The Summer Book List.

The backstory: I’ve been in a reading rut. Before university, I would read 2-3 books a week and now, it’s more like a book a month, or I just recycle the books I’ve already read [Harry Potter being the main series I re-read]. This summer, I haven’t got solid plans yet and don’t intend on spending it in front of Netflix. It’s time for a change.

The challenge: read thirty books that I haven’t read at all or all the way through before the end of the summer (from 1 July 2017 to 31 August 2017) and simply blog about it.

The book list:

  1. Dante – The Divine Comedy.
  2. Erika Johansen – The Fate of the Tearling.
  3. Jane Austen – Emma.
  4. Jane Austen – Sense and Sensibility.
  5. Sarah Perry – The Essex Serpent.
  6. Thomas Hardy – Tess of the D’Urbervilles.
  7. Nathaniel Hawthorne – The Scarlet Letter.
  8. William Shakespeare – King Lear.
  9. Willian Shakespeare – Hamlet.
  10. Gabriel Garcia Marquez – Love in the Time of Cholera.
  11. Robert Galbraith – The Cuckoo’s Calling.
  12. Daisy Goodwin – Victoria.
  13. Fyodor Dostoevsky – Crime and Punishment.
  14. Kate Riordan – The Girl in the Photograph.
  15. Cassandra Clare – City of Fallen Angels.
  16. Cassandra Clare – City of Lost Souls.
  17. Anne Bronte – The Tenant of Wildfell Hall.
  18. SJ Kincaid – The Diabolic.
  19. Daphne du Maurier – Rebecca.
  20. Vladimir Nabokov – Lolita.
  21. George RR Martin – A Dance with Dragons: Dreams and Dust.
  22. George RR Martin – A Dance with Dragons: After the Feast
  23. Harper Lee – To Kill a Mockingbird.
  24. Anthony Burgess – A Clockwork Orange.
  25. Joseph Conrad – Heart of Darkness.
  26. Julian Fellowes – Past Imperfect.
  27. Gena Showalter – Playing With Fire
  28. Stieg Larsson – The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
  29. Philippa Gregory – The White Queen.
  30. Agatha Christie – The 13 Problems.

It’s going to be a long, fun summer. 

[Also, I know King Lear and Hamlet are plays, but it’s all relative].
