Summer Reading

Summer vacation has started, and that means that there is no more required reading for school! No required reading means that I get to start reading whatever I want, as much as I want. I've spent the last few months incredibly excited about this time, as well as thinking about what to read (obviously).

Here is my planned reading list for the summer:
  • The Beautiful and Damned, F. Scott Fitzgerald
  • Despair, Vladimir Nabokov
  • Existentialism is a Humanism, Jean-Paul Sartre
  • Great Expectations, Charles Dickens (hahaha we will see about this one)
  • The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, Tom Wolfe
  • Women, Culture, & Politics, Angela Y. Davis
  • Thus Spoke Zarathustra, Friedrich Nietzsche
  • The Bell Jar, Sylvia Plath
  • Violence, Slavoj Zizek
  • The Metamorphosis, Franz Kafka
And of course, I will attempt to finish my long term reading project over the summer, Leo Tolstoy's Anna Karenina (I'm about halfway through and this book is so, so good).

This list is maybe a little too long to finish over the summer, but lately I've been in the good habit of reading frequently, and I have been reading several books at once. Maybe there's a chance that I will make a decent dent in this list.

Any recommendations?
