summer bucket list | read books that will feed my soul

The arrival of summer was accompanied with the ample time i had been waiting for to make a dent in the ever-growing list of books i had wanted to read. 
Some of them are classics, others are the type of book that my mother frowns at (well, the title the virgin suicides was always going to raise an eyebrow), and others are ones i've already read before, but i reckon that there are certain books, like the perks of being a wallflower, which always feel like the first time reading it again and again and again. 
And i think i will be reading most of these again and again and again; i adored every single one. 

Do you have any favourites?

I'd love some more recommendations! 


  1. Ah these have all made an appearance on my list at some point too! I read On The Road last year and loved it, it's easy to relate to if you love to travel as he captures the thrill of it so well. I really want to read The Virgin Suicides so let me know what you think of it!

    P.s. I just finished Birdsong and it is amazing

  2. Lovely photos! the Perks of being a wallflower is in my wishlist since forever! I've been reading The Fault in our stars and I LOVED it! Going to read looking for Alaska :)


  3. I've been dying to read Lolita! I'm currently reading To Kill a Mocking Bird but can't really get into it!x

  4. Great picks! I've read them all apart from On The Road and Nick + Norah. Although I love love love the film of Nick and Norah with Michael Cera so maybe I'll have to read it some day :)


  5. You have such a nice room! so refreshing to look at :)

  6. firstly, I love the strawberries and mini nutella idea. secondly, I love your choice of books, I've read a few of them. I have the catcher in the rye on the 'to read' list. one of my favourite books is the fault in our stars by john green, such an easy but beautiful read! x


  7. You read The Virgin Suicides? I want read this book! The Perks is an awesome book and I adored so much. So If you liked him, I think you should try Thirteen Reasons Why. Actually I'm reading The Great Gatsby and A Beautiful Mind, and from the beginning, I seem lovely books.


  8. Summer really is a great time for reading :D I'm supposed to be reading lots of books for school... they're just not as enjoyable when there's essay writing involved! My fave book is The Catcher in the Rye - it's brilliant. I also really love A Patchwork Planet :) My cousin is called Kate and she lives in Oxford too! Just thought I'd point that out haha :') Lovely blog! x


  9. Ah great selection of books-I've been trying to do some reading in summer too as sadly I've neglected it over the past year. I read 'Rebecca' by Daphne du Maurier-really recommend it although it's not exactly cheerful and summery haha

  11. Maybe it's just me, but although I've tried reading perks of being a wallflower, I just couldn't! I preferred the movie! Have you tried books by Jodi Picoult? I LOVE them!
