"If a man wants to read good books, he must make a point of avoiding bad ones; for life is short, and time and energy limited."
Today I wanted to talk about what I'm going to read this summer. The last few books I've read have been Self Improvement Books and I'm ready to just lose myself in a few books while drinking iced tea on my patio! I'd love to see all of you do a similar post so that we can all find new books to read. And friend me on Good Reads if you haven't already!
Good Enough to Eat by Stacey Ballis is available on amazon, kindle and iBook. I got my copy from Teri at Mighty M Family. This is the story of Melanie...I woman who lost half her body weight, opened a gourmet cafe and then her husband left her for a fat chick.
The American Heiress: A Novel by Daisy Goodwin. This is the story of Cora Cash, an American heiress in the 1890's who bags an English Duke.
Next is Burnt Mountain by Anne Rivers Siddons. It comes out on July 19th and is the story of Thayer Wentworth, a tomboy who grows up and returns to her old summer camp where she must confront dark secrets.
And lastly....because I'd love to escape to a beach this summer (but it's not going to happen) I'll be reading On Folly Beach by Karen White. This is the story of Emmy, a young woman who is getting over the loss of her husband. She buys a book store in Folly Beach, South Carolina. She finds love letters in the store that lead her to details of a possible murder and mysterious disappearance during WWII.
Edited to Add: I finished Good Enough to Eat in 24 hours...couldn't put it down! So I picked up a new read at Target just based on the cover and the blurb on the back. It's The Summer We Came to Life by Deborah Cloyed and I think I'm going to love it because it's about love and friendships and set on a beach. If you want this book when I'm done with it....shoot me an email or leave a comment.
Edited July 4th: I've added another book to my list! I kept seeing friends on Good Reads reading this or putting it on their TO-READ list so when I was out at a REAL book store on Friday night...I saw it and I bought it. Paid WAY too much for it...but I had to have it. The book is Don't Breathe a Word: A Novel by Jennifer McMahon and it's kind of a scary mystery about a missing girl.
What are you reading this summer?
