Like a woman who threw caution to the wind with a groomsman at her sister’s wedding… I’m late. I know, I know, I really should have put my summer reading list up a month and a half ago but better late than never they say! So here’s a lil’ look at the books I hope to get my nose into this summer.
Ctrl Alt Delete by Emma Gannon – Emma Gannon is a seriously talented lass. She has an entertaining and thought-provoking blog and an extremely successful podcast which I binge-listened to for days once I discovered it. This girl knows social media and Ctrl Alt Delete is a testament to that – a book about growing up online. I imagine this book to be just as comical and beautifully written as Emma’s blog. Can’t wait to crack the spine!
Swimming Studies by Leanne Shapton – A story of a competitive swimmer turned artist. I was intrigued by this book when I read that one of its themes is the notion of being haunted by the person you use to be and how to find peace in the end. I reckon this one will be pretty darn insightful.
When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi – Better ensure the tissues are within arms reach for this one! A non-fiction read by a neurosurgeon diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer. A life affirming and painfully heart wrenching story so the book cover tells me. Not a story to read when you’re feeling down I should think!
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins – A total teen crush novel that will have you giddy over the cuteness! This young adult novel is set in romantic Paree where Anna has been sent to study for the year by her newly cashed up novelist father. Eeek! I have a feeling I am going to be nauseous over the sweetness of this tale.
Everything I Never Told you by Celeste Ng – When a teenage girl is found dead at the bottom of a pond, her family are desperate to find out how and why her untimely death took place. The story takes you back to where it all began, when her parents met and everything that went wrong after.
I’d love to know what you plan on reading over the summer months. Comment below or tweet me and let me know!
Until next time…That’s what she said.
