My Summer Reading Plans

Holy cow, the summer is just around the corner…WE ARE ALMOST THERE! When discussing my TBR list, I am very lenient on what I am going to be reading next just because I do not have a specific order that I read my books in. Usually, I just see a book I want to read and pick it up. I normally don’t go looking for a book unless it is very special. With that being said, here are some books that I hope to get to in the summer!

It by Stephen King

This is not a YA novel but it has been on my TBR list for way to long. I love horror stories and a lot of King’s books are my favorite. I tried to read this last year and got about 400 pages in but eventually didn’t have the time to get through the whole thing. This is going to be my main goal this summer and I am sure it is going to take up a majority of my time because of how long it is.

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

I want to read this book just because I have heard such positive reviews about it and the next book in the series is coming out later this year. I bought this book when it first came out and it has been sitting on my bookshelf ever since.

During the summer, I am planning to do a lot of camping so while I do not have service and “becoming one with nature” I will get a lot of my reading done. My main goal of the summer is to finish a book a week. In order to complete this goal while reading It, I will have to read more than one book at a time which is not ideal but I always enjoy a challenge. I also want to keep up on my Twitter with recent reads and keep up with new releases.

I know we have a couple weeks left but I want to wish you all a great summer!

  1. I have never read the book IT but I have read 11/22/63 and I absolutely loved it. I love history and am infatuated with JFK’s murder and this takes such a twist on everything. I highly recommend this book!

  2. Your reading style is very similar to mine! I don’t want to box myself in with lists or put undue pressure on myself by setting required titles. Rather, I follow my mood. If it looks good, I read it. I’ve worked hard especially this past year stocking my personal library with reads that are beneficial to me both as a future teacher and as a writer. That way, I can’t go wrong! I hope you enjoy both books. Happy summer reading!
