Twenty Books of Summer Wrap-Up


Many thanks again to Cathy at 746 Books. for hosting this event! I had a lot of fun with it again this year. Even though I didn’t finish every book on my initial list, I did get through a lot of them and I read a lot of other fun books besides these. 🙂

Here’s my list for this year’s challenge, let’s see how I did:

Physical Books

  • The Shores of Spain by J. Kathleen Cheney
  • The Waking Land by Callie Bates
  • Written in Red by Anne Bishop
  • Sooner or Later Everything Falls into the Sea by Sarah Pinsker
  • The Many-Colored Land by Julian May


  • The Obsidian Tower by Melissa Caruso
  • The Death of the Necromancer by Martha Wells
  • A Conspiracy of Truths by Alexandra Rowland


  • In the Garden of Iden by Kage Baker
  • Vita Nostra by Marina and Sergey Dyachenko
  • Leviathan Wakes by James S. A. Corey
  • Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik
  • The Spirit War by Rachel Aaron
  • Valor’s Choice by Tanya Huff
  • The Queen’s Road by R. S. Belcher

I didn’t finish any one category of books but I did good at making progress with all formats. Since several of these were r/fantasy bingo picks for me I made progress with that as well! More importantly, I enjoyed a lot of great books. 🙂

Favorite reads:

  • Sooner or Later Everything Falls into the Sea by Sarah Pinsker – this was such a fantastic collection. It’s rare that I enjoy every story in a collection or anthology but these were all amazing in their own ways.
  • Written in Red by Anne Bishop – this one had been in my TBR pile pretty much since it was released! So glad I used this as an opportunity to read it because I think it’s going to be one of my new favorite series!
  • The Obsidian Tower by Melissa Caruso – I had a bit of a rough start with this one and had to set it down for a bit until I was in the mood again, but I’m soooo glad I picked it up again because I absolutely loved this book. What a ride! I loved the complexity of the various plot threads and the way they were woven together and I really fell in love with the main character as well. Can’t wait for the next one in this series!

And that about wraps things up! Thanks again to Cathy for hosting this and looking forward to next year!
