Hey there avid readers! The summer has gone and fall is on the winds. I’m back at school for my final semester at Emerson College and I can’t believe it.

Weekly Reading List #53

By Cynthia Ayala

Hey there readers I hope that everyone is having a wonderful weekend. Got my eyes checked out last weekend. Luckily, I’m not totally as blind as a bat, but as it is, I’ve spent my time reading and writing as usual. And as I read I find that my current reading list is dwindling! Can you just imagine the horror! I’m gonna have to go through my Goodreads list and my shelves sort through what I want to read next. I still have to finish the Pretty Little Liars series and I’m utterly hooked on the Dorothy Must Die series after the first novel, so there’s something. And I have tons of books to read on my Kindle and Nook, because yes, I have both.

In the meantime, check out this weeks’ reading list. Happy reading! Oh, and if you have any suggestions for me leave them in the comments section. Continue reading “Weekly Reading List #53”
