This weekend I stumbled upon another book list/ challenge for reading (something I JUST LOVE!). In reading this post (that was all about books taking place on an island) I was inspired to look through books and find some new reading material just for me to enjoy this summer.
I love reading; I almost always have a book tucked into my purse or in my car just in case.... just in case I get a spare moment to wait I'll read. Just in case I am unexpectedly alone I have "company." You know... just in case.
Anyhow as much as I love to read there is just something about summer that calls out to me to find new books. Often I'll read about seaside towns, island trips, and always about relationships. I love novels about finding love, mending fences between family members, making those new best friends that feel like family or keeping those "sister" bonds going.
I have so many old favorite novels that often it's hard for me to just jump in and start reading something new. I often find I gravitate towards series for that exact reason; I know the characters I'l be reading about and they often just cement those bonds further.
This year I vowed to branch out and try some new books... but I do enjoy reading books that remind me of summer; seaside towns, simple pleasures, warm weather...
Here are some of the books I hope to read this summer:
The Island House by Nancy Thayer
Here's to Us by Elin Hilderbrand
Two by Two-- Nicholas Sparks
House Rules by Jodi Picoult
Body Surfing by Anita Shreve
A Second Chance by Bryan Mooney
I can't wait to get to the library!
