Summer 2016 Book Haul

Without the added stress and time consumption of school, summer equates to one thing: ample time to read, whether it be by the pool, at the beach, or in the comfort (and air conditioning) of home.  June,  July, and August also happen to be the months during which I spend the greatest amount of money on… you guessed it – books.  Despite my book hoarding tendencies which will likely bury me alive, I’ve gone on several shopping sprees over the past several weeks and have gradually been adding to my growing collection.

Profile Picture

I am a freshman in college and an avid reader/reviewer, horseback rider, and graphic designer.  Since a young age, I have fostered a love of reading, beginning with my forays into the Nancy Drew series.  I’ve branched out significantly in my reading tastes since then, and my favorite genres include young adult, romance, mystery, and thriller.  I’m constantly trying to expand my horizons, however, so I do dabble in other genres.  While I’m not reading, I volunteer at a hippotherapy center and a veterinary clinic, practice agility with my dogs, play piano and guitar, and sketch.

  1. That is a GREAT haul – I’m sure you’re having a great summer reading all of these! I’ve always been really interested in Suzanne Young’s Program series – how good are they?

    I loved Gone Girl and Fangirl! I’m also currently reading the Cursed Child, but I’m taking it slow so I can savour it. 🙂


    • I’ve only read the first book in the Program series, but I absolutely loved it. I flew through it in a single sitting, and it only took me about three hours to finish.

      I wish I had taken my time reading Cursed Child. I hope you start to enjoy it a bit more!


  2. That’s a lot of books, and I like the looks of all that young adult! Especially when it comes to the Ruin and Rising book. I still have to read that one but I am looking forward to concluding the trilogy!


    • I’ve heard so many excellent things that I couldn’t resist picking it up during my most recent trip to the bookstore! I can’t wait to start it because I’m very intrigued by the plot summary 😀
