Summer Reading List

We are headed to a vacation in Mexico at the end of this month. Because we will be at a family reunion, we will have lots of babysitters and that means I’ll actually be able to read! I’m making a list of books that I want to read, both on my trip and for the rest of the summer.

Summer Reading List

1. The Nest 
This is a story about grown up siblings and the fate of their family inheritance that they depend on.

2. The Girl on the Train

I’m am really intrigued by the story of a girl who takes a train to work and sees the same couple everyday, but one day they disappear.

3. After You
This is the sequel to Me Before You, which I read last summer, a story about an ordinary girl who’s life changes after she takes a job looking after a quadriplegic.

4. The Weekenders
A novel about a woman who investigates her husband’s finances after he mysteriously dies.

Non Fiction
5. How to Talk So Your Kids Will Listen
his one is pretty self explanatory. This is good for talking to your young children and teens.

6. 5 Love Languages for Children
Yes, another parenting book. I don’t usually read them, but as the kids are growing up, I’m facing more challenges and I’m hoping books like this can help out and give more insight.


7. The Gifts of Imperfection
Learning to embrace and be happy with who you are. Definitely something we can all afford to read about.


8. Spark Joy
This is the follow up to The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up as we continue to attempt to live a less cluttered life.

Spark of Joy
What is on your summer reading list?

  1. I recently finished The Girl on the train (will be reviewing it soon!) 😀 And am reading Spark Joy right now. Will check out some of your picks. Thanks for sharing. I am always looking for book recommendations 😀

  2. I’m going to add some of those to my list! I highly recommend Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert for your nonfiction selection. Enjoy your time in Mexico and get lots of reading in!

  3. I had a summer reading list of 6 books, then I ended up reading them all in one week 😀
    I enjoyed the girl on the train. It was a bit different as the main character was just not someone relate -able, she was cooky and a mess, which made for a good change.
    Also read luckiest girl alive which was absolutely pants to be honest. beyond disappointed with that one.
    I also read kill me again and behind closed doors, both of which I enjoyed.
    (I seem to be reading a lot about wives with husband issues for some reason…..Ummmm)

    1. One week?! Wow, they must have been good! I’ll look into kill me again and behind closed doors. And thanks for the new slang…absolutely pants, i’ll have to try and use that 🙂

  4. I recently read The Girl On The Train – it was one of my first mysteries and I enjoyed it, although I found it somewhat predictable. Right now I’m reading The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out Of The Window and Disappeared. Long name and unusual story. Definitely keeps you guessing. I wasn’t sure how I felt about the point of view (third person omniscient) but I see why the author used this point of view. Halfway through it and then I’m going to start Wicked.

    1. Looks like you are well into your summer reading list and enjoying it Ritu! Let’s see if I can predict for Girl on the Train too 🙂

  5. I enjoyed The Girl on the Train and absolutely loved Me Before You – i am currently reading the Room, and have the Nest and When Breath Becomes Air on my upcoming list……
