Hurray for Summer Reading!

Summer!  Sand, surf, BBQs, fruity drinks with umbrellas, and books!  Lots and lots of books.  I see summer as a time of literary exploration where I can muck about with titles and tombs I wouldn’t normally reading during the year because spare time is at a premium. Classics, gothic, mystery, crime, horror, historical. I keep a running list of titles of novels I want to read in Note on my  iPhone (I’ve learned the hard way NOT to keep this list on a piece of paper at home….) and accumulate books throughout the year.  A purchase here, a download there.  Here are the books I’ve tackled so far this summer:


  1. Boy, Snow, Bird by Helen Oyeyemi
  2. The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton
  3. Marya by Joyce Carol Oates
  4. The Killing Floor by Lee Child
  5. The Fire Witness Lars Keplar
  6. The Quick by Lauren Owen
  7. Bird Box by Josh Malerman
  8. Middlemarch by George Eliot  (ongoing…by no means anywhere near to being finished)
  9. The People in Trees by Hanya Yagagihara


Readers (me) are always looking for book suggestions so PEASE share your summer reading list!
