✿A Summer To-Read Shelf ✿ In an ongoing pursuit to be well-read I hope to cross these classics off my list this summer. If you have or plan on reading any of these in the near future I’d love to discuss them together!
The Heart is a Lonely Hunter by Carson McCullers
A Passage to India by E.M. Forester
Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf
Dubliners by James Joyce
Dead Souls by Nikolai Gogol
Siddhartha by Herman Hesse
The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck
The Door by Magda Szabo
Walden by Henry David Thoreau
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
The Odyssey by Homer
The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton
I finished 9 out of 13 books on my summer to-read shelf. Mid-July I had to pick up a lot of extra hours at work so my schedule didn’t allow for as much reading, but I am pretty pleased with what I crossed off my to-read list and I hope to continue next summer!
