Summer Reading List

Once more, I’ve been doing a bit more writing than reading this summer. My novella was accepted by a publisher and I just finished the editor’s suggestions. Once I know more about the release date, I will be posting more info!

  1. Hannibal by Thomas Harris
  2. Carmilla by Joseph Le Fanu
  3. Miss Peregrine’s School For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
  4. Crown of Crimson by Rose Reid
  5. Fantasy in Death by J. D. Robb
  6. The Bones of the Earth by Scott Bury
  7. Indulgence in Death by J. D. Robb

I finished Harris’s Hannibal series up this summer and checked out the classic Carmilla, which was actually the first vampire novel, predating Dracula by nearly 30 years. Since Carmilla was a female vampire, and also contains suggestions of homosexuality, it has been overshadowed by Dracula, which borrowed heavily from aspects of the earlier novel. I reviewed Crown of Crimson for Online Book Club and you can check out my review there. I loved Miss Peregrine’s School for Peculiar Children and I can’t wait to see the upcoming movie. Fantasy and Indulgence in Death crossed off 30 and 31 of my list as I work my way through the series. Stay tuned for my upcoming review of The Bones of the Earth, which will be published soon.
