Summer is almost here. I finally have my call schedule for July and plans are shaping up for our adventures. That also means it is time for the summer to be read list post with the Broke and the Bookish.
As a result, I am splitting the list. No lofty dreaming of 10 new books for me. 5 I have in my possession currently, 5 I will somehow acquire.
- Lone Wolf by Jodi Picoult. I love the bargain piles at Chapters. This was one of those finds. It also helps that I do find her books easy reads that make me think.
- World War Z by Max Brooks. It was on my Spring list, but it is still sitting on my bedside table unread. I need to pick it up. Need.
- This Is Your Brain On Music by Daniel Levin.Another Spring list repeat. I will read it this time, promise.
- The Little Old Lady Who Broke All The Rules by Catharina Ingelman-Sundberg. I love old people and funny books. Plus, this is one of the books I bought with my birthday gift card from my parents (Thanks!).
- And The Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini. I seem to read one of his books every summer lately. They are pretty heavy, but really well written. I am sure it will not disappoint. It is also one of my birthday books!
- Something else by Emily Giffin. She is kind of one of my summer reading go-tos. Light, easy reads.
- Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Powell. Yet another Spring TBR list repeat. I almost bought it last week, but I think I will try to borrow it from the library or something.
- Wicked and the rest of the series by Gregory Maguire. I know, another repeat. I really do want to refresh my memory and then find out what happens.
- The Maze Runner by James Dasher. I saw the preview to the movie when we went to see The Fault In Our Stars last week and it reminded me that I really wanted to read the book (especially before seeing the movie).
- The Giver by Lois Lowry. I have read other things she has written, but not this book. It is coming out as a movie too and I don’t like to see movies before I read the books. I’m not even sure if I want to see the movie, but it does make me remember that I need to read the book.
What is on your Summer to be read list?
