~Summer Reading List~

I get really excited when I actually have time to read a book that was not assigned to me. So now that it is summer, and I recently graduated college, my summer is free to get some serious reading (and writing) done. I’ve started compiling a list of books, some I have read, some I have not, for me to read this summer. Here is the list so far:

  • The Ocean At the End of the Lane- Neil Gaiman (a fantastic writer in my opinion)
  • The Eternal Wonder- Pearl S. Buck 
  • The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake- Aimee Baker (I have started this book a few times, but I will finish it, even if it kills me)
  • The Art of Fiction-Henry James
  • A Clockwork Orange (read and seen the movie)
  • A Heartbreaking Work of a Staggering Genius- Dave Eggers
  • The Kite Runner- Khaled Hosseini 

That is the list so far, I might add on a bit later. I’m looking to different types of literature to help me with a sense in the direction I go with my writing. Each book I read, I will review and take down any writing or life lessons learned in said book. Because, well, we all know how much the books we read impact us. And for those that don’t, now you do. Great pieces of literature sticks with us. Teaching us some of life’s greatest lessons.  It shapes us into who we will be, and can be good help when we know what we want to become. As James Bryce once said, “The worth of a book is to be measured by what you can carry away from it.”


SO, readers…read on!
