My Summer reading list

Everything that’s on my reading pile… 


Happy almost summer aka Monday, you lovely lot. 

I was thinking about posting some of my reading progress for a while now, but I wasn’t sure in which extent or format. So I just start with a rather simple post featuring the books that are on my current reading list as well as some that I read over the past months and that I highly suggest. And maybe this will become a regular thing?! Who knows. 

What’s on my reading list right now 

As I already mentioned before (in my June Goals blog post), I’m not the best when it comes to picking up a book. I sometimes go weeks without reading a single sentence. That’s why I set myself the goal to read at least 12 books this year. So far I’m doing pretty well. But I hope I can increase the number over the summer. 


1: The Beautiful And Damned – F. Scott Fitzgerald 

2: At Home In Joshua Tree – Sara & Rich Combs 

3: Eat Drink Nap – Soho House 

4: To Kill A Mockingbird -Harper Lee

5: Lastly,  The Republic – Platon 


Some books I highly suggest you pick up

These are just a few books I read lately. But these are the ones I enjoyed the most. Three real must-read classics, a collection of rather strange short stories and fun book for the everyday girl. 

For even more books I read and my opinion on them, check out my Good Reads account. That’s where I share every single book! Also, if you’re on Good Reads, make sure you post your handle below in the comments. I’d love to know what you’re currently reading. 


1: The Vanishing Princess: Stories by Jenny Diski is a collection of short stories. Which are darkly funny and subversive sexy. I read them last summer while being on vacation. And let me tell you, they made me blush and left me rather confused a few times. Nonetheless, I really enjoyed them. Because they’re different from everything else I read before.  

2: She Must Be Mad by Charly Cox speaks my right from the soul. It’s for every girl that feels too much! Even though I finished the books month ago, I still pick it up now and then again and re-read some of the poems. 

3: The Picture Of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. A true classic! Let me be honest, even though I never saw the movie, I still pictured Ben Barnes as Dorian Gray {swoon} Haha! What can you do? I really like Oscar Wild’s style in writing and the story left me wondering how still on time the book is. Nowadays, as we all focus on our looks so much. 

4: A Separate Peace by John Knowles. I just finished this book last month. It’s a beautifully written coming-of-age story which sets place during World War II in a boy’s boarding school in New England. The stories is another true classic. Which describes the friendship between two boys at this time.  

5: The Catcher In The Rye by J.D. Salinger is a story of missing others and past places and friends. The seventeen-year-old protagonist tells about his struggles and how he ended up in an unspecified institution. I found it deeply touching and highly suggest it for every young person to read.
