My Summer Reading List

EP-Summer Reading list

I have been an avid reader since I was a little girl. I generally read two to three books at a time. Even though Harry Potter was imagined into existence by JK Rowling long after I was grown, I took a cotton to those books like a duck to water. I’ve read each of them at least 3 times and yes of course, I have a copy of the most recent edition to the collection – Harry Potter & The Cursed Child. But, I love all kinds of books. The Game of Thrones series? Check. Young Adult fiction? Check. The Divergent Series, The Hunger Games, The Shadow Hunter Chronicles, and The Twilight Series? Check, check, check and check. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie? LOVE her. And the list goes on.

Here’s a peek at what I’ve been reading this Summer. I usually re-read a few classics, a few non-fiction and historical fiction books that reflect where I’ve traveled to or will be traveling to:

  • Kindred – Octavia Butler
  • The Nest – Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney
  • Noble House – James Clavell
  • Valley of the Dolls – Jacqueline Susann
  • Lilac Girls – Martha Hall Kelly
  • Lost and Found in Prague – Kelly Jones
  • Assignment Prague – Helen Haught Fanick
  • Why Not Me – Mindy Kaling
  • Snobs – Julian Fellows
  • The Heretic Queen – Michelle Moran
  • The Orchid House – Lucinda Riley
  • The Perfume Collector – Kathleen Tessaro
