Let’s talk about books I’ll be reading this summer, since I can’t seem to concentrate on studying. At all.
So summer is officially here, but my summer doesn’t really start until the beginning of July, since that’s when my last exam is happening. And since my studying is going awfully wrong, I thought I’d share with you what are my TOP priorities when it comes to my summer reading. And speaking of exams, my giveaway is still open (it closes on the day of my last exam, ha, July 5th) so please enter HERE!
1. The Bands of Mourning by Brandon Sanderson
This is the sixth book in the Mistborn universe, but the second one in the Wax and Wayne trilogy, and the third in the Alloy era. That sounds complicated, but this is the second story arc set hundreds of years after the original trilogy. The world is entirely different and sort of has a steampunk feel to it, and I am really loving it so far, so I can’t wait to get to it this summer.
2. The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson
Speaking of Sanderson, I have yet to start his Words of Radiance series, and I am so excited about it. Everyone says this one is better than Mistborn, which seems ridiculous to me, so I can’t wait to see how good it actually is. As with any Brandon Sanderson, this book promises blow-your-mind-good world building, an intriguing magic system and awesome characters. That’s not a direct quote, but that’s what it basically says.
3. The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss
I recently read Patrick Rothfuss’ The Name of the Wind and I loved it (you can read my review HERE). The writing is so atmospheric and Kvothe is such a compelling main character. So I am really looking forward to continuing on with the Kingkiller chronicles and to see where the story goes.
4. Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch
If you haven’t picked up The Lies of Locke Lamora (the first book in the series) yet, what are you even doing? It was so much fun, and beyond clever, the setting is spectacular and the characters are to die for. And it’s such a fast paced Fantasy, which I am not that used to, so I loved it. Definitely can’t wait to get back into the world.
5. Dune by Frank Herbert (maybe)
I’ve been saying that I am gonna read Dune for years now, and I never get around to it. I really want to get into SciFi finally, since I love SciFi movies, but for some reason I find the genre so daunting. And Dune is a cult classic, so I really want to read it and maybe, potentially this is the time to finally do it.
So that’s my Summer of Fantasy TBR! A lot of big books and series that I really can’t read during the school year, so I am looking forward to finally catching up! Do you have any planned reads for the summer? Have you read any of these books? Be sure to let me know in the comments!
