Summer 2017 Reading List

Ever since I graduated from school, I've had less and less time to read for pleasure. Most days, my reading is limited to news articles or regulatory comment letters, not fiction. Well ever since I decided to make recreational reading a priority this year, I've come up with a list of all of the books I want to read. For the summer, I created a specific reading list goal: 

  • Britt-Marie Was Here by Frederik Backman - I'm currently listening to the Audible version of this which isn't reading but I'm absorbing the information in the book itself so I'm just going to go ahead and count it :P. 
    I loved Backman's other book, My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry and I'm currently finishing up A Man Called Ove (both fantastic reads, so I'm really excited to get into this one.
  • A Career of Evil by Robert Galbraith - Robert Galbraith is actually the pen name of J.K. Rowling and this is the third book of the Cormoran Strike series. I've read the first two and thoroughly enjoyed it so I'm looking forward to reading what new mysteries come Strike's way.
  • What If?: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions: by Randall Munroe - I've had this book in my Kindle app since the beginning of the year and I figure it's time to move to to my "read" pile.
  • Life of Pi by Yann Martel - This is slightly embarrassing for me to admit but I've never read this book! I downloaded it on my Kindle app but it's sort of just been sitting there. I'm determined to finally read it this summer though. 
What's on your summer reading list?


  1. Thats a great reading list my dear.



  2. life of pi is on my list too! I wanted to watch the movie but not before I read the book!

  3. I've just added What If to my reading list! I'm going to read The garden of fragrances (that's my literal translation from Italian), and Pass the Vodka (it's the second book following Linda Ferro's Underemployed is the New Organic). In one month I'm going on vacation, and I plan on spending my time reading on the beach. So thank you for the suggestions Deborah! Baci, Valeria - Coco et La vie en rose FASHION & BEAUTY

  4. I've always wanted to read Life of Pi but I never got to it! I got a Kindle last month but I haven't really used it yet, and I'm hoping to start reading with it now that I'm graduating!

  5. I haven't read life of Pi either - there are so many good books that are being turned into movies and TV shows and I'd usually be reading them, just struggling to find time at the moment. I think Life of Pi is a classic I must read so it's been added to my list. I'm sure one day soon I'll have more time for reading, and I keep a list of books to check out at the library on my phone ready to go for the days I do feel like I have more time!

    Seems I add to it more when I come to your blog - you always have good recommendations and I liked the short story book by BJ Novack you recommended some time ago, so I've always highly regarded your lists and reviews!

    Hope you are having a lovely weekend :)

  6. I have to admit, I don't make enough time to read, but I really should! I hear Life of Pi is great!



Thank you for your comments! I read every single one :]
