I have loved reading for as long as I can remember. I could get lost in a book for hours. Still can, actually. But I don’t read as much as I used to.

I’d like to say I have a library that rivals my DVD collection. I went through a phase where I collected all the classics I should’ve read but hadn’t yet after finding a website that sold them for a couple dollars each. That was in college and I still haven’t tackled many of those.

Even though I’ve been accumulating new reads, I haven’t yet devoured them. But it shouldn’t be shocking since more than half of the DVDs in my collection are still wrapped.

So, in addition to everything else I want to accomplish this summer, I’m also going to challenge myself to read more.

Here is my summer book bucket list that I hope to get through by this fall.

  1. The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
  2. Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
  3. We Are Pirates by Daniel Handler
  4. All The Dirty Parts by Daniel Handler
  5. We Are Okay by Nina LaCour
  6. The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Abertalli
  7. And We’re Off by Dana Schwartz
  8. The One Memory of Flora Banks by Emily Barr
  9. One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus
  10. The Art of Feeling by Laura Tims

If you can’t see a trend with my list, I’m still really into Young Adult books. I’m not 30 yet so I’m still a young adult, right?

I’ve also got a slew of books I got for free because of Amazon First Reads and my Prime Membership. Since Kindle books are easier for me to read on the go, I might swap titles out as I go, but I’ll try to keep this list as updated as possible!

What are you reading? I’d love to get new recommendations so that I have more summer reads to add to my summer book bucket list.
