Tentative TBR List for 10 Books of Summer 2022

Cathy of 746 Books is hosting the 20 Books of Summer challenge once again! Her announcement post is here. For a book to count it must be entirely read and reviewed during the months of June, July, or August. Other than that, the rules are pretty flexible. Participants are expected to share a list of books you intend to read at the beginning of the summer, but you can change which books are on it at any time. You may also change your goal partway through. I’ve decided to take on half of the challenge and hope to read and review ten books this summer.

Tentative Ten Books of Summer Challenge List

  1. Crescendo by Allen Cheney Nonfiction, Memoir, Theology(?)
  2. Aggressively Happy by Joy Clarkson Nonfiction
  3. Once I Knew by Victoria Lynn Fantasy (but without magic – I’m greatly looking forward to this!)
  4. Marilla of Green Gables by Sarah McCoy Historical Fiction
  5. Caroline: Little House, Revisited by Sarah Miller Historical Fiction
  6. You Are Not Your Own by Alan Noble Nonfiction
  7. Gilead by Marilynne Robinson Literary/Historical Fiction
  8. The Dressmaker’s Secret by Kellyn Roth Historical Fiction
  9. The Librarian of Boone’s Hollow by Kim Vogel Sawyer Historical Fiction
  10. Kiera by Kate Willis Christian Dystopian Fiction

This challenge is on top of at least 3 others that I hope to participate in this summer. First is my library’s Summer Reading program, which for adults just asks that you read 20 hours over the months of June and July. Then there is the Louisa May Alcott Reading Challenge hosted by Tarissa of In the Bookcase, which runs through the month of June. Finally, there will be either Jane Austen July or Austen in August. Different bloggers host similar Austen-related challenges in consecutive months, and I’m not sure at this point which will fit my reading schedule better.

Are you participating in any bookish challenges this summer?

Until the next chapter,

Jana

  1. Good Luck, Jana! I am doing 20 books of Summer – I am hoping to read 20 books with the word Summer in the title. I always do my own, Christmas in July – where I try to read as many Christmas Books as I can during July. I am still waffling about Read Series in a Month for June, but not sure about it yet. Very busy for sure!

    1. Hey Lily! There’s a short answer and a long answer 😅 The short answer is it’s part of the template that I use.

      The long answer: So first of all, make sure I’m understanding what you are referring to by blog post archives, because there are multiple correct answers lol. If you mean the home page that shows an infinite scroll of my blog posts: on the “Customize” screen > Homepage Settings tab, just make sure “Your latest posts” is selected instead of “A static page.” The theme I use is called Baskerville, and it automatically formats post previews to show the featured image and like buttons. (If you have questions about setting a featured image, let me know and I can walk you through that as well). On this screen you should also see the option to “Customize buttons” on the post preview itself, which lets you choose which social buttons you want to show up.

      If by archive you meant the “Book Reviews by Date Posted,” it’s pretty similar. When customizing the menu, I added a link to the “Category” of “Book Review.” This tells it to look for everything that I have tagged as “book review” and it shows up as a preformatted blogroll, so again it’s built into the template to show the featured image and like buttons.

      I hope this helps! If anything doesn’t make sense or if you would like to do a more thorough walk-through, send me a message through the “submissions” tab and I can email you screen shots of each step. Good luck!

    1. I think so, too! I’ve tried this challenge in the past, and I think I ended up reading all that I wanted to but I didn’t keep up with the reviews. Fingers crossed for more consistency this summer!
