Summer is here! And today I'm joining some of my Blended Blog buddies for a Summer Reading Blog hop! If you're visiting from Leslie's blog, welcome to my little corner of the world! So glad you stopped by! Hopefully hopping around to the blogs today, you'll get a few good ideas about what to read this summer.
Last year, the summer reading list I shared was a lengthy one. I didn't quite make it through the books I originally shared, but did read a lot. To see the books I actually ended up reading, you can follow my daily photos on Instagram here.
In last Tuesday's Summer Bucket List post, I mentioned that I had a goal to read 4 books this summer. I think this is doable!! I hope to read more, but think 4 is doable. Any more than that will just be a bonus! I also have 2 books that I began earlier this year...and never finished, but those are not included in my 4. I love to read and summer is really the only time I can devote time to it!! So I am looking forward to these!!
These are my top 4 Summer Reads:
First Comes Love by Emily Giffin
Just started this one! Am really excited about it!! I feel like Emily Giffin is summer!!
Wildflower by Drew Barrymore
I've had this on on my list since I think, January, when I saw Nicole had read it! Excited to finally get to it this summer!! It screams summer to me! I buy books in hardcover, and by the time I get around to reading them, they're already in paperback...
For the Love by Jen Hatmaker
I had seen this book all over the blogs for awhile. I finally bought it toward the end of the year last year and it has been sitting on my nightstand ever since!
I am Malala-
I saw this book at our schools last book fair of the year, so I picked it up! It's the young reader's edition, which I'm totally ok with.
Other books I have that I want to get to this summer:
Barefoot by Elin Hilderbrand- My sister raves avbout Elin Hilderbrand!
Big Little Lies and Wild were two from last year's summer reading list, that I never got to.
The Sleep Revolution- I got this book out of the library back in May and with all the traveling I did, never read it before it was due back! My name is back on the list at the library to get it soon.
Rich and Pretty- I heard about this book from Emily Giffin actually, when I saw her interview on the Today Show last week! I tried to get it out of the library, but it was out...added my name to that too!
I feel like when I get books out of the library, it makes me read, because I know I have to get them back!! LOL
Is there anything on my list that you've read? Let me know in the comments below! Or have a favorite book, you think I should read, let me know that too!!
