I think the challenge went well… depending on your definition of ‘well’.
The good news is that I was one book shy from 20, which I’m 100% fine with as I hit a reading slump in July and thought I was going to have abandoned this challenge.
The bad news is I only read nine books from my original list. In order to keep up with reading over the summer my TBR went falling out the window.
The books I ended up reading for the challenge (I highlighted the ones from the original TBR list):
1 The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo – Taylor Jenkins Reid
2 Fates and Fates – Lauren Groff
3 Final Girls – Riley Sager
4 My Cousin Rachel – Daphne Du Maurier
5 Sula – Toni Morrison
6 Saga Vol 6 and 7
7 Ghostly Tales
8 See What I Have Done – Sarah Schmidt
9 Sour Heart – Jenny Zhang (Kinda…)
10 The Magician King – Lev Grossman
11 Little & Lion – Brandy Colbert
12 Stay With Me – Ayobami Adebayo
13 Roughneck – Jeff Lemire
14 Dear Martin – Nic Stone
15 Red Rising – Pierce Brown
16 The Rest of Us Just Live Here – Patrick Ness
17 The Book Thief – Markus Zusak
18 The Grownup – Gillian Flynn
19 Serena – Ron Rash

Thanks to 746Books for hosting this challenge and I hope to give it another go next year.
