    Let's start a new summer reading list. Not professional.
    Behind Closed Doors - Physco thriller
    Where the Crawdads Sing - Love, murder mystery, nature, poetry, easy read, a bit of everything
    Shopaholic series - I just found this funny and easy
    Rosie Project - Love story with aspergers if I recall correctly

    I've read all of those. Good choices.
    Today is our last day of school so I will be getting my reading list in order soon!
    My in person book club is reading I Know Everything by Matthew Farrell. We are doing a ZOOM meeting and the author will be joining us. I need to start reading that this weekend.

    Right now I’m reading The End of October. It came highly recommended. It’s good but not quite as good as I was expecting. We’ll see how I feel once I’m finished.

    My TBR list is hundreds of titles long and seems to grow every day. Right now, I'm a little more than halfway through The Family by Louise Jensen and Stomped by Jason Reynolds. Up next will likely be The Other Mrs. by Mary Kubica and Resistance Women by Jennifer Chiaverini. I'll probably read 20 - 25 books over the summer.

    I really want to continue with the Outlander series. I was lucky enough to grab most of them at a library book sale last year.

    I just finished The New Husband by D.J. Palmer. It was ok but not as good as his last book.

    I loved The Book Woman. If you liked that one you might like The Giver of Stars.

    I love the shopaholic series. Actually anything by Sophie Kinsella makes me laugh. My book preferences are books that are light hearted and nothing too heavy. My favourite authors to read are Patricia Scanlan, Marian Keyes and Adele Parks.

    Marian Keyes is an old favorite of mine! She actually has a new book coming out July 2.
    Along the same genre, I really enjoy books by Carol Snow. Wish she'd come out with a new one, it's been a few years.

    I’m getting ready to start Eli the Good by Silas House. I’ve read it before, but my book club is reading it for next week. It has been awhile, so I’m rereading.

    The author is local, too, which is part of why it was chosen by the group. He and I attended the same university in the same department at the same time, but never had classes together.

    How is everyone doing with their summer reading? I am reading on my Kindle as well as listening to audiobooks. Right now I'm listening to A Daughter's Truth by Laura Bradford. If you like Women's Fiction you might like this. The characters are (mostly) Amish and it's very interesting to read about the Amish culture. She is a somewhat local author that I've met at a book signing and her books are always so good.
