenge. I'm in. How about you?

Here's my tentative list of books I want to read for the challenge. Once if officially begins, I'll update my progress on this post.

1. The Women by Kristin Hannah
2. Peking Duck and Cover by Vivien Chien (available July 23, 2024)
3. Trouble at the Tangerine by Gillian McDunn
4. Things We Didn't Say by Amy Lynn Green
5. Middle of the Night by Riley Sager (available June 18, 2024)
6. Weather Girl by Rachel Solomon
7. The Comfort Crisis by Michael Easter
8. Echo by Pam Muñoz Ryan
9. The Maid by Nita Prose (re-read)
10. Nothing Else But Miracles by Kate Albus
11. A Death in Door County by Annelise Ryan
12. The Underground Library by Jennifer Ryan
13. Of Manners and Murder by Anastasia Hastings
14. Light and Air by Mindy Nichols Wendell
15. On the Edge of Daylight by Giselle Beaumont
16. Dead to Rights by Jasmine Webb
17. Why We Read: On Bookworms, Libraries, and Just One More Page Before Lights Out by Shannon Reed
18. The Mystery of Locked Rooms by Lindsay Currie
19. Sleeping Spells and Dragon Scales by Wendy S. Swore
20. The Words We Lost by Nicole Deese

I'm hoping this is a good mix of serious stuff and more lighthearted stories. We'll see. Wish me luck!



  1. Sometimes it takes me a whole year to read that many books. lol! I don't know if I could read that many but it does sound fun!

  2. Great to have you on board again Susan, best of luck!

  3. Looks like a really good mix of books! I've got The Women and The Underground Library on my summer reading list, too. :D

  4. That's my kind of reading challenge - easy and stress-free without a bunch of rules. :) I hope you'll enjoy these as you get to them!

  5. Good list! The Women was soooo good! I read/reviewed it earlier this year.

  6. I thought The Women was excellent. This is a great list!

  7. I have The Women here. I might read it this summer.

  8. The Women is INCREDIBLE! I highly recommend it.

  9. Happy reading.

  10. This sounds like such a cool reading challenge! I really need to pick the Noodle Shop Mysteries series again, and Weather Girl is fantastic. Enjoy your summer reading - your tentative list looks great.

  11. This looks like a good mix of books! I really love the Noodle Shop Mysteries and the Door County Mysteries. I have Riley Sager's books on my TBR and am really looking forward to it. Good luck with your summer reading!

  12. Good luck! These books sound good 😊 I hope that you manage to read them all at least this year if not for Summer!

    Have a great week!
