Book List!

This is my book list for the summer. Realistically, I might not be able to read them all, especially since our library is so small and a few of the books are kind of rare. A few of them I’ve read before, but most of them will be new. I found a bunch of lists of “100 books you must read before you die”, etc., as well as lists of book club books. I picked the more interesting ones.
