I love summer, because I feel like it’s ok to be lazy. Maybe this is just more of my twisted thinking, but when school lets out, I suddenly go on holiday in my mind.
Life is becomes all about easy meals and soaking up sunshine. It’s right and good to sit by the pool and chat with neighbors or catch up on your reading.
Everyone is nicer in the summer.
Have you noticed that or is it just my town? In cold places, it seems like everyone’s heart freezes a bit in the winter, but then spring comes and the hearts begin to thaw. By summer, it’s big smiles and trips to the ice-cream stand. I love it!
I don’t even think people who live in perpetual sunshine understand how good they have it.
All that to say, I’m working on my summer reading list. There are a few books that I’ve been meaning to read for a while now and so I begin today (provided my library has one of these books).
My Summer Reading List
MINIMALIST PARENTING: Enjoy Modern Family Life More by Doing Less
The Paris Wife: A Novel
Theirs Is the Kingdom: Celebrating the Gospel in Urban America
Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead
Savvy Chic: The Art of More for Less
Uglies (The Uglies)
Lessons from Madame Chic: 20 Stylish Secrets I Learned While Living in Paris
Uglies is a YA book my son read for school this year. Ever since, he’s been telling me that I should read it. I guess it made a impact on him. It’s a must read for me.
Now, what I really want to know is what’s on your summer reading list?
Are there books I should add to my list??
Or, have you read any of the books on my list and hated them??? At your suggest I may skip one or more.
I’d love to know what you think.
