Summer Reading List #1

I have a few books on the list of what I want to read this summer. After 9 months of putting off reading anything other than the key readings for my degree, I am looking forward to reading for pleasure rather than for a deadline.

1. Losing You - Susan Lewis 

I have borrowed this one from my mum after forgetting that I had a few others in the pipeline ready to read. I started yesterday and have read 2 chapters. I quite like Jodi Picoult books and hopefully it will be like one of those. I look forward to reading the rest of it, it is quite good already and the reviews are really good.

2. The Casual Vacancy - JK Rowling

I bought this book when it came out in 2012 but have never got round to actually reading it. I started it early last year, but never continued, probably due to school work. I saw online that there is also going to be a TV adaptation on the BBC with Michael Gambon (who played Dumbledore in the Harry Potter films) to play one of the leads. I am a huge Harry Potter fan so look forward to seeing what else JK Rowling can do.

3. Mockingjay - Suzanne Collins (not pictured)

I absolutely loved The Huger Games and Catching Fire books and films. Unfortunately, last summer I quickly read Mockingjay and found myself really confused and a little disappointed. I hope this summer that I can read it again before the first film comes out and hopefully enjoy it a bit more and take more notice and time of characters that enter the story.

However, unfortunately whilst writing this post, a friend of mine from uni sent me a reading list for one of my modules next year. Whilst it doesn't look like I can completely disregard preliminary readings for my degree, I am looking forward to reading these books during summer and hopefully be able to squeeze a few more in. 

Once these ones are finished, I hope to finally catch up on the times and read The Fault In Our Stars and Divergent, but will see how it all pans out!
