Summer ’17 Reading List

If you like reading, then good for you. If you don’t, well then I don’t like you good for you too. If you guys didn’t already know, I’m in love with books. Books never fail to make me feel better or to satisfy my need for exploration and adventure. I’ve been reading since a little before I turned 4; I read books that were way more advanced for my age. I was always the kid that had her nose stuck in a book (and I believe I still am that person). As a kid in elementary school, I would spend every free moment in the library. And bear in mind, our school library was huge. Or at least to 8 year old me it was. Sometimes I’d read the same books all over, yet each time felt like a completely different journey. I love reading so much, but lately, I haven’t read as much as I used to. So to make up for all those missed hours, I’m going to read all summer long. How amazing does that sound? Here’s my reading list for this summer.
