Summer Reading List

Hey y'all,

Did anyone else always love the summer since it meant more trips to the library, the library's summer reading program, staying up late until 2 am finishing the latest Harry Potter book, and on occasion, some AP Literature summer reading? In college, summer meant finally getting to read "for fun" since I did so much required reading for my English literature courses. 

Every summer I tend to read more books and since Saturday is the official first day of summer, I thought it was time to share some books on my current summer reading list. I am lucky that our local library started "Books To Go" this week and I have an appointment this afternoon to grab a few books that have arrived off my holds list. I have been averaging five books a month this year so I am going to list 20 books I hope to read this summer and five others on my list if I am a more voracious reader. 

I am currently reading Tell The Wolves I'm Home and Be the Bridge: Pursuing God's Heart for Racial Reconciliation* so I am not listing them here since I hope to finish both before Saturday. Since I typically read fiction I am listing 15 fiction and ten non-fiction books as a starting point for my summer reading. I did share on my May Reads post that I wanted to increase the BIPOC authors I read this year. I marked all BIPOC authors with an asterisk. 

Non-Fiction

Stamped - Racism, Antiracism, and You* - August Book Club Pick
The Radium Girls - I might pick this for October's Book Club
