No matter how much I love reading it always ends up in the back burner. Lately a constant effort to turn off the electronics and focus on a book (I program 8 hours a day on a computer, if I don’t I’ll lose my mind). Next month I’ll even have three weeks off, which I’m planning on spending eating up books and tanning. Here’s the full list I want to get through (I have some serious catch up to do on that Goodreads goal).
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban / Goblet of Fire – J.K. Rowling
I’m reading the Harry Potter series in English for the first time. I’ve been stuck at the beginning of the third for so long, but I’m planning on finishing it and starting on the Goblet of Fire. I’m taking it fairly slowly because I want to enjoy them, but at the same time, I’d like to be done before the end of the year. Although I want to save a big part of it for Fall and Winter since reading HP in front of the fireplace curled up in a blanket is the definition of happiness to me.
Six of Crows – Leigh Bardugo
I bought this book in London back in December, because I’ve been suggested it so many times. Following six outcasts and their crimes seems like the perfect summertime read for me I guess. If magic is involved, even better.
A Gathering of Shadows – V.E. Schwab
I’ve been waiting for the right moment to continue this series, but to be honest I might just try to find excuses to not finish it. I haven’t enjoyed a book this much in forever and don’t want to rush through it. Although I already own the rest and I can’t wait to continue.
Illuminae – Jay Kristoff
As well as the others this one I got because I only ever heard good things of. This is not a “normal” book. The whole story is told in forms of files and documents and is set in space between planets and spaceships. I would enjoy a sci-fi story as is, but the concept makes it even more intriguing. It looks huge, but it’s filled with images diagrams and all sorts of fun stuff, it should be a quick enough read.
Magpie Murders – Anthony Horowitz
I always love a good mystery, but lately I’ve been let down a lot. I like trying to guess what happens, but when it’s super obvious it just becomes boring. This book promises to be an homage to classic crime, ideal for wannabe detectives like me. We’ll see about that…
Geekerella – Ashley Poston
As it’s summer I felt the need to include a fluffier book, but I’m usually never in the mood for those. This book seems like a perfect compromise for me. A geeky retelling of Cinderella filled with cosplay and comiccons? Yes please.
I’m hoping to get even more books done, but these are the main ones!
What are you reading this Summer?
