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.
