Ideally we all have a little more time for things we WANT to do, not HAVE to do. I am personally taking summer classes, but I also hope to have some more time to read things I want to in my leisure time. What about you all? What do you hope to be reading on the beach? By the pool? Listening to on that road trip? OR sharing with your munchkins?
Here is a list of great summer reads in case you have not decided yet.
A Tale for the Time Being, by Ruth Ozeki
I JUST read this one a few weeks ago and cannot stop thinking about how wonderful it was, I may just have to reread it.
The Signature of All Things, by Elizabeth Gilbert
I mention this one a lot, but since it is coming out in paperback in June, it is a must for your summer reads.
The Casual Vacancy, J.K. Rowling
An intense modern drama unfolds in a small town, full of layers, ideas, political prose and so much more, it’s a great read.
The Tao of Pooh, by Benjamin Hoff
Perfect for any age and anybody, though Taoist, this little book lets one breathe easier and lighter in this chaotic world.
Big Brother, by Lionel Shriver
A rich family drama, coming out in paperback this summer.
Gone Girl, by Gillian Flynn
One of the biggest hits from the last few years, catch up on the story before the movie hits theaters this fall.
Beautiful Ruins, By Jess Walter
Who doesn’t love a story that captures the imagination through the gorgeous Italian landscape?
