This year, my summer list includes some older titles so basically this is a list of books that I hope to read this summer. Many have been waiting patiently for me to pick them up so why not now? Here they are.
The Lincoln Highway by Amor Towles
Sea of Tranquility by Emily St. John Mandel
The IT Girl by Ruth Ware
How How We Go In the Dark by Sequoia Nagamatsu
Beartown Fredrik Backman
It All Comes Down to This Therese Anne Fowler
The Homewreckers Mary Kay Andrews
Elevation by Stephen King
The Swimmers by Julie Otsuka
The Candy House by Jennifer Egan
What books are you looking forward to this summer?
Good morning! This will be short and sweet as I haven’t too much to report. Thank you for all of the birthday wishes! This past weekend was fun. We hit Montecito, Santa Barbara and then hit Ventura Harbor so the pup could go for a road trip too. She got her fish and chips, well, one chip. She has a sensitive stomach so we are very careful with her food. Fish, not breaded. As you can see from the photo she loves a good road trip.
I try to buy a book on my birthday each year but this year, I didn’t. All of the books I want are coming up on my hold list and when you read a book in a couple of sittings it’s hard to justify $28-$30 for a hardcover. I shall wait, patiently. Maybe not so patiently for My Heart is a Chainsaw.
I am currently reading We Were Never Here, the current Reese pick. It’s interesting.
In other news, I’ve been watching Only Murders in the Building with Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez. It is so good. If you have Hulu, check it out. It’s funny and charming and reminds me of old school mysteries.
Unfortunately my daughter is not feeling well. She just got tested so please pray, think good thoughts, etc. It’s very hard to tend to her from afar.
Have a good rest of the week!
