  1. Off your list I’ve read:
    Goldenhand, which I completely loved. I’ve loved Sabriel since I first read it and any book in that series is an instant hit with me.
    Orangeboy- amazing. It’s every bit as good as everyone says it is.
    Spectacles, which is just perfect Sue Perkins.
    The Knife of Never Letting Go- I swung between love and…less love with this one. Found some parts hard going but overall a really good read.

    I hope you enjoy them!

    • Thanks, I’m so excited to start Goldenhand, absolutely love the Sabriel series too. I think Sue Perkins will be the perfect one for travelling. I’ve read the first few chapters of The Knife Of Never Letter Go and it’s hard to get into but I’m going to keep going!

  2. Excited to see what you think of Dragons Green! I’ve also got Big Magic on my horizon at the moment as it’s been sat on my shelf for ages and I really love books about creativity. The Knife of Never Letting Go is incredible – I still have to read the others in the series though which is terrible! Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom are two of my favourite books I’ve read this year,oh and Milk and Honey is one that’s definitely on my wishlist! Basically,great list!

    • Thanks, I’m so excited to read pretty much all of these. Sometimes I have stuff that I’m not really ready to pick up but I’d quite happily start with any of these ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve been desperate to read of Six Of Crows for so long, I hear so many good things. I’m trying to save Dragon’s Green for my actual holiday but don’t know if I’ll make it that long!

    • Thanks, yes I’ve heard good things about it too although a few people have said ti was slow to start. It seemed to be everywhere last year so I’m looking forward to trying it.

  3. Loved this post and how ambitious your reading goals are, itโ€™s inspired me to have a good reading summer! We have such similar taste in books too. I finished reading Big Magic last month, and it was amazing, I think you might love it. Iโ€™m waiting a little impatiently for my birthday in a couple of weeks, as Iโ€™m getting Milk and Honey, I canโ€™t wait to see what the hype is about. Sue Perkins autobiography looks promising, and is one my TBR list. There were so many others you mentioned that I liked, so thanks for sharing! ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

    • Ah thank you, I may have been a little over ambitious but I’ve had a slow reading month so could do with catching up! So glad to hear you enjoyed Big Magic, I’m excited to read it and hopefully feel inspired. Milk and Honey is so readable and heartfelt, I can see why everyone loves it and I hope you enjoy it when you get it. Your birthday must be around the same time as mine, I’m hoping for a few more books ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

  4. It looks like you have lots of great titles coming up this summer – Big Magic is one I’ve had my eye on for a while now! I’ve never really been one for seasonal reading lists, but I have actually been planning one for autumn having collected a few books already. Happy reading!

    • Autumn is always the best time to have a seasonal reading list! I read so much more in the Autumn, Big Magic would probably be better for then actually but I don’t think I’ll wait that long ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. WOW – you have quite the stack of books to read this Summer. I really want to read The Silk Roads too – I have always been fascinated with the trade links. I have heard a lot of good reviews of Dadland – I must add that to my reading list too. Good luck getting through them all x

  6. Some great books here Hayley, lots I’ve now added to my TBR! I’m really hoping to get back into reading over the next month or so (once school is out!). I’ve started working on my Summer TBR post (its been sitting in my drafts for a while). Enjoy!

  7. I used to be a real book worm but now I rarely pick up a book. I’m hoping when my girls are bigger i’ll start again. I still love reading post like this and adding books to my list! I love Lainne Moriarty and haven’t read the one you mentioned. I also want to read big magic and sue perkins autobiography. Milk and honey sounds interesting too.

  8. I am always seriously impressed with your reading lists, Hayley. I am such a slow reader all of these books would take me a life time.
    I do particularly like the sound of Milk and Honey – sounds right up my street.
    xXx

  9. Fab stack of books you have there Hayley:) I picked up a copy of Big Magic from the library yesterday so I’m looking forward to getting into it too:) Enjoy:) xx

  10. Wow, that IS a long list, but a good list ๐Ÿ™‚ how is the reading going? I have seen Eligible around the blogs and I really like it, but haven’t got my copy yet.
    BTW, I am here through my Twitter blog hop that was ages ago ๐Ÿ™‚ only visiting now, sorry about that!
