Going on vacation? I’ve got lots of suggestions for your Summer reading!
I am SO behind on my DVR and Netflix (OITNB and Bloodline — I’ll catch up one day?) because I’ve been spending every spare moment I have reading! I seem to go in spurts like this, and there is just something about the Summer that makes me want to pick up books more than usual. Lucy loves to spend a lot of time in the pool, and it’s actually easier than dealing with her hanging on me all day. So I pop her Puddle Jumper on her, hop on my raft with a book, and float for a couple of hours. By the time we get out, I’m halfway through my book and she’s ready for a nap.
Lately I’ve read this and this and LOVED them both. Also, did any of you get settlement money from Barnes and Noble or Amazon? I don’t *totally* understand the eBook lawsuit, but I had a Nook YEARS ago (haven’t used it in years and years) and I got $164 in Barnes and Noble Credit and $64 from Amazon! Needless to say, I went online and made a huge Barnes and Noble Order (they happened to have a 30% off deal going last week), so I have a box of 16 books coming to my house very soon. Not sorry!
If you’re looking for some good books to take on vacation or just read outside while the kiddos play, I’ve compiled some great lists for you!
14 Books That Will Keep You Guessing Til the End — if you love a good page-turner (I SO DO) that will keep you guessing, this is for you! Keep in mind that some of these books have crazy plot twists or dark undertones. Definitely not for readers looking for something light and fluffy.
15 Books to Add to Your Tween’s Summer Library List — Tweens are the hardest to pick out books for! My son is almost 12 and isn’t quite to the age where he can find great books on his own. It’s nice to have a good starting point when you head to the library. My son LOVES his Mincraft and YouTube, but I make sure he gets in a bit of reading every day as well.
Summer 2016 Beach Reads — these books are a bit fluffier, which makes them good beach reads…but they all have some substance. I love a fun book, but I never have been able to read just “fluff.” There is a bit of something for everyone on this list!
I created these lists as part of the eBay Influencer program! As usual, I am NOT trying to sell you anything and do not receive commission on sales. I AM, however, compensated as an Influencer, with complete freedom to write about anything I love and think YOU will love, too!!
Please comment or email me and let me know what you’ve been loving lately! I’m always looking for suggestions to add to my ever-growing wish list! You can follow me on Goodreads as well — I try my best to keep it updated!
Have a great day and thanks for reading!
