Summer Reading List...

Hey everyone

Summer has traditionally been the time of the year when I catch up on my reading. Obviously as the complete bookworm that I am I read through the 'school' year but summer is when I practically spend every day with a book surgically attached to my hand (only kidding...sorta). So, I thought I'd share what I plan on reading this summer with you all :)

Fifty Shades...
Now, this really isn't the type of series I would normally pick up (massive understatement) but there's such a buzz about it on tumblr/blogger/twitter so I had to check it out. I started (and finished) the first one the other day and I have to say that I am hooked; yes there are a couple of words that are repeated constantly throughout and some of the scenes are horrendously graphic but the impeccable characterisation makes me desperate to read the next two books! Have you read this series, what did you think?

The Hunger Games...
Again this series has become a cult favourite with loadsa buzz around it and for some reason I have never read them (shocker) so although it doesn't really sound something I'd generally go for in a book I've decided that I need to see what all of the fuss is about. Are you a Hunger Games fan? Am I mad for not reading this sooner? 

Nicholas Sparks...
Due to the host of movies released/being released I feel I should read some of Nicholas Sparks' books before I see the films. They seem like really girly, easy-reading books to spend the summer on :) Have you read any of his books/seen the movies, what's your fave?!

I feel like my classic literature reading has some what fallen to the wayside during the uni year and after reading 'The Great Gatsby' earlier on this year I figured I really missed getting my teeth into analysing some classic literature.so I'm planning on reading some classics this summer to enrich my literature knowledge. Do any of you read classics for fun or is it just me being a massive nerd?

Handmaid's Tale - Margaret Atwood
Great Expectations - Charles Dickens
Catcher in the Rye - J.D Salinger
Romeo & Juliet - Shakespeare
Lord of the Flies - William Golding
Adventures of Sherlock Holmes - Arthur Conan Doyle
Hercules Poirot - Agatha Christie

I'm always looking for new books to read so leave a comment sharing what's on your Summer Reading List?

aHm xoxo


  1. I love Romeo and Juliet. One of my favorite books :)

    Also Nicholas Sparks novel are perfect for the summer:)

    1. I love Shakespeare so I'm excited to read this one :) Looking forward to reading Sparks' books before I see the movies :)

    2. Same. For some reason, I love comparing the movies to the books. Its a different movie in my head when I'm reading lol.

  2. The Hunger Games books are amazing, hands down some of the best books I've read so far! I'm getting ready to start on the 50 Shades trilogy! So excited! Have you read The Help? That's what I'm finishing up now, so good! Have a great Friday!

    1. I've just finished the first hunger games book and I was so surprised at how much I liked it! Can't wait to read the 2nd one now :) I just finished the first 50 Shades too - aside from some cringy detail the characterisation is impeccable - another sequel I can't wait to read :)Thanks for commenting, Happy Friday!

  3. I have also started reading classics for fun. And the Hunger Games was amazing. I am proud to say I read it before the movie was announced b/c my friend forced me to. The series is so interesting and thought-provoking, but still fun to read.
    And I just discovered your blog, and it is awesome. Would you like to follow each other?
