Last time I’ve told you about books that you should read this summer but today is all about the books I’m going to read during my 2 month long summer break. There honestly is nothing better than sitting in the garden or at the beach with a good book in one and a lovely drink in the other hand. This is what summer really is about to me – oh yes, and all the other amazing things like barbecues with friends, getting a tan on, long evenings on the balcony, traveling, all the freetime….
Since 2 months is a long time I’ll probably read more than the books I will mention in this post. However I decided to only name my priority books here for the sake of reducing this list to a minimum. That basically means that I am only talking about the books I already have at home, sitting on a pile waiting to be read, or on my eReader. Since I tend to read a lot in the summer break and need to catch up on my Goodreads reading challenge of reading 65 books this year I’ll most likely add some others to the list through the course of the summer. If you want to stay up to date with what I am really reading in summer 2015 you can check out my summer-tbr shelf on goodreads, which I’ll be updating regularly.
What’s on your summer tbr? Have you already read any of those books? Or do you have any suggestions for books I should add to my list? Let me know in the comments :)
Jude and her twin brother, Noah, are incredibly close. At thirteen, Noah draws constantly and is falling in love with the charismatic boy next door, while daredevil Jude cliff-dives and wears red-red lipstick and does the talking for both of them. But three years later, Jude and Noah are barely speaking. Something has happened to wreck the twins in different and dramatic ways . . . What the twins don’t realize is that they each have only half the story, and if they could just find their way back to one another, they’d have a chance to remake their world.

At twenty-two years old, Sydney is enjoying a great life: She’s in college, working a steady job, in love with her wonderful boyfriend, Hunter, and rooming with her best friend, Tori. But everything changes when she discovers that Hunter is cheating on her—and she’s forced to decide what her next move should be. Soon, Sydney finds herself captivated by her mysterious and attractive neighbor, Ridge. She can’t take her eyes off him or stop listening to the passionate way he plays his guitar every evening out on his balcony. And there’s something about Sydney that Ridge can’t ignore, either.
Victor and Eli started out as college roommates—brilliant, arrogant, lonely boys who recognized the same sharpness and ambition in each other. In their senior year, a shared research interest in adrenaline, near-death experiences, and seemingly supernatural events reveals an intriguing possibility: that under the right conditions, someone could develop extraordinary abilities. But when their thesis moves from the academic to the experimental, things go horribly wrong.
When blind Marie-Laure is twelve, the Nazis occupy Paris, and father and daughter flee to the walled citadel of Saint-Malo. With them they carry what might be the museum’s most valuable and dangerous jewel. In a mining town in Germany, the orphan Werner grows up with his younger sister, enchanted by a crude radio they find. Werner becomes an expert at building and fixing these crucial new instruments, a talent that wins him a place at a brutal academy for Hitler Youth, then a special assignment to track the resistance.

My name is Don Tillman. I am forty-one years old. I have been married to Rosie Jarman, world’s most perfect woman, for ten months and ten days. Marriage added significant complexity to my life. Then Rosie told me we had ‘something to celebrate’, and I was faced with a challenge even greater than finding a partner. I have attempted to follow traditional protocols and have sourced advice from all six of my friends, plus a therapist and the internet. The result has been a web of deceit. I am now in danger of prosecution, deportation and professional disgrace. And of losing Rosie forever.
Das sind wahrscheinlich nicht alle Bücher, die ich diesen Sommer lesen will/werde. Ich hab mich aber dazu entschieden in diesem Post nur die zu nennen die ich auch wirklich schon Zuhause oder auf meinem eReader habe um die Liste etwas zu verkürzen. Ich lese im Sommer eigentlich generell sehr viel und da ich auch bei meiner Goodreads Challenge etwas aufholen müsste (das Ziel wären 65 Bücher im Jahr 2015) kommen bestimmt noch andere Bücher dazu. Wenn ihr also immer up-to-date sein wollt, dann solltet ihr mich bei Goodreads hinzufügen und dort immer mal wieder einen Blick auf meine summer-tbr Liste werfen.
Was lest ihr denn so diesen Sommer? Gibt es irgendein Buch, dass ich meiner Liste noch hinzufügen sollte? Oder habt ihr eines dieser Bücher schon gelesen? Kommentiert doch einfach :)
