That Summer Feeling

My last exam is coming up next week, so it’s the perfect time to start looking forward to the summer vacation. The good weather, traveling and loads of free time are things I’m in desperate need of. School has been extremely busy this year, as I just almost finished my first year in college, and I really need some time to catch up on sleep and all other sorts of things. In this post I’d like to take a look at all the things that I’m aspiring to read or watch this summer.


Yes Please – Amy Poehler
I’ve already started reading this quite a while ago, but I wasn’t able to continue reading due to having to read another book for school. Now that that’s over I’ll gladly reprise Yes Please. I’ve only read 36 pages (and the prologue) so far, but I was already really enjoying it. She’s hilarious and it’s fun to know she’s dealing with other people and situations.

Gone Girl – Gillian Flynn
I think it’s about time that I read this one. Gone Girl has garnered a lot of critical acclaim and it has been lauded by readers, so I guess that’s the most important recommendation you can get. The fact that I liked The Girl on the Train so much and that it is being called ‘the new Gone Girl’ should say something, right? I’m really excited to read this one, or perhaps devour is a better word, and then I can finally watch the movie as well.

#1   How do you pick your next book to read?
I honestly just pick whatever I’m in the mood for, whether I want something fantasy or rather something comedic. It depends on how I’m feeling at the time of choosing. I tried setting up a TBR-jar once, but I found myself picking another paper if the one I got wasn’t really what I wanted.

#2   Which book or series do you consider a must-read?
For this one, I’m choosing a series that I haven’t read yet and I feel like I should be reading soon as it’s kind of obligatory. There’s all those fantasy-series like The Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter, but I’m going with basically all the books by Agatha Christie.
