Ahh, summer. Summer is the time for teachers to catch up on all the things that get pushed to the side during the school year. For me, one of those things that gets pushed aside is Reading For Fun. I do read for fun during the school year, but it takes so long to finish one book. About the only time I have to read during the school year is once I go to bed. Well, you can imagine how that goes... After about two pages I fall asleep, and need to reread one of those pages the next night. I've been out of school for less than twenty days and have already read FOUR WHOLE BOOKS! I went to the library today and checked out another four. I am so excited!
My favorite summer hangout ~ my front porch! The bird feeders are blocking the view of the awesome rocking chairs. Click HERE to read about one of my lazy summer days.
My summer reading list thus far:
Stay by Emily Goodwin (my daughter) MY daughter ~ yes, my daughter!! wrote this book! This is the current ranking (as of 6/24/14): #87 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Women's Fiction > Mystery, Thriller & Suspense YAY! It is a gripping tale of a young woman who is kidnapped and forced into human trafficking.
Wedding Night by Sophie Kinsella This is another hit by one of my favorite authors. Sophie Kinsella's writing makes me laugh out loud.
Antiques Con by Barbara Allan This is the first book in this series I've read. It was a fun & fast front porch mystery read.
Alice's Tulips by Sandra Dallas I usually don't read historical novels, but I do enjoy Sandra Dallas's books. This book is told through letters written by Alice, a young wife of a Civil War soldier.
I'm currently reading something schoolish, but do have something in queue for when I finish.
