Summer Reading Lists {a lovely little linky!}

I. Love. Reading.

I have had my nose in a book for almost as long as I can remember. Car trips, waiting rooms, airplanes, before I go to sleep --- wherever there is time in my day. I'll admit, it's been hard to find time to read since I became a mama last August. But since summer has started I am really loving the extra bit of time I have to read throughout the day.

When I came across the linky party that the lovely Molly is hosting over at Lucky to Be in First!, I knew it would be the perfect post to help me squeeze back into my blogging shoes. :)


We'll start with a few books that I cannot wait to dive into!

Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult
Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee {coming July 14!)
Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty (I think this is on lots of lists!)
All Fall Down by Jennifer Weiner
We Were Liars by A. Lockhart

Here are a few of my favorite *recent-ish* reads! ;) Maybe you'll find a few to add to your list!

The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult {my ALL TIME favorite author}
That Night by Chevy Stevens {easy mystery-thriller read}
Still Missing by Chevy Stevens {another mystery-thriller with a little more thrill}
How to Steal a Dog by Barbara O'Connor {fantastic read-aloud for 3rd or 4th grade}
Heart Like Mine by Amy Hatvany {good chick lit; a new favorite author for me}

I'd love to hear your thoughts on any of the books I have on my lists. Let me know what you think! Make sure you link up with Molly if you're a bookworm too!

Until next time! :)


  1. I read "All Fall Down" last summer after seeing her on the Today Show....really good book. Easy read. This is a great list of books!

  2. I really liked Big Little Lies! I was surprised by the ending. Enjoy!

  3. I will have to check these out for sure this summer! I will try to link up later, but I have loved reading The Selection Series this summer. I am also FINALLY reading Divergent and the rest of the series.

  4. Leaving Time was SO GOOD! You will never think about elephants the same again!

  5. I loved The Storyteller & will have to check the others out. Enjoy your summer break!

  7. I just finished reading The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty this evening. I LOVED it! I also read her book What Alice Forgot. My next book will be Big Little Lies. I'll be out and about tomorrow to purchase!

  8. Great list...thank you!! I am always on the lookout for a new good read! I am currently reading Wayward Pines by Blake Crouch...eerie and suspenseful! When I go back to school in the fall I always like to shock my third graders with the stack of books I've read over the summer! LOL! You have a wonderful blog...thank you for sharing!
