2020 Summer Reading Challenge: First Round-Up

It's that time again! It's time to share all of the wonderful reviews that the participants of this year's Summer Reading Challenge (winter for those of you on the Southern Hemisphere!) have been writing. I have a whopping 38 participants this year including my husband who joined at the last minute. And I'm so proud of this eager group of classic film lovers because they have really dived into their TBR stacks with great enthusiasm. I encourage you to read every single one of these reviews (I did myself, why shouldn't you?)

Happy reading!
