Ah summer. Those beautiful months of sleeping in and eating waffle/frozen-yogurt sandwiches for breakfast. I've actually been pretty busy this summer, but I've managed to get some good reading time in. Here are some of the books I've been reading this summer:
Books that are being made into movies:
I've already read Papertowns, but I recently re-read it in anticipation of the movie being released (I also persuaded both of my parents to read it, and they loved it just as much I do). I've started reading Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl in hopes that I'll be able to catch the movie adaptation before I head back to school. I'm a pretty big fan of the Sherlock Holmes mysteries (and of the BBC show Sherlock), and I can't wait to see Mr. Holmes in theaters soon. I've re-read some of the longer stories from my complete collection of Sherlock Holmes (A Study in Scarlet, The Sign of Four, and some of the short stories as well).
Book haul from ALA
Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy
I'm rereading the Grisha trilogy to prepare for Leigh Bardugo's newest book, Six of Crows, which takes place in the same universe (also one of the books in my favorites pile from ALA). I was lucky enough to receive a copy of Six of Crows at ALA (after waiting in line for about an hour), and I'm very excited to read it!
The Lunar Chronicles
All of the books I've reviewed thus far (Daughter of Deep Silence, Avalon Rising, Spelled, Palace of Lies, and A Girl Undone) I've also read this summer - you can check out my reviews for more info. I hope you've all had a great summer filled with lots of books!
