When I finish a school year, I usually take about a week to just veg. I don’t do a whole lot, other than get outside and relax because I don’t want to deal with a lot of really overly stimulating stuff. However, something I am excited to do every summer is read for fun. Being an English major creates a sort of love/hate relationship with reading. I love reading, but I have to do so much reading when I’m in school, typically with books I don’t really care a whole lot about (like all British Literature class reading lists). So when I actually have time to read for fun, I want to take full advantage. I miss being able to just read a book that I want to read, and tell people about it. So this summer, I plan to read basically as much as I can. I was reading advice to 1Ls from faculty at William and Mary Law, and everyone essentially said that the important thing to do the summer before law school is rest, and read. Basically don’t overdue it, but read enough to keep your brain limber and ready to receive information. So, here are some books I’m currently planning to read:
I’m excited to read this because it is the sequel to Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. I loved the first book, and I’m interested to see how the sequel goes!
I love this TV show, but I really want to read the first book!
Big Little Lies
This book was recommended by a few people, and I always see it at Barnes and Noble. The story line seems interesting, so I’m ready to read it.
I’m currently reading this, and really like it so far! It seems like a popular beach read. I also really like anything involving family dynamics, and this definitely covers that.
I’ve seen this book everywhere recently. Another family-based book, it sounds super interesting and I’m excited to start reading it.
Friday Night Lights
Hopefully I’ll get to this book, as I was inspired to read it after falling in love with the TV series. I want to read more about small town football purely because I find it fascinating and went to a high school heavily sports focused.
