My Summer Reading List 2014

Right now I am definitely writing this blog  instead of working on an essay due in a week (Faust has been around this long I'm sure it will last until I'm done blogging). I've decided to post a tentative summer reading list! Note that I read classics all year long in school so these are my pleasure-reading books (not that classics aren't a pleasure but there's only so much Proust I can handle).

I will update the list with what I'm working on and what I've finished!
This means I've finished! 
  1. A Feast For Crows by George RR Martin
  2. The Diviners by Libba Bray

  1. Wow, that's quite a list! Are you a Marcus Sedgwick fan? I thought Midwinterblood was brilliant, and I see a bunch more here that I really love too. Looks like you're going to have a terrific summer, judging by your reading material!
