What is it about summer that makes me want to make a “to read” list? I don’t do it for any other season and it’s not like I’m still in school and have summers free to finally read for fun. Either way, I love to scope out books ahead of time to add to my list and imagine myself reading them while soaking up the sun on the beach. Side note: I hardly ever read on the beach, so I have no idea why that picture always comes to mind. 🙂
Last summer, I had high hopes of reading a ton of books, but the entire time I was pregnant I had absolutely no patience for reading. Not that it takes a ton of patience to sit down and read a book, but for some reason, reading was the last thing I wanted to do. I want this year to be different, so I’m making a lofty goal for myself to read 10 books between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Most of the books on my list are newer, except for Angels & Demons which has been on my “to read” list for a while since I’ve read all of the Robert Langdon books except for this one and DaVinci Code.
Please feel free to read along with me since I’ll be chatting up each of these books here! And if you have any other suggestions to add or thoughts on these, let me know!
All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr – I’ve heard about this book from a few other bloggers, so I’m excited to read it myself.
A Hundred Summers by Beatriz Williams – This book has the word “summer” in it, so it’s got to be a good summer read, right?
Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel – This New York Times Bestseller about the collapse of a civilization due to a flu epidemic.
Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella – I must admit I love the Shopoholic books by Sophie Kinsella, so I’m interested in reading her newest book and first in the young adult genre.
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart – The name of this book is enough to suck me in and see what it’s all about!
Angels & Demons by Dan Brown – I love me a Robert Langdon book. As I mentioned, I’ve read them all except the two most popular ones that started it all!
My Sunshine Away by M.O. Walsh – I’m excited to read this one that goes deep and uncovers the dark side of a seemingly idyllic neighborhood and charmed characters.
The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton – Family secrets, murder and love. This book has it all!
What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty – Alice’s life is going great, but then one day she awakens on the floor of the gym and realizes it is 10 years on from her last memory and her life and relationships are in shambles. Is it bad that this really intrigues me?
The Andy Cohen Diaries by Andy Cohen – Okay, so I’m kinda cheating on this one because I started reading the book when Cecilia was first born and totally got sidetracked since. I’m back to reading it and I love it’s juiciness. Hello my name is Christina and I’m a Bravoholic!
Alright, there’s my list! Read along and feel free to suggest others I should add!
Happy Summer Reading!
