Happy Friday everyone! And happy summer to me… whoop whoop! Only one more teacher obligation – graduation tonight (postponed due to rain from last night) – & then it’s a few months off. Nope, there’s no better feeling than that!
Since summer has officially begun, I thought I’d share with you all my summer reading list for the upcoming months. Since I’m an English teacher, I guess it’s a given that I love to read. The sad thing is that during the school year, I become so engrossed in work-related tasks that it’s hard to find time to dive into a good book. I’ve been waiting months to have some free time to read, so I’m excited to get a jump-start on my list!
I’ve been reading 11/22/63 by Stephen King for a while now & it’s a great book. I’m about half-way through the nearly 700-page book, & I’m determined to finish it next week!
I’ve also been reading this book – Social Media Marketing by Liana Li Evans – on & off for the past few weeks. Since starting this blog (almost a year ago!) I’ve become more & more interested in social media marketing. While this may seem like it would be a little “dry,” it’s actually a pretty interesting read!
I read The Hunger Games last summer, but never completed the trilogy. I want to be sure to read Catching Fire & Mocking Jay by Suzanne Collins this summer so I’m prepared when the movies come out!
The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger, The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath, & The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky were a few of my favorite books that I read while in high school. They’ve all been on my “reread list” for a while now, so I’m going to make it a priority to take another look at them in the coming months.
Chris & I actually purchased this book for his sister as a Christmas gift, only to find out she had already received it. Rather than return the book, I kept Simply Divine by Lisa Vanderpump to read for myself! (Don’t worry we got Chris’s sister a new book – Kyle Richards’ book, actually, instead!) It’s 5 months later & I still haven’t had the chance to crack open the cover!
