My summer reading list

Here are a few books that I’m planning to read this summer:

I started this a few nights ago. It combines two of my favorite things: John Grisham and baseball.

I actually read all of the first book (400+ pages) on the plane ride back from Australia. The book does such a good job of describing the desolate and hungry post-apocalyptic world of Panem  that, in comparison, the plane food was quite appetizing.

I’ve heard great things about this book. I ordered it from Barnes and Noble* a few days ago, and it should be here soon.

*Barnes and Noble is one of those things that most people don’t pronounce correctly (it’s not Barnes and Nobles). Other phrases that fit this category include intents and purposes (not intensive purposes) and et cetera (not excedra).

John Green runs the excellent vlogbrothers channel that I mentioned a few posts back. He is also a best-selling author. The Fault in Our Stars was released earlier this year, and it reached #1 on the New York Times best-seller list.

I’ll start with those four (well, three, since I already finished The Hunger Games) and will hopefully fit in a few more by the end of August.
