My Personal Summer Reading Challenge

I started reading on June 1st for summer but have been remiss at getting this post up sooner. I shared two review books with you recently and am currently reading the third one from that stack. I have not taken any more currently so that I can focus on a few other things this summer that are more pressing. We have our youngest finishing up his junior year by the 15th and then we start the year long process of senior year. First of all, I am in total shock that we have reached this place. Secondly, I have determined to take memory snapshots all the way through this process. It has been a joy to have him to ourselves for the last 3 years as our other children have not been permanent residents here outside of a few coronavirus months. He has been in an “only child” mode and we have enjoyed our time with him as the “baby” of the family. That being said, I am also off social media a whole lot more these days and am currently reading a few books that might push me to take the leap to be off completely except for this blog. The Four books in progress are…

Current Review Books

The stacks I have set aside for the rest of the summer are here but I reserve the right to change or add to at any time. LOL Which I tend to do but as of today, June 6, 2021 (D-Day) this is my story and I’m sticking to it!

What are you reading this summer? I would love to know. Drop me a comment below with your list or share your blog link if you have a post on summer reading. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Hi Leann! Your summer picks look interesting, I’ll be curious what you think of the Introverted Mom, I may just pick it up. I’m currently reading Summer by Edith Wharton. I’m trying to (and its very hard…I have banned myself from entering book stores until I get through the books I have) not purchase any books. I’m also having fun reading young adult literature or younger chapter books that I didn’t ready at those ages like Farley Mowat and Beverly Clearly. Louise Erdich is becoming one of my favorite authors. I am enjoying reading authors from the early 1900’s as well where Willa Cather is one of my go to authors in this era. Lastly I recently just finished The Sound of Waves by Yukio Mishima. Have a good summer of reading!!

  2. Hey, Leann! I’m glad you’re pulling back from social media. Good idea! I am reading The Darling Buds of May by H.E. Bates. Rollicking good fun, but a bit “earthy”. Love the Larkin family! Happy Monday!

  3. Cap took the big leap off social.media and is quite happy with his choice. Lol I’m there less, and that works for me now. You have a lot of good books to go through! I have Voddies book, Strong and Courageous by Tom Aschol, I still need to finish a book I started a few years ago, yikes, and whatever fiction I find in the audio. Lol

    I am praying his Senior year is full of good positive memories for you all!!
