Not doing very well with my goal of reading books with #SummerintheTitle this summer. I‘ve only read one! Here‘s what‘s left for August. #summerreading

marleed I‘ve been trying to read the summer books on my shelves,as well. I think I‘ll need to extend my summer reading well into September ;) 1y

Summer of '69 | Elin Hilderbrand
post image
Pickpick

A fun read set on Nantucket & Martha‘s Vineyard during the eventful summer of 69.
I enjoyed this story of a family and it‘s 3 generations of strong New England women, set against the backdrop of historic events. As everything changes around them, these women are finding their place in the world. Secrets are shared, friendships are made, heartbreaks endured and summer romances blossom. The chapter titles are fun too -song titles from the era! 🎶💕

The Greengage Summer | Rumer Godden
post image

One last #summerinthetitle for me. This one was mentioned by @LeahBergen and it was on my shelf so I had to pick it up and before long I read the whole thing (again, I read it years ago). Definitely worth the reread. I love Rumer Godden, fiction and memoir. Thanks for making me do it, Leah! 😉

LeahBergen I wholeheartedly enjoyed it! (and was surprised at how dark(ish) the ending was 😆). 2y
LeslieO @LeahBergen Me, too! (And I read it before.) Up next China Court, which I haven‘t read before. I was surprised to discover I only own 3 Goddens. I read so many, years ago. I guess that‘s when I was a library user. (edited) 2y

Finished my personal summer challenge to read books from my shelves with the word “summer” in the title. Here‘s the final account. Still have 3 or 4 left for next summer! #summerreading #summerinthetitle #buzzwordbookathon

BennettBookworm What a clever challenge! 2y
LeslieO @BennettBookworm It was so fun! And 7 backlist titles off my TBR feels like an accomplishment. 2y

Took me awhile to get into this one but it all came together in the end. Glad I stuck with it. #summerreading #summerinthetitle

Palimpsest I love scented geraniums. I have a rose one and it‘s my favorite plant. 2y
LeslieO @Palimpsest mine is red. Rose sounds pretty! 2y

I don‘t think I‘ve ever read this many books in one month. Three with summer in the title.

squirrelbrain Oh @TrishB you *are* naughty.... heads off to Amazon to spend more money....! 3y
TrishB @squirrelbrain who can resist a book for 99p 😁 (definitely not me!). 3y
squirrelbrain Me either @TrishB ! Although, I‘m very surprised.... according to my spreadsheet I‘ve only bought 17 99p Kindle books this year - I expected it to be a lot more! #spreadsheetgeek 3y
TrishB @squirrelbrain @Cinfhen I foolishly went away and counted and have brought 113 #99ponkindle books this year! But that‘s not bad in 7 months she says. 3y
Cinfhen Hahahahaha HILARIOUS @TrishB 😂🙌🏻❤️ 3y
Cinfhen Do I dare go count...I‘m definitely more than @squirrelbrain but less than @TrishB 3y
squirrelbrain @TrishB 😲 although in my defence I have been trying *not* to buy any books! Eagerly awaiting the results from @Cinfhen 🤣 3y
Cinfhen 34 #KindleDailyDeals since January 1, 2020 @TrishB @squirrelbrain not too bad but I probably bought another 20 #AudibleDailyDeals 🙈 3y
Cinfhen Still.... no where as close to @TrishB !!!!!! 3y
TrishB I excuse myself by saying it‘s less than a posh coffee a day (which I don‘t drink!) 😁😁 3y
squirrelbrain I don‘t drink coffee either @TrishB so that‘s a poor excuse! 🤣 3y
squirrelbrain @Cinfhen - we‘re definitely not as bad as @TrishB ! 3y
Cinfhen I do like the posh coffee @TrishB @squirrelbrain but I haven‘t had one since Coronavirus outbreak 😝 3y
