I have not had as much time to read lately as I would like to, but reading still remains my favorite past time. I have been getting lots of questions about what I’m reading and what’s on my reading list, so I thought it would be fun to share that with y’all today. If I had more time to read right now, these are the books that would be at the top of my list to read before the summer ends. In fact, I am about half way through these first two books right now and they are so good! …
I think this is one of my favorite posts of the year. Why? Well, I LOVE to read. It has always been my favorite pass time. Getting lost in a good book is a great escape from the hustle and bustle of the every day. After a lot of perusing the new books releasing this year, I have pulled out the ones I am most looking forward to reading! Also, a few old titles to catch up on if you haven’t read them yet.
I’ll be honest, when I was looking at last year’s post: 16 Books to Read in 2016, I realized I didn’t even read half of the titles I had planned on. Of course, we also weren’t exactly planning on having another baby this past year, either. Life sure is funny that way. This year, maybe I will have more time to read and travel. I can normally finish a book when we are road tripping some place and I am planning to travel a good bit more with our family this year.
I love to read, but I haven’t had a lot of time to dive into books this year. With the arrival of our new baby and moving, I feel like I won’t have a lot of time to read before the new year, but I am going to really put forth effort. It truly is my favorite pastime and I have always enjoyed reading. Here are a few holiday-related and non-holiday books to add to your reading calendar this month!
The Weekeners by Mary Kay Andrews
Synopsis from Goodreads: Some people stay all summer long on the idyllic island of Belle Isle, North Carolina. Others come only for the weekends-and the mix between the regulars and “the weekenders” can sometimes make the sparks fly. Riley Griggs has a season of good times with friends and family ahead of her on Belle Isle when things take an unexpected turn. While waiting for her husband to arrive on the ferry one Friday afternoon, Riley is confronted by a process server who thrusts papers into her hand. And her husband is nowhere to be found.
So she turns to her island friends for help and support, but it turns out that each of them has their own secrets, and the clock is ticking as the mystery deepens…in a murderous way. Cocktail parties aside, Riley must find a way to investigate the secrets of Belle Island, the husband she might not really know, and the summer that could change everything.
Told with Mary Kay Andrews’ trademark blend of humor and warmth, and with characters and a setting that you can’t help but fall for, The Weekenders is the perfect summer escape.
The summer and holidays are my absolute favorite times of year to read lots of novels I’ve been meaning to get to, or just haven’t had time to read during the “school months.” I am so excited about this summer because a couple of my favorite authors are releasing new books at the beginning of the season – just in time for our vacations! Mary Kay Andrews, Liane Moriarty and Emily Giffin are just a few authors releasing new books this season and I am so excited to read all of the titles listed below!
One of my favorite posts every year is when I share the books I plan to read. Why? Because I love to read and I put a lot of thought into what I want to read every year. After all, there are only so many months in a year and I have two babies, so there isn’t as much time for reading these days as I’d like and I want to make sure that the books I enjoy are worth the read.
I love linking up with the Literary Junkies book club each month to discuss one of my favorite hobbies: reading and books!
This is a list of books I hope to read this year. My list ranges from classics to books coming out this year. What is on your 2014 reading list?
