Summer Reading...

Summer reading is just the best, don't you think?  Well, my sweet friend, Amanda, over at Serenity Now has a blog party going on for great summer reads, and I don't like to be left out of the party so I thought I would jump in.  Please pop over and check out some other great recommendations for indulging in the fine art of Summer reading!

So far this summer I have read:

Now, this is a long awaited book for me.  Charles Martin is currently my favorite author.  I read this in the two days that our movers were at our house in Georgia packing up.  It was a wonderful escape and I actually left it as a "parting gift" for my dear neighbor, Susan.  We are kindred souls when it comes to reading, so I knew she had to share this book with me.  The only sad part is that I won't be there to sit beside her on our front porch rockers and talk about it when she finishes! Trust me, Charles Martin doesn't disappoint with his latest release! 

I also just finished up The Help.  When I first picked this up, I wasn't really feeling it would be all that great, but isn't that just the most wonderful thing about books....surprises lie between the covers.  The Help turned out to be one of the best books I have read in a really long time. 

I also recently read Saving Cee Cee Honeycutt and, though it was a much lighter read than The Help or The Mountain Between Us, it was a good book!  I look forward to seeing more from this writer.

Now on to my "about to read" list:

So, what have you read that has just been wonderful this Summer?


  1. Ooohh--the two on your "To Read" list look interesting! :) Great list! Thanks for joining in. :)

  2. I also read THE HELP, this summer...wonderful book.

    It took me a while to sorta get into it, but once I did I couldn't put it down!

    I'll have to check out your other suggestions.


Thank you for stopping by...leave a little of your sparkle before you go!
