Wait, what? It’s All About Books is joining in on the 20 Books Of Summer fun even though in Argentina it’s far into autumn right now?! Well yes, I just couldn’t resist joining the challenge again as I thought it would be an excellent opportunity to both read more backlist titles as well as maybe forget about the upcoming cold winter months for a bit… The 20 Books of Summer Challenge is hosted by Cath and runs between June 1st and September 1st. The aim is to read and review either 10, 15 or 20 books, and of course I will be going for the full amount as I like to torture myself. xD

I’ve learned my lesson and I’m not going to make it more difficult this year by not allowing ARCs, although I’m going to try and make it to 20 books without them… We’ll see how things go I guess? The list below is made up entirely out of non-ARCs though: backlist titles belonging to a bunch of different genres with a few 2023 releases to spice things up… I will probably end up swapping at least some books later on though haha.

I’ve decided to put together a separate progress report post that will be posted at the end of each month.
