Summer Reading

One of my favorite post-graduation past times is reading. I have recently finished a major project which means I will have more time to have my nose in a book! Lacey has always been a major reader, and I'm always getting recommendations (and usually the book itself!) from her. Here's my summer reading list.

I recently finished this one. I read Firefly Lane a few summers ago and was excited to read another one of Kristin Hannah's books. This book was heavy, but it was good! I definitely want to keep reading more of her books!
I am currently reading this one. I'm not very far in, but I read all the other Pants books and this book is the story of their lives 10 years later. I'm excited to see what the late 20's hold for Tibby, Lena, Bee, and Carmen.

Last summer/fall I read the 14 book series by Karen Kingsbury about the Baxter family. Bailey Flannigan was a minor character in that series, and now Karen has a new series that is all about Bailey. In the Spring I read Leaving and the second book in the series just came out...

The last book left me wondering what was next, so this book is next in line on my list!

I have heard great things about this book by Ann Voskamp and hope to read it before the summer ends. "A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are."

Last, but not least...I really want to read The Help before the movie comes out in August. I don't know where I was when everyone was talking about this book, but now I decided it is time for me to read it!

Do you have any books I should add to my list?

  1. I am so glad you wrote this post! I am needing some books for the summer. "Sisterhood Everlasting" and "A Dare to Live Fully Right Where you Are" both sound like two I should add to my list asap. I just ordered "The Lake of Dreams" by Kim Edwards and am starting it today. I read her other book "Memory Keeper's Daughter," and it was so well written and haunting. I am always drawn to books that are haunting i.e. my latest read: "Bloodroot." Anyway, happy reading! There is nothing like a good book, and I do not have enough good things to say about "The Help!" It's fab.
