One of my favorite summer pastimes is discovering new books to read on lazy afternoons and evenings, and this summer I have a long list of books I have added to my reading list over the course of the year. I read books of many genres, and after declaring Religious Studies as my undergraduate major, I have discovered more books on spirituality and traditions. I am an avid user of GoodReads, a website for tracking your reading progress, and you can follow my reading adventures here. 🙂 So without further ado, here is my summer reading list!

I am currently doing the Goodreads 2016 Reading Challenge (I also did challenges in 2014 and 2015), and have pledged to read 50 books this year. Completing all of these books would put me at 34 books, with the rest of autumn to reach 50! What books do you hope to read this summer? Let me know in the comments! I am also always looking for recommendations, so send me those via Facebook, Twitter, or the comments! 🙂
