One of my favorite things about summer is the freedom to read as many books as I want over whichever topic I choose. The school year is so stressful and busy that I never have time to read novels on my own terms. Sure, I read some great stuff in my English classes, but I want to expand my selections beyond the syllabus. Last year I compiled a list of books I wanted to read over the summer, and I’ve decided to do that again this year. Although I didn’t read every book on my list last year, I want to make it my goal to complete my summer reading list this year. You can keep up with my progress and read along with me on Goodreads!
