Hi, Hey, Hello!
Oh look, I’m talking about books again.
Now I already have a reading list for the year and it has now approached being 3/5 of the way complete, but I have decided that I am going to start looking forward to the books that I want to try and cross of my list over the summer months.
I’m counting those as July and August, although summer is definitely making itself more known in these parts right now. It’s also because I am pretty much booked up book wise with The Infernal Devices which will probably get me through to late June/early July and so it’s starting from whenever I finish that up. I also have the dilemma that I am off for 2 weeks in August and one of them is being spent in Greece, which means I will probably have a lot of downtime and that means that I might have to make amendments accordingly.
I average at a book a week, but these are the 10 books that are on my summer reading list:
1) Nevernight – Jay Kristoff – I think I’m sacred to touch this book because it’s so pretty and the pages are sprayed black, but I keep hearing great things and so when I’m out of the Shadow World I’m going into this.
2) The Best of Adam Sharp – Graeme Simsion – I love The Rosie Project and The Rosie Effect and I am so excited to pick this up finally.
3) The House on Sunset Lake – Tasmina Perry – I feel like this will be a holiday read, it just has that kind of vibe.
4) The Muse – Jessie Burton – On the one hand I am so excited to go back to Burton’s writing style. On the other I was a tad let down by her first book so I don’t know how I feel about this going in.
5) Florence Grace – Tracy Rees – Again probably a holiday read.
6) The Secret – Kathryn Hughes – Having 3 books planned for a one week holiday is totally normal right? I’m almost concerned that 3 won’t be enough…
7) The Hope Family Calendar – Mike Gayle – I don’t know why this feels like a summer read, but I have put it on the list.
8) Women – Charles Bukowski – Time to try and decide what my opinion is on Bukowski once and for all. Almost 2 years after I was presented with this dilemma.
9) Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them – JK Rowling – I need to go back to the wizarding world for a little bit. I miss it.
10) Brideshead Revisted – Evelyn Waugh – Gotta have a classic in there somewhere.
And those are the books that I want to try and read over the course of July and August. I’m not too sure what order they will be read in, or even they will all be read during that time period. I mean they will all be read by the end of the year anyway, I just want to have a better idea of what books I am going to read because I find that once I finish a book I feel overwhelmed by all the other books that I have left to read and never know how to pick one.
Now I have an idea of what my next 10 books are going to be. And then I will be left with 10/11 books for the rest of the reading challenge.
It’s starting to feel less like a mountain.
