I’m a reader (if you hadn’t already guessed that). In order to be a writer, one must read. It is mandatory, in my opinion. So, I have a nice big list of what books I’d like to read this summer and I wanted to share it with you.
(I’m probably forgetting books in this list–particularly in the library section– and this is by no means complete or in stone.)
First! The stuff I need to finish:
Les Miserables by Victor Hugo (I’ve been working through this for a very, very long time. I’m at the point where I’ve got 100 pages left and I’m sick of it, but don’t want to waste as far as I’ve gotten. I’m finishing this via free audiobook.)
The Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson (Last book in the Mistborn Trilogy, though he does have other books set in the same world)
Want to Read (and already own):
Going Postal by Terry Pratchett (don’t technically own this yet. Waiting on a gift card.)
Shades of Milk and Honey by Mary Robinette Kowal
The Fall of Arthur by J.R.R. Tolkien (This is in poetry form!)
Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson
Alloy of Law by Brandon Sanderson
The Fire Within by Chris d’Lacey
The Hidden Gallery by Maryrose Wood
The Raven Boys by Maggie Steifvater
Redwall books (No particular ones) by Brian Jacques
And then there’s Beta-Reading. Not sure if I have permission to tell you the titles or who wrote the books. But both of the books are awesome (as are the authors).
So what’s on your reading lists for the summer?
