Books on The List
With Summer finally here, I’m beyond excited to actually have time to book binge. It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to get through a whole book in a day, something finally achievable. Woo-hoo! That said, here’s a list of some intriguing books that I’m looking forward to reading. Preferably lying next to the pool with oversized sunglasses and a fluffy towel.
- City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare
I am in love with the Mortal Instruments series. The fantasy world Cassandra Clare created is great and the characters are all so fully fleshed that I could read five hundred pages of them waiting in line at Wal-Mart and still stay interested. Plus: Jace. I mean, come onnnnnn. That boy alone is enough to put this on my Must Read Now list.
- We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
“A beautiful and distinguished family.
A private island.
A brilliant, damaged girl; a passionate, political boy.
A group of four friends—the Liars—whose friendship turns destructive.
A revolution. An accident. A secret.
Lie upon lies.
I saw this one in Barnes and Nobles the other day on my way out. If it had been on my way in (minus forty dollars worth of pages) then I would have bought it for sure. As for now, I can only wait until my wallet approves.
- The Merciless by Danielle Vega
Okay, so exorcisms, torture, and possession aren’t the typical beach side read, but when I saw the synopsis for this debut novel, I just couldn’t quell my interest. I WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS, AND I WANT TO KNOW NOW. So, yes, I will happily read this awesome looking, slightly sadistic book while sipping on a mango smoothie. Don’t judge.
- The Secret Ingredient by Stewart Lewis
Finally! A book that actually seems like it would be fitting for a day at the pool. I mean, the cover has a girl standing on the beach! Yeah-yah. Anyways, this book combines two things I really love. Books and food. So, how could I not want to read this? It reminds me (from the description, anyways) a lot of Thirteen Little Blue Envelopes. And if it lives up to it, then I’ll be quite happy.
- Paper Towns by John Green
Okay, this is not a new book. In any way, shape, or form. But since I haven’t read it yet, it’s new to me. I’ve read all of John Green’s other books, and so now I have this nagging itch to just finish this one off. So…I will.
In any case, these are a few of the books that I plan on reading in the upcoming month. I have no idea if they’ll turn out to be as good as they look, or if they’ll be a (flip) flop. <hehehe, bad pool puns.> Either way, I’ll be sure to let you know! Thanks for reading, and if you’ve happened to have already read any of the above, let me know what you thought.
