Summer 2014 #EstellaProject

tep_season2_edit-1024x682I’ve been seeing lots of summer reading lists around and feeling pangs of envy. Unlike seemingly everyone else, my school never had required summer reading. (Is this a generational thing? Meant to keep students engaged and out of trouble?) But, schooly that I was, I would have loved it. Now, the Estella Project has got me covered.

The Goal? Pick a couple books (or more) from the list. Read ’em, review ’em, link ’em.

The Estella Project Summer Reading List

Strangely, I plan to read the first two:

  • The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon
  • The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman

I want to get another fantasy done for Once Upon a Time VIII, so expect to hear from me about the Gaiman before the solstice. I’ve had The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay on my shelf for quite some time. I even used it recently as part of a book rainbow!


I might also read Geek Love by Katherine Dunn or reread Something Wicked This Way Comes, but I’m not gonna go crazy. 😉


Writer, publisher. Hobbies include reading, studying magic & illusions from a historical/theoretical perspective, and playing ultimate frisbee.

  1. The Estella Project sounds like my kind of reading challenge (that is, not very challenging at all!). The only two on this list that I haven’t already read and that are in my 746 are Let The Right One In and Geek Love, so that’s my choices made! Kavalier and Clay is a great read – enjoy and thanks for the heads up about this challenge!

    1. No problem! In adult-hood, I’m pretty terrible at keeping to lists, so one that has lots of options and little requirement works out well. 😉 I read Let the Right One In a few years back. The movies are pretty much a pared down version of the bigger story. It’s brutal, but good.

  2. I have always wanted to read The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon. I look forward to seeing what you think about it. I don’t really have a summer reading list. I just read whatever is next on my reading pile. I should find a summer book to read!
