My Summer Reading List

This is the first summer since 2009 where I have had a summer to read things besides textbooks!  I have had a blast remembering how much I love reading!  Titles in RED are finished!!

My favorite reading spot at 3299 North Canal Way.  Big comfy leather recliner, two different throws, great lighting, my iPad and holder, with a basket of writing materials close by. 

My Summer Reading List includes:

The Sweet Life in Paris by David Lebowitz

Consider the Fork by Bee Wilson

The Sharper Your Knife by Kathleen Flinn

The Obituary Writer by Ann Hood

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

The Other Typist by Suzanne Rindell

Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker by Jennifer Chiaverini

The Last Letter from Your Lover by Jojo Moyes

Issac's Storm by Erik Larson

A Road Trip into America's Heartland by  John Drake Robinson

The Girl in the Italian Bakery by Kenneth Tingle

Happiness for Two by Alexandra Stoddard

There doesn't seem to be a theme this year, just getting my hands on any book that looks good to read.  At the rate I am going, I will need to add books to the list.  My daughter, Ashley, is checking books out from her library and I believe that is what I will need to do, too.

Any recommendations out there?


  1. That's a long time to not have any reading for fun! You're way overdue. Hope that you have a blast going through your list. I've just started reading some of Monica Wood's things. She's a Maine writer.

  2. Well, I see several that I've read. I loved Gone Girl and The Obituary Writer - and I see The Other Typist on your list! Did you like "The Sharper Your Knife"?

  3. You've already read quite a bit!

    I'll have to check Amazon to see if Happiness for Two is a new one. I thought I'd read all of AS's books.


Comments are the new hugs!
