With school about two weeks shy of being out and summer break just over the horizon, I thought this year it would be fun to actually have a place where I not only get some good recommendations for what to read, but also make a list of those books I want to (finally in some cases) get to.
After seeing Rummanah Aasi's Summer Reading Plan, I decided she was brilliant and I too needed a list, because, after all who doesn't like checking things off a list?
So this is where I will be posting all those books I finally want to read this year but the fact is, most of them, the ones I always say I'm going to finally read, I can't remember. Call it an over taxed brain, or lack of sleep or maybe I'm just getting old, but I can't for the life of me, remember all the books I want to read this summer. So, that is where you, dear blogging friends, come in to play. Help me remember! Or better yet, just recommend me something that you've recently loved and I just must read. Sadly, more than likely I probably already own it somewhere on my kindle or bookshelf and have got forgotten about it. I should be embarrassed about that, but I'm not because there are worse things I could be spending my money on and hoarding than books right?
What I know I want to try this summer? This series by none other than writing duo Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. I've heard so many great things about it, I think it is about time I try it.
My good friend Heidi at Rainy Day Ramblings recommended me this book and when I was first approached to read and review it I turned it down because quite frankly it looked sad and I was so not in the mood for sad. But after she assured me it was so worth it, I know I want to read it now and have plans for it this summer.
This book doesn't even come out until almost the end of summer but it is the last in a series I've absolutely adored so I know I will be reading it as soon as it releases in August and I can't wait. It will be bittersweet to say the least.
I always say I'm going to finish this series and yet, I never make time for it. Well I think this summer is finally the summer I do it. At least keep your fingers crossed for me that I do. I loved the first book so I do't know what my problem is other than the love triangle maybe?
Yep, still not finished with this series but I'm almost there! Really only like, what four books to go. I can do it right? Plus if I'm being honest, I miss Rachel and Jinks!
I was thinking of starting this trilogy but I don't know. I'm afraid that I might have outgrown this genre for the most part so, if any of you have read it and loved it, let me know and I just might try it after all.
And that is all that I can remember thinking I really wanted to try and I know, I know there are more. Gah! So this is where you come in, please recommend me something or if you remember me saying I wanted to try something you reviewed or read, let me know because seriously people, I'm drawing a blank and I so want a check list this summer. :D
