Summer Reading Bucket List

It's summer. I'm working full time, taking an online class from the University, trying to polish my grad school apps, etc. But goddamn it, I will read books FOR FUN this summer!

Here is the summer reading bucket list:

Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh
Borderlands by Gloria Anzaldua
The Last Generation by Cherrie Moraga
Giving Up the Ghost by Cherrie Moraga
Crime and Punishment by Dostoevsky
The Brothers Karamosov by Dostoevsky
Jude the Obscure by Thomas Hardy
In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan
The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
Steppenwolf by Herman Hesse
Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carol
Babbit by George Eliot

Ambitious, perhaps, but I rise to the challenge! Hail summer!


  1. Great list! I've been compiling a list of books to read all year and it's disappointing that I've barely made a dent in it (I've always believed that school should have an independent reading class so we could enjoy reading rather than picking up a book and weighing it down with assignments). This summer I'll definitely be playing catch up as well!

  2. There is nothing I love more than a book list! I have kept a collection of my favorite hidden away in the closet. I also have re-read some of my favorite such as Harry Crews, Autobiography of a Place. Great list!

  3. Very very nice! I have read most of these, and some are on my list for summer as well! :) Have a blast girl!

  4. Love the determination...the other night as the stack of books that I've been promising myself for months I would read over the summer finally toppled from the nightstand with such a crash in the dead of night I thought my house was being invaded, I decided it was beyond time to make a dent in the pile. Some that were hiding there, I found I didn't even remember adding to the pile. So sad.

  5. Haha, oh I know the feeling of over planning on a reading list! In the past, I inevitably had wayyy too many books on the list. More than I could ever get to. I guess the point is just to read. Read something new and become enlightened, and then do it again!
