You don’t usually get time to read books during your college days so Summer is that time of the year when you are able to curl up with a good book in hand to learn about life from a new master or to visit some fantastic fictitious land. For some time I have been hoarding books to read some time later but did not find the time to do it. Here I am starting again.

These are the books that I plan to read in the days ahead. The reading will probably go beyond summer but I hope that this time I can stick to a routine of reading. I’ll be posting reviews of the books as soon as I am finished. I’ll also try to share brilliant sentences and quotes that I will come across while reading these books.
