My Summer Reading List


When I was younger, I'd spend hours reading books. I'd easily get lost in the midst of the latest Jacqueline Wilson and usually get the book finished in a couple of hours, then of course I was straight onto the next one. I'm one of those people that will read anything. Cereal boxes, the back of shampoos and shower gels, leaflets, posters - I just love to read. However, I have found that over the past year or two, my love for reading just seemed to vanish and I couldn't get it back. That can be quite frustrating as a reader, but I just couldn't force myself to concentrate on the words or the story and eventually gave up. The past few months though, I have been back with a vengeance. I think my reading mojo finally came back when I went to Florida in May, reading one book on the flight there, followed by four books whilst I was there! Since then, I have got lost in a couple of books. I am going on a summer holiday next month, where my sister is getting married in Greece - so apart from that special day I aim to get a lot of reading and relaxing done! With that in mind, I thought I would share with you what I am planning to read this summer. I will also admit here, that whilst all these books are on the kindle app of my ipad, I will always prefer having a 'real' book in my hands! Seeing as I tend to get through a good amount of books on a relaxing holiday, I thought it made more sense to load the books on my ipad rather than weighing my poor suitcase down! Without further ado, here are the books I hope to read this summer.
♥ Victoria Fox - Power Games. ♥
♥  Gillian Flynn - Dark Places. ♥
♥ Paige Toon - The Longest Holiday. ♥
♥ E.Lockhart - We Were Liars. ♥
♥ Kate Forster - The Perfect Retreat. ♥
♥ Giovanna Fletcher - Billy & Me. ♥

  8. I used to love reading, but I really struggle with it now! If I read, I like to read true stories or biographies, or something that is light reading. I can't concentrate long enough for a complicated story!


  9. I'm reading Hard Times by Charles Dickens for uni at the mo, but these books look great xx

    Cup of Loveliness
