Last year, I participated in 20 Books of Summer, an annual reading event hosted by Cathy @ 746 Books, for the first time. I was able to finish only 10 books for the event but enjoyed taking part in it and so I am participating in it this year too.
The event asks you to select, read, and review 20 books in the three months of June, July, and August. You can have more than 20 books in your list and you can change the books mid-way. So it’s a low-stress reading event.
Here are the books I have selected, a few of them from the list last year which I never got to reading. To have a little variety, I have made a list of 30 books.
