Summer Reading

images
I have a lot of plans coming this summer, so needless to say a lot of my free time is going to be getting caught up on all the nerdy shows (that is tomorrow’s post) and reading… a lot! With San Diego Comic Con, a trip through the Midwest, Florida then a cruise in November, I am pretty much grounded on spending. I may take a road trip here and there, but that is a big maybe.  I will be pinching pennies pretty much until Christmas.

So I decided to make my summer book & Movie/TV watch lists. It is time to read those books I thought about reading & those must see nerdy TV shows or movies. Especially since I am most likely going to be laying out by the pool enjoying the sunshine the majority of my summer 🙂

Those who know me know I read a lot, and I try to read as often as possible. It is a nice mental escape for when I can’t “really” escape.

I have an Ipad mini, and it is perfect for grabbing those Kindle books and reading when I have down time. (which is often right now  (sadface) ) Links are included to check out, if you are interested, I know I am!!

anyway I have been asking around and looking at new books to come out, and I have my summer reading list. I can typically read 2 books a week as I read often before bed, or out of boredom and I really do get a joy out of reading. So these are the 20 books I hope to read before Labor Day!
