Welcome to What I've Been Reading, where I share my (quick and personal) thoughts on what I've been reading this past month. For specifics (plot summary, etc.) about each book, click on the provided links.



What I'll Be Reading This Summer

Friday, June 16, 2017
I know for most of the country, summer is in full swing, and has been for quite a while now, but for me and my kiddos, summer starts today! I am so glad to finally be done with school. Bring on summer. And bring on summer reading! There's nothing like summer reading, whether it's reading by the pool or at the beach, or just reading on a blanket in my backyard. I thought it would be fun to gather together in one place all the books I hope to read this summer. My stack may be a little ambitious, considering how busy our summer is this year, but why not aim high, right? I've divided what I'll be reading this summer into four categories, MMD's Book Club picks, MMD's Summer Reading Guide personal picks, MMD's 17 Books Everyone Will Be Talking About This Summer personal picks and my personal picks. Bring on the books! (All book covers are linked to Amazon for more information! I've read a few already. Those I've read, I provide a (super) short review.)

MMD'S BOOK CLUB PICKS

I belong to MMD's Book Club. I highly recommend it. During the year, we read one book a month. During the months of June, July and August, we read five! Here's what we are reading this summer. 
Loved the Dry!
