SUMMER READING LIST
I guess, I'm trying to show you as many summer related things as possible, so today I have my summer reading list for y'all!
Because during school time, I haven't been reading much, I decided to read at least 10 books during this summer break. And the ones I'm planning on reading, I'm going to share with you today. There are 7 books in total, that I'm sure of reading. If you have any recommendations, than hit me in the comments!
Starting off with the one that I've actually have read - Girl Online by Zoe Sugg/ Zoella. I've been a Zoella fan for quite a long time, watched most of her videos. So when I heard she was coming up with a book, it made me honestly so excited. Then I got her book for Christmas from my best friend Kate (her blog). But I didn't quite have the time to read it until the beginning of summer.
Honestly, like I said, I'm a big fan of Zoe, but her book... not so much. It was a fast, nice read, but I just couldn't help the fact that it was far too surreal. Basically the book tells the story of a girl Penny, who with her parents and her best friend leaves for New York for Christmas break. There she meets a boy, and everything connected with him is just too impossible to happen. Too fairy tale like. I don't know maybe that's just me, but I just didn't quite like the novel. But read it for yourself, don't be discouraged by me!
A book that I'm really looking forward to reading is The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown. Since I'm going to Rome, I've decided to finally read it. I did enjoy the movie, so I'm really curious about the book.
Because it was the only book available at the library by Colleen Hoover, I've decided to borrow it. It's called Point of Retreat. STOP! As I was looking for a short summary of the book in English, it turned out that it's the second part of a series called Slammed. Good one Mary hahaa, well... don't know yet what I'm going to do about that. So yay!
Another book from my summer reading list is Dark Visions by L.J. Smith. I have actually read it like three times, but it won't stop me from reading it again. It tells the story of Kaitlyn, who is psychic. She accepts an invitation to attend the Zetes Institute, where she can study with other psychic teens. Of course she finds herself between two guys. And I won't tell you the rest. It's a long book, that reads quicker than ever.
It's Not A Summer Without You by Jenny Han is the book I have no idea what will be about. I have never read, never even heard about it. But well it has the word summer in the title and the short summary at the back of the book says... Damn it, this has to be some kind of a joke. Again it's the seccond book in the series Summer. It should be written on the cover or something. I'm very annoyed right now.
Ok, this book, I know it's good. Along For The Ride by Sarah Dessen is a book about Auden, who goes to spend her summer with her dad and his new wife. She meets a boy, who like her suffers with insomnia. I'm currently in the middle of this book and it's very good. A quick, light read, perfect for summer nights.
And finally the most exciting book, that I want to read this summer 11/22/63 by Stephen King. Last year I read the big Under The Dome novel, which was soo good. So good, that I've decided to read another book by King. I actually love how long those novels are. But basically this book is supposed to be about a teacher that travels back in time to prevent the Kennedy assassination. We shall see, I'll report back!
But now after all those fails above, I've come across The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. And it sounds interesting. If anybody has read it, please give me some opinion.
UPDATE: I have found both of the first parts for the books, you know those ones, that I didn't know were second parts. And I'm planning on reading them!
So here it is... my summer reading list. I guess I have to find/ borrow the first parts of the books, I wanted to read. Next time, I have to remember to check if it's not the second part of the series.
But other than that, I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the books, especially 11/22/63 by King.
And what are the books, you want to read during this summer?
Speak to you soon,
