Tomorrow is July 1st, and you know what that means: we’re already half way through the year 2015!! This year has been flying by so far- seriously, where has the time gone? I can distinctly remember it being September of 2014 and entering my senior year of high school, and all of a sudden it’s the summer of 2015. These are crazy times we live in, people.

Anyways, the halfway mark is a great time to take a look at what you’ve read so far and appreciate the wonderful books you’ve read. Luckily, this week’s TTT allows us to do just that!

    1. haha Miss Havisham is quite a creepy character… I would have been scared of her if I read it when I was younger! The image of her in her old wedding dress and with the moldy wedding cake alone is enough to send shivers down my spine. What was Dickens thinking?


    1. I haven’t read the sequel yet, but it’s definitely on my TBR! I agree, Donna Tartt’s books are all really big commitments. Not only are they lengthy, but they’re pretty heavy in subject matter, too. Happy reading!

  1. 9, 5, 3 are great! 🙂 Gone Girl I never got into that much, didn’t really like it but maybe I was expecting something else from it. One of my favorites this year has also been by Donna Tartt, The Goldfinch is just stunning


    1. The Goldfinch is such an incredible novel! If you enjoyed it, I recommend her novel The Secret History. It has a similar dark vibe, only with more classical references. Thanks for commenting! 🙂

      1. It is! Secret History I have read as well but somehow I didn’t think it was as good as Goldfinch. Thank you for recommendation though and commenting 🙂


  2. You have so many good books on the list that I’ve heard great things about! There’s a few I haven’t heard of too…going to have to keep the eyes peeled for them! 🙂 Great list Holly.


    1. The Crane Wife is just brilliant. Patrick Ness is such a great writer, both in his use of language and the way he crafts his stories. I hope you enjoy it when you get around to reading it! 🙂
