Summer Reading List

Pile of old books.

As a kid I always participated in our local library’s summer reading program.  It was always a fun way to spend the summer, along with long days in the pool.  I always looked forward to the stickers and prizes I got when I finished another title.  I remember one year I had a theme — only mystery books!  Even then I was pretty organized, I guess.  Summer reading has a special place in my heart and now that summer is coming to an end — I figured I’d share a few books that I’ve yet to read, want to read and am currently reading.  What’s on your list?
Here’s what I’m currently reading:
  • The Shining Girls by Lauren Beukes
  • Entwined with You by Sylvia Day: Entwined with You is the final book in the “racy” Crossfire series.

List of TV Shows Based on Books

9781476735481If one of your favorite books has ever been made into a movie, you’ve been in that uncomfortable state of great anticipation. Part of you can’t wait for the movie to come out, and to see the book come to life. But part of you wants it never to come out, so that the story will remain untainted by Hollywood — when the movie version ruins the story is just the worst! Like with The Other Boleyn Girl: Loved the book, lukewarm on the movie.

Recently — books are being adapted into TV shows, too. In some ways, I think this works a little better, especially for book series — there’s less pressure to fit everything in a 90 minute movie. So, of course, I made a list of TV shows based on books that you might want to check out! If you don’t have any TV streaming subscriptions, you could always see if you can find any of these TV shows on a proxy site like pirateproxy, for example. These websites allow you to download the latest movies and TV shows on to your devices, so hopefully you will be able to find these shows to watch. Who knows, you might even be able to find some shows that you haven’t seen before, and you might even want to read the books afterwards if you enjoy them that much! Out of this list, which ones are your favorites?
  • The White Queen
  • Sex and the City
  • Game of Thrones
  • Friday Night Lights
  • Bones
  • Gossip Girl
  • True Blood
  • Dexter
  • Vampire Diaries
  • Sherlock
  • House of Cards
  • Pretty Little Liars
