My First Summer Reading List- 2018!

I always loved reading, but lately, with my reading challenges and being a member of various book clubs online and in-life, and following bookish people on social media has made me realise that I am reading even more voraciously than ever! Which is actually great and I hope to keep up the pace- which is where all these lists come in. I also hope this list helps some of you who are looking for similar reading material with your next selection as well:)

So for my summer reading list, I chose books that were recommended in various other summer reading lists (Modern Mrs Darcy) or from other book clubs or friends who recommended certain books. My intention is to read books that are short (250-ish pages) and are fun or light hearted or have a positive message, since I will also be busy socialising and traveling more these three summer months and I don’t want to keep very high expectations. So based on that, here is my Summer reading list for 2018.

Last updated on: 30th Aug 2018 🙂 I finished all the books planned for my summer reading this year and if you want to read my thoughts on them, please click on the link against any book that interests you. If you ended up enjoying it, please leave me a comment 🙂
