SUMMER READING LIST

July 21, 2018

Reading has always been such a fun hobby that I really enjoy. So this summer, I have decided to share with you all my summer reading list. Here goes:

The Pilgrimage

by Paulo Coelho

Let me just say that Paulo Coelho is my favourite author. He is amazing and his works are just great and it really makes you think.

As for this book, I actually bought it a year (or two) ago and I used to read it on the train to work. But as I have moved and started travelling again, I have completely lost track of the story and now I am trying to read it again.

The Look of Love

by Sarah Jio

Now this is an interesting book. No spoilers but the main character can see true love. I mean, I am a sucker for true love.

Lilac Girls

by Martha Hall Kelly

If you don’t already know, I am obsessed with historical fiction. I really am, and this book has captivated my interest. It is about three ladies whose lives have been intertwined by the World War II.

We Should All be Feminists

by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

I mean, we really should be all feminists. So excited to read this one!

The Ghost Notebooks

by Ben Dolnick

This is a story about supernatural love, ghosts, a young couple and becoming a live-in caretakers of a historical museum.

On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

by Stephen King

Ah! This book has been with me since last fall. It’s one of those books that you read when you’re bored or something like that. I mean, don’t get me wrong–it’s really informative and come on, it’s Stephen King. It is a part memoir and the other part is a master class. This is just my go-to book to read whenever I am on a plane, train or bus.

I also think that every aspiring writer should read this book.

By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept

by Paulo Coelho

Another book by Paulo Coelho, of course. This novel is a poetic story that reflects the depths of teenage love and life in general.

Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald

by Therese Anne Fowler

Zelda was called the ‘first flapper’ by her husband, F. Scott Fitzgerald. I have always been fascinated and intrigued by her lifestyle. This novel is my key to understanding what her life must’ve been like back in her day.

The Race to Save the Romanovs

by Helen Rappaport

I am not really sure why, but I have been fascinated by the lives and the death of the Last Imperial Family of Rusia, the Romanovs. I have read memoirs and watched documentaries about them as I was growing up, and finding this book on the 100th year anniversary of their death was just serendipitous.

Go Set A Watchman

by Harper Lee

Another one of my favourite writers is Harper Lee. I have read ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’ countless times so I was overjoyed when she published the sequel. Can’t wait to bury my nose into this one.

I guess you can say that I really do love historical fiction, ha!

There you go! I honestly hope that I would be able to read all these books this summer, heh. I would really love to know what you are reading this season. So drop them down below on the comment box!

Have a happy summer and be happy, always.
