My Summer Booklist

I suppose for the past few years I’ve become sadly stagnant in my choice of reading. However, as my Aunt began sending me books and I’ve been reading book-review blogs, I have expanded my reading list for this summer, ready to try something different.

Not getting off to a very good start, I re-read two of Katie Fford’s romances. Granted, I hadn’t read them in four years. But this did wet my appetite and I plan to move forwards with purpose.

Having this desire to widen my reading has created a problem as I’m sure it’ll take more than one summer to accomplish my goal, or perhaps it is an impossible target since I keep adding to my list. Anyway, this is my first sample list:

  1. If you really want to widen your reading, why not compile a list of books from other genres and add good-sounding titles to it. After that, read some reviews and you can shorten the list to three or five books, those that sound the most interesting. It’s just an idea. Otherwise, if you like, tell me a genre and I may help you out as I like reading a lot myself 😉

    • I may have to do that to narrow down my list. Quite a few of the ones on the list I’ve already got and the others have been ones recommended by reviews or family/friends.
      If you’ve got a good book in mind I’m happy to try any genre (except romance, because I’ve read too many of those :D)

  2. At the moment I’m reading “The Night Stalker” by Chris Carter. So far it’s a great book just as “The Executioner”, his previous book.
    What I can recommend as well is “The Chemistry of Death” by Simon Beckett and all his books from the David-Hunter-Series, also the first one is still the best. All of them are crime fiction.
    If you want to have a good laugh try Steven Clarke’s “Merde” books about a Brit in France or anything by Christopher Moore, especially “Fool” or “Lamb”.
    Let me know how you liked it should you decide to read one (or more) of these books. Hope that helps you for now. 🙂

  3. How i just love reading – after 4 years at uni I find that I am now mainly attracted to non-fiction, and especially in subject areas of psychology, sociology, justice system, anthropology and global warming issues. I usually pick books by their cover, not the best way to do it, and may take 4 or 5 books home a week – out of them I might only read one completely through, the others I will just skim. I find it vary hard at the moment to read fiction – which I do miss terribly.

    • I’m the other way round. I’ll pick up a non-fiction book (I have read sociology, psychology and global warming ones too) and strive to finish it but I normally get side tracked by a fiction book 🙂

  4. I’ve read A Walk to Remember and I hated it. I’m a Christian and usually, I love romance novels but for some reason, I hated that book. I still don’t know why. Maybe because I found it cheesy in a 90s teen American romance film kind of way/ But don’t let it put you off. I’m sure you’re found out that books are like TV shows or films: one man’s food is another man’s poison.
