Summer Reading List: 2012 Ed.


Summer: a time for the freedom of being home from a long hard haul at University, a time for internships, for new experience, for beach escapades, upbeat music, and, of course, a long, demanding list of both challenging and light reads.

Now that I’m finally home from college, and done with finals, forgive me for the long absence, I have time to tackle my summer reading list, and share it with the internet!

From top left:

  • The Family Fang by Kevin Wilson
    Over-the top artsy parents try to raise their kids by their screwed-up rules. **
  • A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket
    Orphans battle mysterious circumstances to return to normal lives. PREQUEL COMES OUT IN OCT. :)
  • Game of Thrones Series by George R.R. Martin
    A battle for the throne, with twists and surprises.
  • The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
    Librarian travels through time while his wife waits at home.
  • Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Truman Capote
    Audrey Hepburn was in the film counterpart. Enough said.
  • Emma by Jane Austen
    Classic Austenian love story. Girl + Boy + Family Dynamic = perfect summer romance story.
  • On the Road by Jack Kerouac
    Young adults take a road trip to find themselves.
  • Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
    Quirky and creative Lola falls in love with a dashing neighbor. YA fluffy, girly Lit at it’s finest.

    **All reviews were written before the consumption of the novels. They are just furtive, short, quasi-educated, and simple guesses on what I think the novels will tell. Full reviews, that are a lot less stupid, will be posted (hopefully) at the end of finishing each novel, or series.
