It’s been too long! I decided not to blog during my first year of law school, but I’m thrilled to be back. I recently began my summer internship. While that is exciting, I’m looking forward to spending my time outside of work reading, relaxing, traveling, catching up with friends, and taking care of business.
Below, I’ve listed some of the books I plan on reading this summer. If everything goes as planned I hope to provide a brief review of each book as I complete them. Who knows? If things go really well I may add a few books once I’m done with these. Anyways, let’s get to my summer reading list:
- Homegoing by Yaa Gayasi-This book looks amazing! I’ve heard so many great things about Homegoing. I cannot wait to start reading this story. Gayasi brings to life African and American history over 300 years tying in raw emotion, family ties, and the effects of colonization.
- The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo-While my house is fairly neat/clean right now, Bray and I have too much stuff. We could use a system to get rid of our excess items and re-organize what we’ve got. The trick will be to make sure Bray understands the book’s contents as well, hehe.
- The Fire Next Time by James Baldwin-James Baldwin was such a powerful writer. He spoke on controversial issues that were close to his heart. This non-fiction book focuses on racial injustice during Baldwin’s younger years.
- Empire of Storms (Throne of Glass #5) by Sarah J. Maas-I love the Throne of Glass series. I’m currently finishing up another Maas book from a different series. Her books are definitely my guilty pleasure. I love romance and fantasy, so for me, Maas’ books are quick reads.
- Hinds Feet on High Places by Hannah Hurnard-This book is about the main character, Much-Afraid, going on a journey of faith. My mom lent me this book a while ago, but I lost track of it when I moved a few years ago. This book has so many rave reviews, so I’m ready to see how it ends and what I’ll learn from Much-Afraid’s journey.
- We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche-What a bold title! I love strong, audacious women who empower other women. We Should All Be Feminists is an essay describing Adiche’s experiences as a woman in today’s world. Adiche is a bestselling novelist who has a widely popular Tedx talk under the same title.
I’m excited to dig into these books this summer. What are your favorites? Do you have any recommendations for me?
