10 Books of Summer 2017

10booksCathy at Cathy 746 Books has an annual challenge, 20 Books of Summer, to read twenty booksover the summer months starting on 1 June 2017 and running until 3 September 2017. The aim is to read from your TBR books already on your shelves.

There are also the options to read 15 or 10 books and as I’m very good at listing the books I want to read and very bad at sticking to the list I’m going for the 10 book option.
