Everybody should believe in something. I believe I'll read another chapter.

I have decided my Summer Resolution for myself is to read more classic/older books and recent/maybe older memoirs and maybe just some books geared towards adults because I'm almost 18.

I've realized I read a lot of teen stuff, and not that there's anything wrong with that, I just really want to check these out.

I may not finish them (just because they're "classic" and "long revered" doesn't mean they necessarily please my personal tastes) but I will write a review for each book I read on this list. And still post reviews of the teen books I read.

DISCLAIMER: This list might expand because BOOKS. And it's not in order.
