Summer Reading List


The last few months I feel like my evenings have been filled with episodes of The West Wing and my weekends have been filled with lots of craziness. Somewhere along the way I stopped reading.

I love to read.

I remember as a kid being so thrilled because my mom would always let me order tons of books from the Scholastic book flyer. Then at the end of the year you would get a free book for every 4 or 5 you ordered through out the year. I'd start my summers out with about 10 free books. 

This week I finally headed to our local library and signed up for a library card.  It has been on my to do list for months but I always seemed to remember after the library was closed. Buying books on my kindle or target add up quickly!

I went in hoping to check out either Gone Girl or Lean In, but I had to put my name on a wait list for both. I really hope I get Lean In in the next few weeks. I want to read it before I head to Blogher'13 since Sheryl Sandberg is the keynote speaker on saturday, SO PUMPED! 

I am currently reading the book on top of the stack in the pic above, Carried in Our Hearts,  it is a book about adoption that my sweet husband bought me. So far I am loving it.

I have a few work trips planned for the summer as well as a road trip to Rhode Island and Scott will be gone for a while towards the end of the summer so I foresee lots of time to dive into a few good books. 
And the Mountains Echoed is also on the top of my to read list. I love LOVE LoVeD The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns so I can't wait to get my hands on Hosseini's latest book. 

I also want to read the rest of Lauren Conrad's LA Candy series, super easy read and fun to get lost in for a day.  

What books do you have on your summer reading list, I can always add to my list!

Right now I'm reading Naked Hope - a nurse wrote it about how humans react when they are striped of everything they know. So far it's really interesting and not at all something I would normally read. Which I like.

I started Lauren's series a few years ago and I love her... but couldn't get into the books. I hope you have better luck!!!

And Gone Girl is on my list of reads too!

If you have a Kindle you can check out books for free from Navy General Library Program online (you can probably do this at your local library too it just seems like there are more options and less wait time on NGLP). Recently finished "The Immortal Life of Henriette Lacks" and loved it.

Lean In is AMAZING. I got it from our local library, devoured it in 2 days, and plan to buy it on my kindle for our latest trek from japan to the u.s.!
