My Summer 2014 Reading List

It's that time of year again. Warm weather and semi-lazy days - I don't think with small children that truly lazy days ever happen, but we sure try for some during the summer. I promised a sharing of what I hoped to read this summer, and here it is. Halfway through this summer, I'm finally sharing what I'm reading or hoping to read!

Reading happens in small spurts around here these days. I feel that depending on the habits and temperament on the newborn, reading can either increase or decrease once that little one joins the family. Most days little man is super content; however, that contentment stems from him being held (usually in a carrier). I love baby wearing, but it doesn't always equal lots of snuggly reading time. Plus it's pretty hot, and having him lay in my lap just makes us both uncomfortably warm.

As he's happier for longer stretches, I hope to set up a blanket in the backyard where I can plop down the baby with a wooden ring or something and myself with a book, and we can both be happy whilst the two bigger boys find adventure around us.

My Summer Reading List is often a mix of what I have on my yearlong Reading Goal list and whatever catches my fancy elsewhere. This year is no different. I gathered some ideas from you guys over on the Facebook page about a month back as well as from family and friends I know in Real Life, and here you have it:

My Summer Reading List for 2014:



The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner

Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day by Winifred Watson

How about you? Have you read any good finds yet this summer? What's on your 'to read' before the summer days run out?
