    Personally, I will be reading the CHERUB series books from Man vs Beast and hopefully, I will read up to The Sleepwalker.

    What is your favourite book, and what books will you be reading over the holiday's?

    According to my Goodreads account I have 298 books on my to-read list.

    I've made a short list of books that I want to read over the summer. They are mainly philosophy books as I've been putting those off until I have the time to fully digest them without work/exams looming ahead.

    In terms of fiction, I'd like to get ahead with the Discworld series by Terry Pratchett. I started the Hogfather recently, and I've also got Going Postal. Those will be a nice break from the bulky philosophy books I've got.

    I've also gained an interest for short stories recently; I bought Lydia Davis' collection of short stories, and I have a collection of Vladimir Nabokov's short stories as well (one of my favorite writers).
    Ooh, and after finishing The Metamorphosis I've also bought The Trial by Kafka. A Hundred Years of Solitude is also on my summer list; its been on my list for ages, but by adding it to my summer list I'm going to make sure I get through it within these two months! Oh, and I've also added two of Steinbeck's novels: Grapes of Wrath and East of Eden to my list.

    Plus my friends bought me a £50 Waterstones giftcard for my birthday so I can buy even more lovely books!

    ..I may have gotten a little carried away with my to-read lists.

    I've got a few physics related books, but for fiction I've got Lolita, Brave New World, the Knife of Never Letting Go (and sequels) and 3 Sophocles plays. May also reread The Explorer by James Smythe because I really enjoyed it the first time.

    I want to read the trial too! I've read a bit of it in waterstones but had to drag myself away from it because I already have soooo many books to read. I've got to read moby ****, the illiad, ulysses, paradise lost/regained and a bunch of others haha

    Going to read some classics. Have already read Pride and Prejudice. I'm planning on reading Emma, Mansfield Park, Sense and Sensibility. Will probably read 'Rebecca' as well as I end up reading that book every summer.
