Summer Reading

It's the most wonderful time of the year....when teachers get to become human again!!
We can catch up on sleep, use the restroom WHENEVER we want and recover from the past 10 months.

What I reaaaaly love about summer is the chance to READ! Not books that are required for PLC's or PD but all the chick lit books I LOVE!!

I am linking up with Molly from Lucky To Be In First to share some book ideas.

Here are some books I read last summer that were perfect beach or pool reads.
             1. After You- Sequel to Me Before You
             2. Who Do You Love- really anything by Jennifer Weiner is  good!
             3. The Island- I found Erin Hilderbrand last summer and fell in love with her writing
             4. ANY book from Nicholas Sparks- read them before you seen his movies. :)

Yesterday I went out and got some books to start my summer off with.


If you have never read ANY of these book you must!! I have loved this series since it started back in 2000. If you are looking for a funny easy read while sitting at the pool this one is for you!

                                                                     Finding Audrey

While I was looking for the newest Shopaholic book I came across Finding Audrey. I read the back cover and even though it is considered a young adult book, it sounded good to me.  Here is a snippet about it.

Audrey is a teenage girl suffering from Social Anxiety Disorder. She has experienced bullying, and as a result has become virtually a prisoner in her own home. This is the story of her journey to recovery, with the help of a boy named Linus. It’s sad in places, but funny and romantic too.

Another book that is on my list is Wonder

SO many people I know have read it and recommended it to me. That will definitely be in my bag this summer too!

                                                                   A Summer Affair

At the end of the summer last year I discovered Elin Hilderbrand. I loved her style of writing and could not put the book down. So when I spotted a display of some of her other books I knew I had to grab one.

Over on Facebook this morning I found this other blog post that list 13 books that everyone will be talking about. There are already 3 or 4 that are on my list!
13 books to read this summer

I am always looking for other great books to read. Yes, I love those romantic and funny stories and am willing to broaden my horizons. Head over here to get some more recommendations!

May your days be filled with sunshine, warm temps, sunscreen and lots of great books!


  1. I absolutely LOVED Finding Audrey. Elin Hilderbrand books are perfect for the beach!
