My Summer Reading List…

    For me summer is a time to a) lament my lack of money, b) try to get a job, and c) read. Read lots and lots and lots. In truth, as I am an English Literature & Creative Writing student, I cannot read enough. And I thought I would bring you all along with me. Some of the following books are from my third year reading lists, some of them are re-reads, and some of them are just there because I really wanted to get around to them this summer. If you have any recommendations leave them in the comments below, or if you’ve read any of these then let me know what you thought!  
    Some of these I have already finished, as my summer began back at the beginning of June; these are marked by having a black line through them. Books that will be re-reads will be marked in blue…
