This week's Random Friday topic is Summer Reads. My library has a summer reading program every year, and for the past few years they'll challenged you to set a reading goal of a number of hours, not a number of books.  I really think this way of book-goal setting, and then year my summer reading 45 hours.

Onto the books I plan to read!

1. City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare
This book came out a few days ago and I'm seriously having a hard time not buying it.  I'm getting it from my library soon, and I really don't want to buy it, but I'm so worried that someone will spoil it for me and I don't want that to happen.

2. To All The Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han
As far as I can tell, this book is about a girl who writes love letters to her crushes.  That's about all I know about it, but it sounds good!

3. The Treatment by Suzanne Young
I got an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) of the first book in this series and have been it's cheerleader ever since.  I expect just as much from book 2, and I refuse to be disappointed.  I am very excited for this book.

4. We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
I've only read one other book by E. Lockhart, The Disreputable History of Frankie Banks.  While there were some parts of that book I didn't appreciate, on the whole I found it funny and well written, and I'm excited to see what else this author as to offer.

5. Graduation Day by Joelle Charbonneau (June 17th)
This is the third, and I believe, final book in The Testing series.  I know some people didn't like the second book much, but I really did.  I'm excited to see how this series wraps itself up!

6. Heir of Fire by Sarah Maas (September 2nd)
O my goodness.  This series!  This series is by far my favorite of 2014, and I am so excited for the last book.  The main character in this series has quickly become my favorite female character in YA.  I can't wait to dive back into her story, although I'll be really sad once the series is over.

So yeah.  That's my summer reading list, although I'm sure I'll read more than just those this summer.  What about you?  Comment with a few books you plan on reading this summer, or do today's Random Friday post yourself.

Thanks for reading.  I'll see you Monday!


  1. Great list! To All the Boys is awesome, so I hope you like it, too!

    1. I've heard good things about it, and the concept is intriguing, so I hope I'll like it!
      Thanks for stopping by, Emma.

  2. Tell me how "To All the Boys" turns out. I saw it at the store and thought it looked cool. Fingers crossed it's clean!! :)
    And I may have to check out "Heir of Fire" just for the cover.
    So many books, too little time...

  3. Fret not, my lady fair, for Throne of Glass is going to be a six book series. It isn't going to end anytime soon.

    Fun list!


Comments are awesome, rudeness is not. 'Nough said.
