The list author says: "It is my goal for this summer that I read all of the books I have not read on my shelf. Some of them I saw the movies, and others I have not, but, in all I've always wanted to read the text out of curiosity and intrigue. This list consists of fantasy,Gothic romance, macabre, robberies, teenage angst, romance, an autobiography, and vampires."
"I took a Tolkien class this semester, but because of my hectic schedule of classes, I cheated by reading some chapters and listening to the audiobooks, which was shameful. I actually liked this epic novel, which is why it is on my list of summer reads."
