My Book To- Be-Read List (of fun)

Over the summer, thanks to the booklr side of Tumblr and the library, I’ve come across a whole bunch of books for me to read. Some I’ve heard about, others not so much. As an English major, I am required to read sometimes up to six books per course, and I take about five courses a semester. Because of this, I don’t have much time to read books for relaxation so I made a list. A list of all the books I’ve heard about or saw over the summer that I think would be interesting: ( After making this list I realize it’s mostly YA books. I do read adult books but I didn’t realize my list was so YA)
