Summer Reading Wrap Up | Did I Read the Books on My Summer TBR?

Summer is officially coming to an end, so I thought it would be fun to look back at my summer TBR and see how I did. I also want to share some stats and my favourite books of the summer.

There were 10 books on my summer TBR, and I managed to read five of them and DNF one. The five I read were The Heart Principle, Redemptor, The Remains of the Day, My Contrary Mary, and Ayesha at Last. I sadly DNFed Accidentally Engaged, which is a book I was really excited about but just could not get into.

In my mind, June, July, and August are the summer months, so I won’t include any of the books I read so far in September when talking about my favourite books of the summer!

I read 36 books this summer for a total of 13,093 pages and an average rating of 4.09, which is amazing!

Summer Favourites

It feels as though I have talked about these eight books so much over the last couple months and I am sure I will continue to feature them! I am realizing that all but one (The Remains of the Day) are 2021 releases… I really do need to start focusing more on my backlist books!

  1. Looks like you had a good reading summer!
    I reslly want to read A Psalmfor the Wild-Built, The Jasmine Throne and Redemptor!

  2. You’ve done better than me, I’ve only read two books on my summer TBR (though I’ve almost finished a third). My fave was a nautical historical adventure called HMS Expedient.

  3. You did so much better than me, I don’t even think that I managed to read one book that I put on my Summer TBR! I really want to read The Heart Principle and It Happened One Summer as I seem to be on a bit of a romance kick at the moment, so I’m glad to see that you really liked them!

  4. There were so many! Ace of Spades was definitely great, but also The Good Children by Roopa Farooki, The Charm Offensive by Alison Cochran, The Magnificent Sons by Justin Myers!
