It’s that time of year again! Earlier this month, some of my siblings and I signed up for our library’s summer reading program. (Half of them have already reached their goals. XD) I had so much fun helping my sisters pick out what to read! I passed out index cards and recommendations, and we spent a whole half hour just sitting in front of the bookshelf and talking books. So much fun. 😀 My sister Anna blogged about her summer reading list and shared her cute little avatar. Here’s mine…
My avatar is cosplaying as my favorite character from The Princess in Black series, Princess Sneezewort. And, yes, my youngest sister helped me get her costume right. 😉
Last summer, I purposed to read six books, but this time I have a couple more planned. 😉 (They just aren’t pictured. 😉 )
After enjoying Melissa Tagg’s novella Three Little Words, I’ve decided to give more of her books a try. Here to Stay sounded super cute, so I bought it and one other of her books on a ridiculously good sale. 😉 It’s time to read this one! 😀
This summer in the non-fiction category, I’m planning to read Sing! by Keith and Kristyn Getty. I’ve already started it and have been very blessed by the couple chapters I’ve read. 😉
Finish That Series
I accidentally read a spoiler for Ember Falls by S.D. Smith, and it had me so afraid for my precious characters that I’ve been avoiding reading this book. Now that the third one is out and I can safely binge read them back to back, I think I’m brave enough to read it. (Also, The Last Archer has super whet my reading appetite for these books again. 😉 )
I checked my Goodreads, and it’s only been about eight months since I last read Kate’s Innocence by Sarah Holman. But with the upcoming release of book three in the series, I was reminded how much I love these books. Also, I finally bought a paperback copy of this book, and so it’s the perfect excuse for a reread. (Confession: I’ve already knocked this one out, I was so eager to read it again.) 😉
Everything about Until We Find Home by Cathy Gohlke intrigues me. 😉 The gorgeous cover, the concept, the name… I’m a big fan of Sir Nicholas Winton, an Englishman who helped Jewish children escape to England during WW2. This book seems to have a similar situation, so I’m excited about that. 😉 And C.S. Lewis is in it too. 😀 😀
Lately, the Lord has laid children with disabilities on my heart, so Auggie’s story is one I’ve been wanting to read for a while. (I also REALLY want to watch the movie.) So, Wonder by R.J. Palacio is definitely on my summer read list. It’s time.
This one is not pictured because it isn’t out yet, but I’m reading Phantoms by Denver Evans the very second I can get my little paws on it. 😀 ❤ I really enjoyed and was blessed by this author’s debut novel Shallows last month, so this sequel is high on my list. 😀 *rubs hands together in anticipation*
From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E.L. Konigsburg sounds like a super fun, quirky, light read. 😉 Lately, I’ve been discovering some children’s classics I’d missed, so I’m adding this one to the list of books to try out. I’ll have to hunt it down at my library soon. 😉
I will also be whittling away at my library book stack and any random advanced reader copies that blow my way, but these books are my planned reads. 😉
What are you reading this summer? Have you read any of these books?
