Books that I Wanted to Read before the Start of the Semester

I feel as though I have accomplished quite a bit this summer. I traveled to Britain, logged 2,400 miles of driving to archives in the northeast, wrote a book review, nearly finished the manuscript for my next book, and prepared for my fall courses. However, I was hoping to read more "fun" books that have been lying dormant on my shelves. With a week left before the semester, here are the books I wanted to read:
