Summer reading list

Like most avid readers, i like to have a few books a can be engrossed in when i’m on holiday. And so, each year i look to amazon to provide me with those books. This year there were at least twenty books that i wanted to order. But i didn’t, i selected a dozen that i wanted to read the most and ordered them. When they came i read the blurbs, leafed through the pages etc… I came to Rick Yancey’s 5th Wave and after reading the first few lines found i couldn’t put it down. One thing led to another and before i knew it i’d read half the book, by the following afternoon i’d completed the book. So much for saving it for my holiday. I tried to stop myself after that but i just couldn’t and so far have ended up reading four of the books from my reading list. 100 cupboards by N D Wilson (really cool and funny), The Gates by John Connolly (Hilarious and exciting), and The Fire Chronicle by John Stephens (currently reading, near completing).

Next year i’m going to wait until a week before the holiday then i won’t have a chance to read half my books before actually going on holiday. In the meantime, i suppose i’ll just have to order a few more to fill the void.


The List:

– Wereworld: Rise of the Wolf
– 100 Cupboards series
– the 5th Wave
– The Dark Hills Divide
– The Sister’s Grimm series
– Gods of Manhattan
– Cronus Chronicles
– Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter
– The Fire Chronicle
– Every Dead Thing
– Artemis Fowl series
– Killing Floor


About Sam Whitehouse

Sam spends most of his time in a different world to other people. If it isn’t one he’s created himself, it’s one he’s reading about. In the rare moments when this isn’t the case, Sam can either be found addicted to a sci-fi or crime show, re-watching Marvel movies, finishing up an assignment for his final year of studying Creative Writing at Sheffield Hallam University, or trying to get the dozens of ideas for stories in his head under some kind of control. Sam has lived in the same small village in Yorkshire, surrounded by countryside on all sides ever since he could remember. His childhood saw him get into plenty of scrapes climbing trees and crossing rivers and generally believing he was Indiana Jones. Sam gives credit to his Grandad for him wanting to be a writer, and his bedtime stories for keeping Sam’s imagination stoked. But credit must also go to Steven Spielberg, J K Rowling and Stephen King, who have provided plenty of inspiration over the years, too. Sam writes what he reads, and that is pretty much anything—save romance. Fantasy, thrillers, or crime: once an idea takes root, he can’t stop until the world, characters, and plot are on paper. A huge Marvel fan, Sam one day hopes to pen a screenplay for one of their movies, or direct one, or do anything at all related to one. Until then, he’ll stick to his own fantasy worlds and wait for Marvel’s phone call.
