*this came about because the boy demanded a list of my favorites for some secret reason.

there will be books!

Seriously. I promise. I’m reading way too many at a time as it is. I’ll post soon(ish).

But, for now, I’m planning the summer reads because summer is the best time to read like mad and stay out of the dreadful heat.

Some of my picks…

  • I will finish A Clash of Kings.
  • I’ll re-read The Great Gatsby
  • I’ll finally get to Elizabeth George’s The Edge of Nowhere (received it for review ages ago)
  • And read Cassandra Clare’s A Clockwork Princess, Gail Carriger’s Espionage & Etiquette and Kate Locke’s The Queen is Dead.
  • Also, I will check out Jo Walton’s Among Others from the library’s display.

I think I’m aiming too far here…
