If you remember, back in the spring I came up with a summer reading list and posted a couple of the books I was looking forward too and what I hoped to read. Summer is always hit and miss with reading for me. The kids are home and we are busy doing activities. I don’t always get time for reading. Last summer I think I read 3 books total. This summer I did much better, but I still have a lot of books left on my to-read list. So many books and never enough time, right?
I was really excited to read all three of the books above – as they were all released this summer. And I loved them all! Such great books.
I also read Pumpkin Roll, by Josi Kilpack that was on my runner up summer reading list and I then finished 7 other books in that series. So that was a big chunk of reading in July!
Smart Women Know When to Say No, Dr. Kevin Leman
21 Days to a more Disciplined Life, Crystal Paine
I loved the 21 days book – Crystal Paine is always a hit with me. The Smart Women book was alright, not my favorite, and not really the advice that I was looking for at the time. But I did read Time Management Mama, by Sarah Korhnak and Beth Anne Schwamberger from my runner’s up list and I really loved it. It was a great book with lots of resources and ideas.
A couple other favorites that I found this summer, that didn’t make it on my original summer reading list but are totally worth mentioning:
Castle Hangnail, Ursula Vernon
The Miracle Morning, Hal Enrod
Les Miserable: Children’s Edition, Matthew Larsen
Wedding Cake, Josi Kilpack
How was your summer reading? Have any favorites or ones you couldn’t stand? I would love to hear how it all went!
