#20BooksOfSummer Revisited & Revised

Well, NetGalley has really put the kibosh on my originally planned 20 ... but I'm flexible (at least with reading)! SO ... here was my original list:

(alphabetical by author's last name, not necessarily in the order they will be read)
  1.  Heather Blake - A Witch Before Dying (Wishcraft #2)
  2. Stephanie Bond - 7 Brides for 7 Bodies (Body Movers #7) 
  3. Rhys Bowen - A Royal Pain (Royal Spyness #2) 
  4. Gail Carriger - Curtsies & Conspiracies (Finishing School #2) 
  5. Deanna Chase - Engaged Off Bourbon Street (Jade Calhoun #3.5) & Angels of Bourbon Street (Jade Calhoun #4) 
  6. Agatha Christie - The Man in the Brown Suit (Christie #4/Race #1)
  7. John Connolly - The Infernals (Samuel Johnson #2) 
  8. Caroline Dunford - A Death in the Highlands (Euphemia Martin #2)
  9. Carola Dunn - The Winter Garden Mystery (Daisy Dalrymple #2)
  10. Robert Evert - Betrayal in the Highlands (The Riddle in Stone #2) 
  11. Jasper Fforde - Lost in a Good Book (Thursday Next #2)
  12. Heather Graham - Sacred Evil (Krewe of Hunters #3)
  13. Charlaine Harris - Shakespeare's Trollop (Lily Bard #4) 
  14. Carolyn Hart - Mint Julep Murder (Death on Demand #9) 
  15. Carolyn Hart - Ghost In Trouble (Bailey Ruth #3)
  16. Alice Kimberly - The Ghost and the Dead Deb (Haunted Bookshop #2)
  17. Lisa Lutz - Trail of the Spellmans (Spellmans #5)
  18. Charlotte MacLeod - Wrack and Rune (Peter Shandy #3) 
  19. Sharyn McCrumb - The Songcatcher (Ballad #6)
  20. Jenn McKinlay - Due Or Die (Library Lover's Mystery #2)

And the revised 20 Books of Summer ... which will be, actually, 25 ... or 26 ... maybe ... I hope.

CURRENTLY READING

17.  William Ritter - Jackaby (Jackaby #1)

UP NEXT (though not necessarily in this order)

18. Deanna Raybourn - A Curious Beginning (Veronica Speedwell #1)
19. M. C. Beaton - Death of a Gossip (Hamish MacBeth #1)
20. Heather Blake - A Witch Before Dying (Wishcraft #2)
21. Jenn McKinlay - Due Or Die (Library Lover's Mystery #2)
22. Carola Dunn - The Winter Garden Mystery (Daisy Dalrymple #2)
23. Caroline Dunford - A Death in the Highlands (Euphemia Martin #2)
24. Leslie Meier - Mistletoe Murder (Lucy Stone #1)
25. Leslie Meier - Candy Corn Murder (Lucy Stone #22)

(and, if a miracle happens and I make it through all of those:)

26. William Ritter - Beastly Bones (Jackaby #2)


Yep. Jumping from #1 to #22 with the Meiers ... which is something I NEVER do ... BUT Kensington gave me #22 through NetGalley and I figured it was a sign to give the series another shot. I never made it all the way through Mistletoe Murder the first time around but I think it deserves a second chance. If I can get through the 2 of them then I'll back track to the rest of the series. In order. (And by the time I make it to 22 I may have to re-read it just because it'll have been so long since the first time around!)

  1. Good for you, Karen!

    I am toying with the idea, but holding off for now as I still have a chance to complete my original twenty. But if I do this Challenge next summer, I will take a page from some of the participants and pick ten books, then a few weeks later, pick the other ten. Wiggle room, assuming I don't forget.
