But, summer had one huge thing going for it.
Virtually unlimited reading time! And a steady supply of books thanks to a mom who took me to the library - a lot! (Thanks mom!)
Of course, the grown-up version of summer doesn't have quite the same amount of free time. But it just wouldn't feel like summer if I didn't have a crazy assortment of books ready and waiting.
I've always been an avid reader. While I have favorite genres and authors, depending on my mood I'll read anything (except horror and erotica). Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Romance, Suspense, Thriller, Biography, Women's Fiction, Chick-Lit, Political Thrillers, Memoirs, Non-Fiction, YA, Dystopian, Classics and any combination of the above!
So just for fun, I thought I'd share with you a few of the books on my summer reading list. Maybe you'll discover a few gems you've never heard of. And if you want to share your TBR (to-be-read) list in the comments, I'd love to see what worlds you are planning to explore over the next few weeks!
- Bonhoeffer by Eric Metaxas. This baby has been in-progress for, um, a while. It's good. It's just not easy to toss in a diaper bag. I'm determined to finish it!
- Praying God's Word for Your Husband by Kathi Lipp. I'm writing a review of this one in the next week or so.
- Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer. Not a light read (a memoir of the deadliest season on Mt. Everest), but my husband really enjoyed this and it's been in my TBR stack for too long!
- Hood by Stephen Lawhead. A retelling of the Robin Hood legend.
- Saint by Ted Dekker. Don't anyone pass out, but I haven't read anything by Ted Dekker. Ever.
- Intervention by Terri Blackstock. I love Terri Blackstock but haven't read anything of hers in a while. Can't wait!
- First the Dead by Tim Downs. Another author I've never read. But this book sounds so good!
- So Not Happening by Jenny B. Jones. Because sometimes a good YA read is exactly what I need.
- Peter and the Starcatchers by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson. Just for fun!
