Despite being 21 years old, I entertain a number of hobbies, routines and styles that are more suited to senior citizens than seniors in university. Case in point: my self-imposed 9 pm bedtime during the week, an affinity for “grandpa style” cardigans and loafers, a borderline unhealthy obsession with reading, my self-taught knitting skills and the fact that I detest internet shorthand (the dictionary says otherwise, but lol and omg are not words).
Given this, it’s no surprise that one of the best Christmas presents I’ve ever gotten was a Kindle. I managed to read something like five novels a mere four weeks after it arrived in the mail, but sadly had to shelve it when I started my business law class (16 chapters, 5 assignments and a final in 8 weeks meant no leisurely reading). Seeing as I finished the course this past weekend, one of the things I’m most looking forward to is being able to bust out books that don’t have the word “text” in the title. Here’s what I can’t wait to start reading.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Bossypants by Tina Fey
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
The Book of Negroes by Lawrence Hill
Delivering Happiness by Tony Hsieh
Do you have a summer reading list?
