Summer Reading List

Here are some books I am hoping to read this Summer. Of course, there is a good chance I won't get to read so many, and I will probably read some not on this list, especially considering that a lot of those I own as ebooks, but have to read on my computer, I would much prefer sitting outside! (I guess this should be called a list of books I am hoping to read in the near future)

This list is also only of books that I have access to right now, whether I own them as hardcover, digital copies, galleys, or from the library. It does not take into account books I might buy, and new releases. So basically it is a VERY non-official list!

  2. The Dark and Hollow Places (Forest of Hands and Teeth #3), by Carrie Ryan

What books are you hoping to read this Summer? Give me some suggestions! (so this list changes even before I start tackling it!)


  1. I actually have not read many of these! But I did love secret circle - it is a nice easy read to escape into after a crazy day.

    This summer I am planning to read all of the books on my bookshelf that I bought who knows how long ago and have yet to read.. before I buy a single book or go to the library I will finish all of them.

  2. Hehe I have only read two of these books: The Graveyard Book and The Mysterious Benedict Society. Both of them were WONDERFUL and I'm certain you will enjoy them. I am also hoping to read Geektastic some time in the near future. Happy reading! x

  3. I love The Mysterious Benedict Society! I need to re-read those books.

    Since I read so much anyway, I don't have much of an official summer reading list. I am planning on reading Little Dorrit and The Woman in White because those are two classics I haven't gotten around to reading. Also, other books in my sister's library that I haven't read yet.

  4. I read the Penderwicks at Point Mouette recently. It was sweet. :) The only other book I've read on here is the Mysterious Benedict Society. That's a great series.
    Some of these others look good, just from their covers, so I'll have to see about that the next time I go to the library. I already have a few I need to read first, though. :)
