Summer Reading

Gone are the days of required reading for school (unless you’re taking summer classes in which case I am so sorry) and here are the days of what is notoriously called “reading for pleasure.” Summer is definitely a time I find myself reaching for more books than usual and I tend to make a little (read: extremely overambitious) list of the books I’d like to read. This summer was no different. But as I’m a bit late to the game in posting this list–I have been absolutely pathetic in blogging of late–I’ve managed to read a few already. Those, I’ve put an asterisk next to. So lengthy intro aside, below you’ll find the books I would like to read this summer.
