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.

As I do everyday, I go online and do some irrelevant things like spending way too much time on Tumblr, tweet useless bits of information about my life and look at other people’s photos on Instagram. Every now and then I also tend to buy a few things when I’m at it.
So here’s what I’ve ordered recently.

Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie
I wanted to read something of Christie for a long time. It’s probably one of her most famous books and I thought would fit well as a start in the series of Hercule Poirot. If it turns out that I like this book, I’ll definitely pick up more of her books and start from the actual first book.

Yes Please by Amy Poehler
Since watching Parks and Recreation, I’ve become a fan of Amy Poehler. She is extremely funny and has done some amazing work in comedy. I’m looking forward to reading this one as it’ll be something completely else than the books I’ve already read and I hope it’s going to be quite funny.
