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.
Last 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).
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.
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?
