My Summer Reads: A Recap

My Summer Reads: A Recap

According to the PG County, Maryland Beltsville Branch Library I have saved $748.58 by using my library card instead of buying every book that strikes my fancy. And let me tell you, that was definitely $748.58 that I did not have (and still don’t!).

Once I submitted my dissertation to my committee earlier this year, I had all the free time to dive back into my favorite hobby – reading. More precisely, reading non-school assigned books. To be honest, graduate school almost stole my love of reading and that would have been a tragedy.

This summer, with even more free time on my hands and an utter inability to be a productivity machine, I continued my love affair with my public library and read 10 very good books. I highly recommend each of these titles.

But my #1 read of the summer was, without a doubt, Tomi Adeyemi’s Children of Blood and Bone. If you are looking for one last book to savor before summer ends, this is the title you need to pick up. Trust me, you won’t regret it.

Since I’ve already read it and have a few more days before summer officially ends and the new school year begins, I picked up a few more titles.

Hopefully, I will be able to enjoy these three before my first day of orientation for my new job. Stay tuned!
