Good morning! It’s the first weekend of summer and I hope you all are enjoying it though I know it’s raining like crazy in some parts of the country. With summer finally here and after looking at a few summer reading piles (Deb and Carl), I decided to post my own pile. I’m hoping to finally get to some of the books I’ve been staring at for awhile. In my pile is a combination of rereads, books that have been on my shelves for months and sometimes years, and a few library books.
If you want to know more about any book you see in the photo, just go to my Goodreads summer reading shelf here. You can also click on the picture to enlarge it.
My reading plans are pretty ambitious but I don’t have any plans for the summer. I just want to enjoy the weather, have fun with the kids, and read!
If you‘re looking for some great books to curl up with at the beach, I have a few links to share.
Earlier this week, Deb wrote a great post about Lucy Knisley’s Relish, a foodie graphic memoir. If you haven’t read this book yet, I highly recommend putting it on your summer tbr list. It’s a great way to spend an afternoon.
Aarti (Book Lust) wrote such a good review of The Ocean at the End of the Lane.
Melissa over at Feminist Texican shared her thoughts on Michael Moss’s Salt Sugar Fat.
Andi (Estella’s Revenge) wrote a post about BookTube a few days ago. BookTube is book reviews on YouTube. I had no idea.
Andi’s post lead me to Ricquetta (Nerd in Translation) and the 30-Day Reading Challenge. Participants read a set amount for thirty days. I don’t know if I can read a book a day but I would love to read for at least two hours a day. Hashtag: #30DayRead
So that’s it. I’m off to read. What are you doing today?
