My summer TBR is a bit ambiguous. For the most part, I’ll be reading books for the Sci-fi & Fantasy MOOC that I’m following. The list is very interesting and there are lots of books that I have been wanting to read anyway:
- Grimm — Children’s and Household Tales (read)
- Carroll — Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass (read)
- Stoker — Dracula (currently reading)
- Shelley — Frankenstein
- Hawthorne & Poe — Stories and Poems
- Wells — The Island of Dr. Moreau, The Invisible Man, “The Country of the Blind”, “The Star”
- Burroughs & Gilman — A Princess of Mars & Herland
- Bradbury — The Martian Chronicles
- LeGuin — The Left Hand of Darkness
- Doctorow — Little Brother
I will definitely be reading those books ^ I don’t think I will have a lot of time to read books outside of the MOOC reading list (it’s ambitious enough as it is!), so I’m making my summer TBR a top five, instead of ten… (also mostly thin books) I’m hoping to focus on Japanese literature and dystopia this summer 🙂
Five Books On My Summer TBR list
- China Mountain Zhang by Maureen F. McHugh
This has been on my TBR-list foreverrrr! Perfect for the dystopia challenge 🙂

Japanese sci-fi/dystopia (for two challenges!), just what I’m looking for.

Won this over at Blog of Erised for the dystopia challenge, really excited about it 😀 I hope it’ll arrive in time for summer reading!

Odd one out but I have to finally read this!
