20 Books of Summer 2017

My 20 Books of Summer 2017 list ended up being a wee bit different from my original list, in one case that was because the book has gone walkabout, yes Sir Walter Scott’s Redgauntlet still hasn’t turned up after being ‘put away in a safe place’! I’ve given up looking for it and have resorted to reading it on my Kindle but I’m only about halfway through it.

1. London Match by Len Deighton
2. I Claudius by Robert Graves
3. Highland River by Neil M. Gunn
4. The Demon in the House by Angela Thirkell
5. The Dove of Venus by Olivia Manning
6. The Tall Stranger by D.E. Stevenson

8. Antidote to Venom by Freeman Wills Crofts
9. This Rough Magic by Mary Stewart
10. Flowers for the Judge by Margery Allingham
11. Claudius the God by Robert Graves
12. Spy Hook by Len Deighton
13. Miss Ranskill Comes Home by Barbara Euphan Todd
14. Katherine Wentworth by D.E. Stevenson

I have actually read more than 20 books throughout June, July and August, which probably says more about the weather this so called summer in the east of Scotland than anything else!

  1. A great feat–completing these 20 books in a summer. Hurrah!
    I have enjoyed your notes about each one as well.
    So what will you do for an encore for the rest of the year?
    I, for one, have not read as many books as last year, and it seems that “catching up” is not a viable option. I’m just plowing ahead and reading books I expect I’ll enjoy.

    • Judith,
      The rest of the year I’m going to be concentrating on reading my own books I think. But no doubt I’ll be seduced by some book reviews and be going to the library!

  2. Lots of good books there! I have also read more than 20 books this summer, but only managed 16 from my original list – I’m still planning to read the others eventually.
