Summer Reading Challenge 2020

Hey there! I hope you’re having a great day! It is unbelievably hot outside today, so I thought it was the perfect day for this post and challenge!

Hundreds & Thousands of Books Summer Reading Challenge 2020

This is Hundreds & Thousands of Books first original book tag, and I hope many of you will join! Let’s take a look at the rules and the challenge:

The Rules:

  • Link to the original tag’s creator: Hundreds and Thousands of Books. Please don’t let all the squinting at my laptop screen to make the graphics flop!
  • Thank whoever tagged you and link back to their post (or the original one if you just want to give it a go).
  • Tag as many people as you want to participate
  • Then get to reading…
  • Borrow, buy, ebook, steal books that fit the descriptions. Don’t worry if you can’t read all 9 before the summer is over – although you have until the 22nd September 🙂
  • Post at the end of the challenge how you got on!

The Challenge:

My Possible Choices:

Doesn’t this look fun? I’m already planning my books and have a few in mind. Here are some of the books I’m debating:

A Book Released in 2020:

I’m thinking either Midnight Sun or Between Savage Tides. These are my most anticipated upcoming releases, and I plan to read both.

A Book on My WTR for Ages:

For this, I want to do either Ash Princess or An Ember in the Ashes. They’ve both been on my WTR for a while, though Ash Princess has been on longer.

A Book Set in Space:

Definitely Aurora Burning! I enjoyed the first book and am on the wait list at the library for this one. Fingers crossed I’ll get it soon!

A Book Set Abroad:

I’m not sure about this one yet. Maybe Something Strange and Deadly, maybe a historical romance that takes place abroad. I’m still debating…

A Graphic Novel:

Ok – not a huge reader of graphic novels, so I have no clue what to choose for this one. Help me out. Which graphic novel would you recommend?

A Book by a Trans/Non-Binary Author

I’m thinking I Wish you All the Best or Cemetery Boys. I want to read both and have heard amazing things about them. Right now, I’m leaning toward Cemetery Boys.

A Book Set in the Past:

All Scot and Bothered is the perfect choice for this one. It’s a historical romance, though I’m not sure on the exact time period. Definitely in the past though!

A Famous Fantasy Book:

I recently started House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas, which is super popular this year. I read about a third of it before I stopped to do a buddy read of Six of Crows (which is beyond amazing!!!!). So, I’m thinking I’ll revisit House of Earth and Blood for this challenge!

A Classic:

I taught high school English for almost 20 years and have read my share of classics. However, I might do a re-read of Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca. I’ve read the book several times and love it.


I might re-read Pride and Prejudice. This is another favorite classic that I like to re-read from time to time.

Which do you think I should read – Rebecca or Pride and Prejudice?

I nominate:

Anyone who wants to participate! I’d love to see your book choices! 🙂

  1. This is a fun idea! I’m looking forward to reading Midnight Sun! Even though I have pretty low expectations for it, I’m still planning on getting it as soon as possible. I have never read Rebecca, but I plan to. I also could use a good Jane Austen re-read of all her books. It’s been awhile since I’ve read any of them.
