If any of my personal friends/family are reading this right now, don’t laugh! I’ve never been the biggest reader. Don’t get me wrong, in college, I read EVERYTHING (which, I think was not worth it). Hundreds of pages on end. But I’ve never been the person to pick up a book and read. I think I was just always active and never sat still! Hah! Not much different now….however, in the last year or so I’ve become more interested in reading. And as someone who’s always struggled to fall asleep, this has helped me a ton! It’s also just a great self rest/care activity!
So currently I’m reading What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty.
I’m preeeetttty slow. I can and do sometimes sit down and fly through one. But I tend to keep myself a little too busy so
sometimes most of the time it’s just 5-7 pages before bed. Which doesn’t even happen every night. Something to work on…
Anyway, here we go! I’ve provided a “Goodreads” link with all of the books in case you want to read a synopsis on the book!
Summer Reading List: Top 5
1. All the Light We Cannot See Anthony Doerr
From what I’ve gathered, this is romance between a French girl and a German boy during WWII. I have no idea why, but I’ve out of what I have read, I’ve always enjoyed books during the world wars/US Civil War. Who doesn’t love a good romance?!
2. The Kind Worth Killing Peter Swanson
Ok, I’m kind of hesitant on this one. I have a love hate thing with anything psychological but this one is supposed to be pretty suspenseful….which I also can’t get enough of sooooo. Also Julie AKA Pbfingers never fails to recommend a good read!
Again, WWII novels….this one has great reviews.
4. Orphan Train Christina Baker Kline
This just sounds like a story of sweet friendship including bits of history I don’t know much about!
5. Calm My Anxious Heart Linda Dillow
A faith-based book recommended to me by my grandmother a few years ago who loved it. I rarely reach for books that are not novels first. But I find I get so much from them! Looking forward to finally tackling this one!
Now, I’ll admit I probably won’t get through all of these during the summer, but it’s the list I’m using for now!
