What are you reading?

So I checked out my list of "summer reads" that I posted back in May and I have loads more to add to them.

Here's the list in its original format:

* Ten Beach Road, Wendy Wax - READ
* Life's a Beach, Claire Cook

* The Wednesday Sisters, Meg Waite Clayton

* The Beach Trees, Karen White
* The Peach Keeper, Sarah Addison Allen
* South of Superior, Ellen Airgood
* Hello, Goodbye, Emily Chenoweth - READ
* Saving CeeCee Honeycutt, Beth Hoffman - READ

* Little Bee, Chris Cleave
* Bossypants, Tina Fey

* The Opposite of Me, Sarah Pekkanen

* The Girls, Lori Lansens

* Flirting with Forty, Jane Porter

I still plan on reading what I haven't hit yet there, and a handful more I'm listing below. Because what is summer for if not to catch up on your reading, right?

* The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott, Kelly O'Connor McNees
Traveling with Pomegranates, Sue Monk Kidd and Ann Kidd Taylor
* Folly Beach, Dorothea Benton Frank
* Sing You Home, Jodi Picoult
* 29 Gifts: How a month of giving can change your life, Cami Walker
* The One That I Want, Allison Scotch Winn
* The Last Girls, Lee Smith
* My Fair Lazy, Jen Lancaster
* Voluntary Madness: My Year Lost and Found in the Loony Bin, Norah Vincent
* I See You Everywhere, Julia Glass

Now I know I have big eyes, and I have to admit that I honestly don't figure I'll read all of these books before September, or before fall is fully upon us, but I like to have wishful thinking when it comes to books, so you get a larger list than I actually intend to get through!

Have you read any of these? And if so, which were your favorites? And if not - what's on tap for you this summer? Fill me in and happy reading!


  1. I'm not reading nearly as much as I thought I would... maybe I'm spending too much time on the phone *winks*.

    I just finished Mary Kay Andrews' Summer Rental and am reading Claire Cook's Best Staged Plans . I also have the other one I mentioned wanting to give to you!

  2. I got a bunch of books from the library sale a couple weeks ago. I just finished reading A Million Little Pieces. really good even if he exaggerated some. I'm reading The Nanny Returns now. Ok so far.

  3. This summer I have read more "summer" books than in past years. I 've read "On Folly Beach" by Karen White. Look forward to "The Beach Tree". Read "The Peach Keeper". She's a good author for a summer beach read.
