I saw this fun challenge on 746Books’s blog to share a list of 20 (or 15, or 10) books to read over the three months of Summer (June, July, August) and I thought it would be fun to join in.
Last week I shared 10 Romances I Want To Read This Summer. But when I really think of Summer, I think of classics. It takes me back to my school days when I would normally be given a book to read for English. So I’ve just always associated classics with Summer.
So I wanted this list to be mostly classics, but there are a few non-fiction as well as I’m really enjoing those at the moment.
