Most students are happy once it’s summer, as they don’t have to pick up a book for three to four months. Some students aren’t so excited if they have a summer reading list for school and are “forced” to read books during their free time.
But for me, free time means I have an unlimited amount of hours where I can sit and read. During the summer, I leave books in my car and in whatever bag I’m using, so if I’m ever stuck somewhere with nothing to do or have a break at work, I can get a few pages in. I’m that person.
Now that I’ve got four months of time (minus the many hours I’ll be logging at my two jobs), I have a huge list of books to get through. Here are some books I’ve decided I have to read finally (note: these books I already own, and don’t count books I would like to read but don’t have).
- Second Chance Summer – Morgan Matson
- Yes Please – Amy Poehler
- Starbird Murphy and the World Outside – Karen Finnyfrock
- All The Bright Places – Jennifer Niven
- Wrecked – Maria Padian
- How to Love – Katie Cotugno
- Until Friday Night – Abbi Glines
- Emmy & Oliver – Robin Benway
- On The Road – Jack Kerouac
- Lost & Found – Brooke Davis
- Suicide Notes From Beautiful Girls – Lynn Weingarten
- To Major Tom: The Bowie Letters – Dave Thompson
- Landline – Rainbow Rowell
- The Wangs vs The World – Jade Chang
- Catcher in the Rye – J.D. Salinger
