The 6 books I can’t wait to read in the summer 2018

My number 1 activity during the summer? Sit in the sun with a good book! (Obviously, this brings forth my number 2 activity in the summer, which is get a sunburn, but, oh well, details…)

However, my To-Be Read list doesn’t seem to take a break: in fact, it appears the more books I read, the more books are added to my TBR list. I didn’t think it was possible, but here’s the truth: new books are infinite.

As such, I have decided to come up with a list of books I will read this summer, and I will try to keep to it.

So here’s the list of books I want to read in the summer of 2018.

6. Surprise!

For the last book that I want to read this summer, I plan on reading one (or more than one) from the list of 100 books to read in a lifetime, according to Goodreads. In my article on the topic, I told you about the challenge I gave myself: read 50 from that list before I’m 30. As such, I want to read at least one before the end of the summer! I will keep you updated on my choice! 😉

That’s it for the list of books I want to read this summer! I am currently reading Sunburn by Laura Lippman, the first one on the list.

What do you feel like reading this summer? Is there a book from my list that interests you? Or that you have already read? Let me know in the comments below!

Until next time!
