As a post exam treat, I took the liberty of doing a therapeutic binge order on Amazon of books. I always read a lot in the Summer. New-found spare time and the constant commutes out and about means it just makes sense to read more. I just finished 1984, which was incredible and I've got a review of the play coming soon. I bought an eclectic mix with everything from classics to YA novels, a book on feminism and even a collectors item from my favourite TV show, Fringe. I will make sure to document my progress over the Summer and let you know my opinions on each!


Death and The Penguin by Andrev Kurkov
I Am The Messenger by Markus Zusak
The Opposite Of Loneliness by Marina Keegan
Touching the Void by Joe Simpson
We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
The Secret History by Donna Tartt
Sophie's World by Jostein Gaarder
Entwined by Heather Dixon
Fringe 'September's Notebook' 
Fringe 'The Zodiac Paradox' by Christa Faust
Why We Took The Car by Wolfgang Herrndorf

My to-read list is ever-growing, so please do share your recommendations in the comments!
