I am quite the disorganised reader. My book picks are always pretty random and are pretty much just based on what I feel like reading in the moment. This year, however, I wanted to try something new and did therefore actually create a ToBeRead-list of the books I want to read this summer. My summer reads, if you like, were actually not my picks, but instead I decided to trust a librarian. After the holiday I will go into further details about this, because there is a very specific reason as to why I am suddenly trying to be all organised and practical, and why I let somebody else pick my summer reads for me.
For now, though, I’d like to present to you – in no particular order – the books that ended up in my TBR pile for this summer. Some of the titles are Danish and are not (as far as I can tell) translated into English, but I will provide you with a (somewhat) direct translation of the title, should you not be familiar with the Danish language.
My summer reads in 2017 are (drumroll)
- Tell the Wolves I’m Home by Carol Rifka Brunt
- Regnfaldet (The Rainfall) by Gudrun Østergaard
- The Prince of Soul and The Lighthouse by Fredrik Brounéus
- De utilpassede (The Maladjusted) by John Kenn Mortensen
- The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey
- Det bliver pinligt uanset hvad (It will be awkward no matter what) by Tyra Teodora Tronstad
It is a good blend of YA novels and fantasy, which are some of my favourite genres. Despite the fact that these all sound very interesting, I especially have high expectations for “Det bliver pinligt uanset hvad”, “Tell the Wolves I’m home” and “The Girl at Midnight”.
I am so excited to begin these and already wonder if my list is long enough for the summer. But if it isn’t, then I guess it is at least a good start to being a more organised reader.
