Summer Reading Lists: My Take

It's Memorial Day, so everyone is gearing up for summer. And that means summer reading lists.

I didn't really do summer reading lists when I was in school, not do I have a good gauge of what a friend called "summer books" (i.e. books that have a summery tone or setting). To be honest, I was constantly reading whatever I could get my hands on no matter the season. (And when I tried to think of "summer" books, I found I tended to place books in either autumn or fall categories if I could categorize them at all; not surprising, since I am an autumnal soul.)

So instead of sharing a suggested reading list for this summer, I thought I'd share what's on my own list for this summer. * means it's a reread. # means I'm already reading it. @ means it's an audio book.

  • Innocents Aboard by Gene Wolfe * #
  • Uprooted by Naomi Novik #
  • The Fact of a Body by Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich #
  • Stone of Farewell by Tad Williams * #
  • To Green Angel Tower by Tad Williams *
  • The Witchwood Crown by Tad Williams
  • The Queen of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner *
  • The King of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner *
  • Thick as Thieves by Megan Whalen Turner
  • Beren and Luthien by J.R.R. Tolkien
  • Shadow and Night by Chris Walley
  • Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo * @
  • Ink and Bone by Lisa Unger @
  • The Burning Bridge by John Flanagan @

What's on your list this summer? Do you find that you read certain books or types of books depending on the seasons?
