Summer is officially here. I say officially because in Spain we've been dealing with a horrible heat-wave since the beginning of last week and I cannot fathom how people love summer. I hate it, with a passion. And I cannot wait for autumn and winter if I'm honest.
- The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. I've been meaning to read this book for ages now but I'm terrified of the hype. However, I do want to watch the TV show adaptation and for that to happen, I need to read the book first.
- The Clocks in this House All Tell Different Times by Xan Brooks. I pre-ordered this book the moment I heard about it because it sounded so so good. It came out in April and despite wanting to read it, I couldn't because of damn finals. Now I'm free. Yay! I hope it lives up to my expectations though.
- The Raqqa Diaries: Escape from 'Islamic State' by Samer. Another fairly recent release. This is an autobiographical book about the situation in Syria and the brutal conditions many Syrians are living under.
- Dreamland Burning by Jennifer Latham. This book is part mystery part historical fiction. In present day Tulsa Rowan finds a body in her family's property and she tries to find the truth behind it. But it also deals with past Tulsa and the horrible events that happened in 1921. I know this is gonna pack a punch. I've heard nothing but amazing things.
- The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry. If you don't know about this book, where have you been living? Under a rock? It was everywhere last year and it has been released in the US the past week I believe. It is a very hyped book in the book community and that's why I've been putting it off for the longest time but I need to know what all the fuzz is about. It sounds just straight up my alley.
Any books you're planning on reading this summer?
