Summer 2017 Reads

I love these lists. I would love them even more if I thought there was any chance I would get to read them. Well, I do have two weeks off school this year, so I MIGHT get a chance to read. If I don't just sleep the whole time. No! Don't think that way. I AM going to read during my break. And here is what I feel like reading today. When I get to my break, I might pick something completely different, but today, here's my list.

Actually, I should just link you all to my Goodreads To-Read shelf. Pretty much everything on that list is everything I want to read. What's that you say? There are 229 books on that list? There's no way I could read them all in two weeks? Fine. I'll narrow it down.

Night Film

Night Film by Marisha Pessl - I bought this book from Amazon several years ago. At least, I think that's what I got. I haven't actually opened the box yet. It's been sitting on my bookshelf still in the box for years. One day I'll open it. I might be surprised. It's about a journalist who lost his job for making allegations against a famous movie producer that he couldn't back up. Now the producer's daughter has been murdered and the journalist is trying to pin it on him.


S. by J.J. Abrams - I think this was actually on one of my seasonal reading lists before. I still haven't read it. It's a book with another story told in the margins through the writings of two different people who read the book and made made notes in it.

China Rich Girlfriend

China Rich Girlfriend by Kevin Kwan - I really enjoyed the first book in this series, Crazy Rich Asians. It's kind of light fluffy chick lit, but on the other hand, it's kind of not. The main character is a down-to-earth Chinese girl and her boyfriend, who turns out to be the son of one of the richest families in Singapore.

Still Life

Still Life by Louise Penny - This is the first in what I hear is a fabulous mystery series. I've had this book for over a year, and just haven't gotten to it. Summer would be the perfect time to pick up a new mystery.

As if

As If!: The Oral History of Clueless by the cast and crew of the movie - I have this sitting on my shelf looking at me. I don't think it would take very long to read, and it would be highly entertaining. This might be the first thing I pick up after my classes end in June. Clueless is one of my favorite movies, and I love hearing stories about the filming of it.

What are some books you would like to read this summer?
