So books happened…

So books happened…

Getting ready for summer vacation includes building up the summer reading pile. Since the start of 2015 I have been obsessed with classic literature, and I plan to continue this passion through the entirety of summer.
IMG_8950Last week I managed to pick up some books and empty my wallet. As much as I love buying new books and taking them home it also gives me anxiety to have a pile of unread books on my shelf (talk about readers problems).

IMG_8957Jane Eyre – Charlotte BronteĀ 

I have not read Jane Eyre since I was around nine, the plot has completely vanished from my memory. This year I developed a quite obsession with 19th century literature and Bronte sisters, I will not be waiting long to tackle this beast.

The Secret Garden – Frances Hodgson Burnett

This was love at first sight. Puffin Classics are one of the most beautiful books I have ever come across, need to collect all of them asap! I have finished this book already, review coming soon.

I will have to build up my courage before tackling this monster. Will not lie my knees shake just of the thought of reading this book.

IMG_8964Slaughterhouse five – Kurt VonnegutĀ 

Decided to pick this book up since I kept hearing people rave about it. I wanted to find out what the hype was all about. As of now I have already read this book and I am left kind of speechless. Not because it was so great or the opposite, but because I did not feel anything at all. I did not connect with characters or the plot. After the last page I was left unsatisfied and empty.

Of Mice & Men – John Steinbeck

I have not read any Steinbeck and this looked like a good place to start. I know nothing of this book, hope it will surprise me. I have noticed that I often have trouble with short books since it is hard to get a feel of the surroundings and the people in just a hundred pages or so.

These are some of the books I will be reading through out the summer. I am sure this list will grow and I will make sure to share any new additions with you readers.

What books are you planning on tackling this summer?
