Well, well, it’s only one final exam until senior year is over and I am more than happy: all the exams went extremely well, thanks everyone for your encouragement and wishing me good, it means a lot. But the most important thing is that I’ll enjoy a summer full of reading of my choice! I joined A Victorian Celebration although I haven’t bought any of the books I wished to read… yet. I am also planning on reading lots of detective/crime fiction.
I already bought The Ice Princess by Camila Läckberg. Everyone loves her series and, I don’t know if I will too, but the first installment looks great, there is a writer and there is a crime. so, I’m in!
Kate Atkinson is one of my favourite writers ever and her Jackson Brodie series are amazing. The problem? I am reading then backwards: started on the third book, then the second and now I’m going back to the origins, to Case Histories. This is one of my most anticipated readings for this summer.
I discovered I am not a serial killer by chance in my local library and, although I have not read it yet, I am intrigued by the plot: a sociopath who knows his condition represses himself until a killer starts attacking his town… and he thinks it’s time to let his wish for killing out. Ok, this is Dexter, right? But I haven’t read the Dexter novels or seen the TV show, so I am not a serial killer sounds fantastic.
I am also wishing to read some Southern literature.
Gone with the wind seems to be a favourite in the blogosphere and, after seeing some stills from the movie, I cannot wait to read it! I feel a little bit challenged by the number of pages, though, but having as much time as I will, the length won’t be a problem.
I bought The Optimist’s Daughter a few months ago and haven’t had time to read it yet. But I have already read an amazing short-story by Welty and I really liked her style and her themes. I consider her the social chronicler of the South in the 20th century.
I am super excited for all these wonderful books and I can’t wait to devote some good three or four hours a day to reading. Do you have any special plans for this summer?
