Guess who’s back?! Gosh how I have missed my blog, reading and talking to you guys. As you know I have been on a hiatus so that I could concentrate on finishing up third year and as of the other day (16th) I am officially done with my undergraduate degree. *Cue Tears* This means this will be my first summer I can read freely without having a big reading list to get done before September. I’m not entirely sure what I’m going to do with my life now. I guess I’ll decide after graduation but I do have a reading plan!
Whilst finishing up my essays and spending 99% of my time in my bedroom writing away, I realised the sheer amount of books I have on my bookshelves which I still haven’t read and I need to pick them up. Therefore this summer is project read the books I own!
Harry Potter Series by J.K Rowling – I am determined to reread this series hopefully all the way through in one swoop for the first time. As you know I finally finished the series this year and read the final two books but I had read the others the year before so I would love to give it a marathon! Also the 20th Anniversary for Philosophers Stone is June 26th which means it definitely must be done! I have some exciting posts planned for this!
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Screenplay by J.K Rowling – I’ve seen the film and really enjoyed it so I can’t wait to give the book a read to see if it differs in any way!
The Hate You Give by Angie Thomas – I have heard tons of amazing things about this book and I can’t wait to give it a read. I get very passionate about civil rights and the black lives matter movement and I can’t wait to read how Angie Thomas articulates this.
A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. MAAS – Oh boy. Can I get a pat on the back for not picking this up as soon as it arrived at my door? I mean everyone knows how much I love Rhysand. I can’t wait to read this third installment. I feel like I should re-read ACOTAR and ACOMAF before I pick it up because I can’t remember exactly what happened? To those who have read this would you suggest I do that?
Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo – Fadwa at @wordwonders introduced me to the world of Six of Crows and I loved it so much. I still need to pick up this sequel. I don’t want it to end though so I’ve sort of been putting it off. I need more!
Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir – Another one which has been sat on my bookshelf for so long. The cover is what drew my into buying it and I have heard amazing things so this one definitely needs to be picked up this summer.
A Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor – I have yet to read any book by Laini Taylor. Where have I been living? Under a giant rock I know. I’ve heard mixed reviews about this series but its been sat on my bookshelf for so long now I definitely want to pick it up for myself to see what it is about.
There are a few of the books I want to definitely try to get round to this summer. I shamelessly have tons more on my bookshelf that are yet to be read as well so the list is pretty high. What are you planning to read this summer? Let me know in the comments or if you have read any of the books on my list. Let me know what you thought!
I’ve missed you!
