Fun topic this week for Top Ten Tuesday. When the warm weather rolls around I really enjoy sitting outside and reading on lazy summer days. Here are the books in my TBR mountain that I have bumped up and I hope to read at least three of this summer, hopefully more.
I’ve been dipping in and out of The Stand by Stephen King for several weeks now, and I hope to have it finished by the end of the summer.
I’ve had Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen sitting on Mr. TBR collecting dust for some time. I would love to read this one soon.
I only read Elin Hilderbrand books during the summer months and Barefoot might be one I will choose to dive into this summer.
Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier has been calling my name for a while now. I need to read this one and I can totally envision myself immersed in this novel while lounging by the pool and sipping lemonade.
I have four of the Christina Lauren sitting on my shelves. I think Beautiful Bastard would make for the perfect spicy read on a hot summer day. I love this title and cover.
My son gifted me 11/22/63 by Stephen King this past Christmas and I and definitely bringing this one along on vacation this year. Each summer for the past few years we both bring along a King novel to the lake where we vacation, so this is without a doubt my vacation read this time around. I’m bringing Misery for him to read this summer.
I have to mention that it makes my heart sing that both my kids enjoy reading. I read to them from a young age and made library trips a regular thing in hopes to instill in them a love of reading, and it worked.
My son is mostly a vacation reader, with work and school he doesn’t have too much free time to read during the year, but on vacation he will sit and read with me.
I’d love to dip into some Nicholas Sparks this summer and The Lucky One looks perfect. Every time I read Sparks, I tear up.
My daughter read and loved If I Stay by Gayle Forman recently and I promised her I would read it as well, so this is another one I will be reading soon. She cracks me up because she listened to this one on YouTube, while following along with the actual physical copy of the book so she said she felt like she was being “read to”. She finished this in about a day and a half this way.
Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion is another one my youngest read and enjoyed, she wants me to read it so we can discuss. I’m a zombie fan so this one does look like fun. She told me there’s a cute twist on this zombie love story.
That covers my list of books I want to read this summer. What does your list look like?
Happy reading and happy summer!
