All the books I’ve read in June 2014

Hey guys! Summer is finally here and I couldn’t be happier. It’s time to start reading more books and enjoy as much time outside as possible: I’m so looking forward to long picknicks in the park, barbecues and of course, sitting outside with a great novel (and an iced-coffee in hand). Don’t you agree that’s what summer was made for?

Today my first university appointment was at 4 pm (yes, the student life…), so I spend my morning with a long and leisurely brunch and later headed to the library to get a big stash of books for summer. Now I can’t wait to start reading them and discover new stories and adventures (good thing I finished watching Hart of Dixie last week…). I always put together a reading list at the beginning of every season, go to the library to see what I can find and maybe order a few of the others.

Here’s what’s on my reading list this summer (if you want to check them out too – you can find a description if you click on the title):
