Summer Fiction List: News

It has been a few weeks since I announced I would be compiling a Summer Fiction List of all the books that I plan to read this summer. I have had difficulty in coming up with this list and I believe it is because I get overwhelmed when I plan out what I’m going to read.

So I have decided I will post little lists incrementally throughout the summer, biting off pieces that I can chew so I don’t choke.

Here is this first ‘little’ Summer Fiction List,

  1. Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace
  2. One Select Philip K. Dick Novel
  3. Gwendy’s Button Box by Stephen King
  4. One Select Novel by Neil Gaiman, (I’m thinking American Gods)
  5. One or More Harry Potter books written by J.K. Rowling


First one on the list is NOT an easy read. I tried starting Infinite Jest last winter with my boyfriend but we didn’t get very far. It is a modest 981 pages but I want to try again.

I love Philip K. Dick but have not read much of his work, I want to do this this summer.

Since it is a new King novel, I am curious, so I plan on reading Gwendy’s Button Box.

I have attempted reading American Gods a couple times but life always distracts me from finishing. I want to finish American gods this summer.

I have been on a Harry Potter binge for the last eight months. I’ve read every single one since then and am currently on Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.


I am looking forward to getting some reading done this summer. I want to broaden my horizons and read more than just stacks of Poetry since that is what I always end up doing (this is not a bad thing but I need to explore other areas more frequently).

If anyone has any suggestions for fiction, please leave title and author info in a comment below and let me know why you would recommend it.

Lastly, I want to say Thank You to all my followers and daily readers that have continued to read my writing and frequent announcement posts.
