More than halfway through my Goodreads Readers’ Challenge

We’re in July now, and I still have no idea where over half the year has gone.

However, I have been enjoying a fun reading year. I’ve already passed the halfway mark to meet my Goodreads Readers’ Challenge for 2021.

I’ve read lots of interesting novels, including some (new to me) authors and others by authors I already know and enjoy.

I try to write book reviews for some of my favorites. I’m including some of my book reviews for novels I’ve read so far this year. You can find them here below.


What the Lady Wants – Renee Rosen

The Guest List – Lucy Foley

The Flat Share – Beth O’Leary

Grown Ups – Marian Keyes

All the Lonely People – Mike Gayle

Love Stories for Hectic People – Catherine McNamara

The Chalet – Catherine Cooper

The Heatwave – Kate Riordan

The Piano Teacher – Janice Y.K. Lee

Midnight Blue – Simone van der Vlugt

The Nanny – Gilly Macmillan

Half a World Away – Mike Gayle


Happy (Summer) Reading to all!

    Plenty of good reads on that list. Well done on your challenge, I’m running a few books behind target on mine – thanks to weeks spent reading Gormenghast, huge book, tiny font!

    That’s what summer is for, isn’t it Grace? Catching up on reading! Good for you on the huge book, tiny font. I made a real grannie move, inadvertently ordering a LARGE PRINT book without realizing it. My whole family made so mcuh fun of me. Although, to be honest, it was super easy to read that mega font size! : )
