Summer Reading List 2017

My summer started about three weeks ago, so this post is in the midst of my summer reading list. I’m going to put down the books I already finished for my summer reading, and the ones I intend to read the rest of the summer. I am trying to complete a lot of the more popular books in literature that I haven’t read yet, or haven’t finished. Mainly the former.

Here are the books I already finished from my summer reading list:

  1. Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides
  2. The Stranger by Albert Camus
  3. Talking as Fast as I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls by Lauren Graham

Not very many I know, but I had to make sure I included them.

Here is the rest of my summer reading list:

  1. Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe
  2. A Supposedly Fun Thing I’ll Never Do Again by David Foster Wallace
  3. The Catcher in The Rye by J.D. Salinger
  4. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
  5. Head Over Heels by Rain Mitchell
  6. Born a Crime by Trevor Noah
  7. 100 Years of Solitude by Gabriel Gárcia Márquez


What are some of the books on your reading list this summer?

  1. So many good books on this list! One Hundred Years of Solitude is one of the best, most engrossing books I’ve read. Born a Crime is a favorite too! If you’re on Audible, I’d recommend listening to Trevor Noah narrating his own story.

    Good luck!

    1. Thank you for the suggestions! It is very funny that you mention Trevor Noah’s book on Audible, because a friend of mine recently raved about it and sent it over to me! I have been meaning to listen to it, especially because I particularly enjoy when authors read their own books.
