My Summer Reading List

There are a great many summer reading lists published but I decided to take a look at my ever-growing to-read list and pick a few that I want to commit to reading this summer. I’ve already started two books for June (Cress and The Nightingale) and will likely finish out the Lunar Chronicles series with Fairest and Winter (so that’s 4 right there) but here are 6 more that I hope to read in June, July and August. This list is fiction heavy with a couple of feel good non-fiction memoir, self improvement type of books. I’ve been really in to fiction this year and just want to enjoy my reading this summer!

The Fringe HoursThe Fringe Hours by Jessica Turner

About making time for yourself by balancing responsibilities and addressing barriers.

I’ve heard Jessica on a few of my favorite podcasts and have been meaning to read this book for ages. I’ve got it purchased and downloaded to my Kindle so I can’t wait to dive in!

Island of the Lost GirlsIsland of the Lost Girls by Jennifer McMahon

I love a good mystery/thriller and the description of this book hooked me from line one.

Main character Rhonda witnesses a bizarre kidnapping. A young girl is abducted near a gas station by a person in a bunny costume. Feeling guilty about doing nothing to stop it, Rhonda volunteers to help with the search and discovers the truth about her best friend who has been missing for years.

The BooksellerThe Bookseller by Cynthia Swanson

A few months ago I did some searching for books about booksellers, librarians, book lovers, etc. I mean, I love books so it follows that I would like to read books about people who love books. This book not only looks to cover that basis but also involves and alternate dream reality. Seems like a good summer read to me.

The Here and NowThe Here and Now by Ann Brashares

First of all, I love Ann Brashares and actually didn’t know this book existed. I have read all her other books and can’t even believe I let this one slip past me.

This is the “unforgettable romantic thriller about a girl from the future who might be able to save the world”. I love that description. I love Ann’s ability to evoke emotion, she always makes me love her characters while simultaneously ripping out my heart (if you haven’t read Th Last Summer go get it now). I can’t wait to see what this story brings!

There are a couple others on the bench for me, if I get through these I’ll probably pick them up but for now, this should keep me busy and thoroughly entertained in the coming months!

Happy reading!
