Well it’s that time of year again when readers across the land scramble to finish their summer reading lists, prepare for new fall reads and holiday book hauls, and maybe get caught up with real-life people. I have done quite a bit of the latter, am not even thinking about the second, but am a strong participant in the first. My Summer Reading Challenge ends not with August, but with the autumnal equinox on September 22nd. With that in mind, here’s a recap of what I have completed, and the titles that still reside on my To Be Read list.
- A Discovery of Witches
- The Pier Falls and Other Stories
- Shadow of Night
To Be Read:
- Me Before You
- The Fireman
- Wilde Lake
- M Train
- The Lost Landscape
- It’s Okay to Laugh (Crying is Okay Too)
- The Book of Life
How overwhelming. I have had some trouble this summer checking out books from the library (due to their unavailability) as well as purchasing new books because, summer! And, I have read a few other non-list novels, like Station Eleven and Things Fall Apart. Those are my excuses, although my birthday is only two weeks away; I will gladly accept any of the To Read titles as gifts.
What is the progress of your summer reading goals? Are you doing better than I am? Worse? The same? Share, as always, and let me know if you’ve started thinking ahead to fall reading!
