Summer Reading List 2017

I am so excited to sit down, put my feet up and FINALLY catch up on my laundry list of "free reading" I have been wanting to do. Summer is the time where I make time to escape and let myself get lost in a good book without any guilt!

I have to say, I definitely have more WANT to read books for this summer. I never seem to quite find the time or balance during the school year to get any free reading done. Between teaching, filling my wifely obligations, my boys' baseball practices and games, lending my chauffeur services to my two children (and others, of course) my days fill up quickly. Please tell me you can relate and that I am not alone!!!! Now that summer is here, I am ready to find the time to sit down and read a few good books.


The Pact is a heart wrenching love story between two teenagers that ends in tragedy. Get the tissue box ready because you are going to need it!

The Other Boleyn Girl is a fantastic historical fiction book about Mary and Anne Boleyn and their rise to power with their love Henry VIII. I couldn't put this book down!


The Identicals Several friends have mentioned this book, so it is at the top of my reading list this summer. 

Grit Genius v Grit which will win out? I think grit will get anyone on the path to success. I can't wait to read and find out.

The Teenage Brain As a mom of a teenager, I have to get started on this book. Talking to my teenager gets me shaking my head on a daily basis. I need to understand his ridiculous comments, vegetative state and horrible communication skills so I don't lose my mind so easily! I hope this helps make me a better mom.

The Salt House Anything that is Jody Picoult-esque is right up my ally. This is a book that I know is going to tug at my heart strings. Bring it on!
