Summer Reading List 2015

It's June...and school is almost out.  And even though I work through the summer, something about this time of year just still feels like summer vacation.

And with that....a new summer reading list!

I'm trying something different this year.  Usually I find a bunch of books that are on my "must read" wish list. Usually a new author, or the next or final book in a series. This year...I'm going to work on just one series.

I have two kids now and I just don't have as much time to read.  And this genre is one that is a bit harder for me. I don't normally read fantasy and so my normal speed reading will be slowed down. I just don't fly through these books like I would a romance or young adult series.

I've decided to tackle the Game of Thrones series by George R.R. Martin.  I've been watching the HBO show with my husband and so I decided I'll give the books a try after many recommendations from friends.  Based upon how far into the first book I will probably take me all summer to read all five books that are currently out. (I started last Wednesday and I'm on page 118.  That is how slowly I am reading this book....and how much free time I have to read the book!)

Want to follow along?  I've started with the first one, Game of Thrones.

The books in order are:
A Game of Thrones
A Clash of Kings
A Storm of Swords
A Feast for Crows
A Dance with Dragons

The last two books are not released yet.  Now....what if I all of a sudden fly through the books? What if I reach the end of summer and my final camping trip and I have no books to read?  Please feel free to leave some more summer reading suggestions for me in the comments and I'll consider it for this year or next year.

Happy Reading!
