Summer Reading

11 Jul

Summer in Maui

While preparing for my junior year at UC Davis, I came across a recommended reading list on the department website. After a full year of only being able to read the required reading for my classes, the summer offers a rare opportunity to…read for fun. What a beautiful concept for an English major. I want to read a mixture of classic and contemporary literature with a little chick lit sprinkled in for fun. Below is my tentative summer reading schedule. What are you reading? Leave me a comment below and share your summer reading lists!


Dracula Bram Stoker

The Year of Magical Thinking Joan Didion


Paradise Lost John Milton

Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake Anna Quindlen

Walden Henry David Thoreau


Paris in Love: A Memoir Eloisa James

Frankenstein Mary Shelley

    This is my ideal list for the next month or so. Whether I’ll find time to get to them is another story! – The Social Animal by David Brooks. The Golden Notebook by Doris Lessing. And The Rule of Law by Tom Bingham.

      Those all look really interesting as well, especially the one by David Brooks! Too many good books, too little time.

      Thank you for visiting and taking the time to leave a comment!
