I absolutely love to read books. I can remember spending my summers as a kid going to the library and taking out every book imaginable. Since I started University my spare time for reading books has been eaten up by reading textbooks and academic papers. Now that classes are done and I’ve had some time to put away my school things for the summer, it’s time to break out my reading books! I’ve listed below my current summer reading list. Some of these are new books, and some are just books I really love or want to re-read. This list will probably grow as the summer progresses since I’m sure I’ll be making a trip to the bookstore sometime this summer.
1) Perfect Scoundrels by Ally Carter – I’ve read the first two books in the Heist Society series, and I’m looking forward to reading this next book (#3).
2) The Name Of The Wind by Patrick Rothfuss – This is the first book in the Kingkiller Chronicles. I’ve actually read this book a few times before, but it’s one of my favourites so I’d like to read it again this summer. I’m still impatiently waiting for the third book from this series to come out.
3) Anna Karenina by Leo Toldstoy – I like reading some of the more classic novels once in a while. This is a book that I’ve started before, but life got busy and I never quite finished it.
4) The Luxe by Anna Godbersen – This is a completely new book for me. I picked it up because I was told it was like the Gossip Girl series (the books not the TV show). I’m looking forward to giving this book a try.
5) The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald – My grade 11 English class studied this book with a few other novels, but unfortunately I was placed in a different novel group and never got to read this one. I’m really looking forward to checking out what this book has to offer.
6) A Game Of Thrones by George R. R. Martin – I have tried to read this book a few times, but I found if you don’t give the novel your full attention you get confused and mixed up with all the different story lines and people. Now that I have the time to give this novel, hopefully I’ll be able to enjoy the story more.
Do any of you have suggestions for books to add to my summer reading list?
