Summer Reading List

We’ve had a busy school year, folks. As we have hustled and bustled through it, I have not had much time for pleasure reading. Oh sure, I’ve read history and science and Bible, but haven’t had much time to sit still long enough for just-for-fun reading. Now that summer is here, I am looking forward to spending time in my porch swing with a few titles I’ve been eyeing. Here is what is on my list:

1. Start by Jon Acuff

2. 7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess by Jen Hatmaker

3. What Women Fear: Walking in Faith That Transforms by Angie Smith

4. Life of Pi by Yann Martel

5. Unbroken: A WWII Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption by Lauren Hillenbrand

6. Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

7. The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion

8. The Bronze Bow by Elizabeth George Speare

9. Good Masters! Sweet Ladies! Voices From a Medieval Village by Laura Amy Schlitz

10. Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking by Susan Cain

11. America the Beautiful: Rediscovering What Made This Nation Great by Ben Carson

12. The Wizard of Menlo Park: How Thomas Alva Edison Invented the Modern World
by Randall E. Stross
