Happy Monday and happy Memorial Day everyone! While most of us are sleeping in, thinking about everything they won’t do today, I decided to make today’s post about my top 5 books I plan on reading this summer. These are definitely ones that I have had on my “to-read” list, but more importantly my, must get to this summer!
My Top Five:
1. 1984 By: George Orwell.
I picked up this novel while I was out thrifting one day knowing it would be at the top of my list. This novel is so well known not only during the time it was published, but today and the relevance it holds. It is one I am so excited to dive into and see my thoughts on it and the connections I make.
2. Pride and Prejudice By: Jane Austen.
While my collection of Jane Austen novels keeps growing, my knowledge about her novels is not. I have yet to read one of her books and felt after watching many different book reviews that this would be the best one to start with. It is not too lengthy and has so much positive feedback, I can’t wait to start.
3. Middlemarch By: George Elliot.
This is the only book that I want to read this summer that I actually have read something else by the author. I read The Mill on the Floss by Elliot a few months ago and absolutely fell in love with Maggie and Tom and everything that the book stood for. Once hearing about Middlemarch, I immediately went to my local book store and picked it up and it has been anxiously been waiting on my shelf for me to read.
4. This Side of Paradise By: F. Scott Fitzgerald.
This is one of those books I have wanted to pick up and read for such a long time and have never gotten around to it. I first discovered this book after seeing so many quotes from the novel and I realized right away I was going to love it. Anxious to see if it’ll withstand my expectations, I cannot wait to open it this summer.
5. Jane Eyre By: Charlotte Bronte
My final book I plan on reading this summer is (by no means a surprise) another classic. This novel again has been countless times reviewed and with such positive feedback at that. I cannot wait to begin reading all of the Bronte sister’s works (I know you will not be surprised to hear I have many novels from each sister already) and fall in love like so many other classic readers.
I hope you all enjoyed this summer 2018 “to-read” post. If you enjoy these type of posts be sure to let me know in the comments below and I will be sure to make more. It is definitely my favorite subject to talk about! Have a great week everyone!
