Mine is just an eternal "I'm behind" reading list. Need to finish the Wheel of Time series. Want to re-read the Harry Potter series, and the new Cursed Child. Have the 4-pack Divergent series box set to read.

Hi,

I'm hoping to find time this summer to read a few books. Here are a few I want to read

The Siren by Kiera Cass
The Crown by Kiera Cass
The Heir by Kiera Cass
The Maddie Diaries by Maddie Ziegler from Dance Moms


Ponyfan

I read the first three of those just this year.  Think my BFF still has my copies of The Crown series.  :)  Anyhow, I would recommend the Siren.  :)

I always have a lot of reading to do.  Usually something I have to read and something I *want* to read. 

On my list of have to read:

World History Book for my CSET (I have a test in early June.)

Want to read list is too long, but:

Thirteen Reasons Why
The Outsiders (re-read)
Princess Diarist

are all recent purchases that I should really work on.  :) 
Sales on HOLD!

I too don't have a reading list, but I've got collectors edition Fruits Basket manga books to read. In the books are two volumes from the single manga books.

I'm always reading. Nothing in particular for summer, just working from my Amazon wish list. I'm usually into historical fiction but have been branching out into fairy tale retellings, just finished Fairest of Them All by Carolyn Turgeon, not sure if I want to dive into her version of The Little Mermaid or not. I got sucked into the preview but then I read spoilers and I'm not sure how I feel about it.

Not so much as a summer reading list as an eternally increasing TBR. I currently have roughly 100 books on my Goodreads "to read". *sigh*

Wow so many interesting books. Has anyone read Midnight Pearls a modern take on the Little Mermaid?

Ditto.

A good friend of mine recently suggested that I might enjoy the Peter and the Starcatchersseries by Dave Barry / Ridley Pearson. It's a 'prequel' series that hypothetically explains the events that led up to the story of Peter Pan. While the series itself isn't bad, I just...can't get into it. It's like reading fanfiction, lol - I prefer the original Peter Pan story. If it needed a backstory, James Barrie would have written it. ;)

Peter and the starcatchers is an awesome book series.  Very fun and whimsical. ^.^

I am a fantasy/love story (non romance, non smutty) book reader.  Honestly, top of my reading list is rereading my favorite series, especially since some new books just came out.  In order of preference...

Cats Eye Chronicles - by TL Shreffler
(Kindle books, book one is free... You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login )

Throne of Glass series - by Sarah J Maas

A Court of Thorns and Roses series - by Sarah J Maas (new book out!!!). Modern Fae rebelling of beauty and the beast, and hades/Persephone.  AMAZING!!!!!!!

And now under my SIL's request, the Abandon Series my Meg Cabot. Just finished book one...did not like the writer's style.  "Insta-love" is non-plausible and mega irritating.

Ponyfan - I read all of the Crown series and the Siren.  Good, but not FANTASTIC in my opinion.  The love story didn't completely swoon me.
