My Summer Reading Syllabus

I've always been obsessed with summer reading and the idea of having a checklist of books to read in the summer while school was out.  I loved having assigned reading, but I also wasn't afraid to give myself assignments if I didn't feel like we were being given sufficient reading material to last us the summer.  I recently found this self-created summer reading list from my high school days, complete with commentary from my friends, who thought I was nuts for making my own checklist.


Things haven't changed much since high school.  One of the things I miss the most about high school and college is having a list of things to read in the summer.  I first tried out the idea of creating my own summer syllabus last year, but the implosion of my marriage meant that things went off track pretty quickly.  So this year I'm trying again, this time with the help of my bullet journal, which I've recently become obsessed with.  Here's what I've got:






What do you think?  Am I crazy?  What would you put on your summer syllabus?

  1. I love this. I actually never had assigned summer reading in school (I wonder if it was because there was a high farm family level and also everything there was BASEBALL!! all summer long). So I only ever thought of summer reading in a romantic, it happens in books/movies way.

    I'm really feeling the urge to re-read all of Sarah Dessen's books this summer, so that would probably be my big focus for summer reading :)
