As a kid I always participated in our local library’s summer reading program.  It was always a fun way to spend the summer, along with long days in the pool.  I always looked forward to the stickers and prizes I got when I finished another title.  I remember one year I had a theme — only mystery books!  Even then I was pretty organized, I guess.  Summer reading has a special place in my heart and now that summer is coming to an end — I figured I’d share a few books that I’ve yet to read, want to read and am currently reading.  What’s on your list?
Here’s what I’m currently reading:
  • The Shining Girls by Lauren Beukes
  • Entwined with You by Sylvia Day: Entwined with You is the final book in the “racy” Crossfire series.

I want to read:
  • Dark Places by Gillian Flynn
  • The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh
  • The White Princess by Phillipa Gregory
  • And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini
  • A Street Cat Named Bob by James Bowen
  • Winger by Smith Andrew
  • NOS4A2 by Joe Hill
  • Note to Self by Aline Simone
  • Brilliance by Marcus Sakey
  • Sisterland  by Curtis Sittenfeld
I’ve read these books and you should too!
  • You Knew Me When by Emily Leibert: Emily Leibert is a friend of mine and I am so excited for the release of her upcoming novel on September 3rd.  You Knew Me When landed her on Target’s list of emerging authors! It’s a fun, must read for after labor day. Pre-order your copy today!
