Summer is well and truly on its way.
For me, there’s something magical about getting lost in a book for hours in the sunshine – whether it’s in the park, at the beach or poolside.
This year I am really back into reading and being part of the Black Girls Book Club community has reignited my enthusiasm for fiction.
Already I’ve read 7 books. To some avid bookworms, this may not seem like much but it’s a huge improvement for me compared to last year.
I’m lucky enough to have 2 holidays planned this year and both will include a lot of laying around in the sun – perfect for guilt-free reading marathons.
I will be taking full advantage of the opportunity to indulge in the following books:
My 2017 Summer Reading List
THUG: The Hate You Give by Angie Thomas
Small Island by Andrea Levy
Every Light in the House Burnin’ by Andrea Levy
Homecoming by Yaa Gyasi
Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe
Noughts & Crosses by Malorie Blackman
Around the Way Girl by Taraji P. Henson
Content Machine by Dan Norris

The Power of your Subconscious Mind by Dr Joseph Murphy
Witch: Unleashed. Untamed. Unapologetic. by Lisa Lister
Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On It by Kamal Ravikant
This list is, of course, a tiny drop in the book ocean but I only have so much time over summer.
To be honest, getting through this list is overly ambitious and no doubt I’ll be distracted along the way by a book not included here.
Because as any book lover knows, by the time you’ve finished one book, another 10 have been added to your wishlist!
What books do you have on your 2017 summer reading list?
