Summer Reading Lists

The sun is shining, the sky is powder blue and we are getting ready to leave on our vacation; it is time to gather up those beach read books!

Below is a list of some of my favorite reads from this year, books that I feel will make great beach reads. Of course, I want to hear your suggestions as well. What books will you take on your vacation this summer?

In order my summer reading suggestions include:
  1. The Night Circus, this ranks first because this is my new favorite book! I loved this enchanting novel!
  2.   How to Eat a Cupcake, a light novel that will cause cupcake cravings, a perfectly delicious beach read.
  3. The Language of Trees, interesting and well written, a nice off the beaten path novel.
  4. Saving CeeCee Honeycutt, a Southern coming of age delight,
  5.  The Housekeeper and the Professor, for the serious literary fan, a smart and fascinating take on the “what ifs” of short term memory.

My to-read beach  list (I’ve been saving these in a special vacation pile):

The Peachkeeper, The Language of Flowers, A Discovery of Witches. I’ve also chosen two mysteries--  Kill Me if you Can by James Patterson and 9 Dragons by Michael Connelly.

Ahhh, for me there is nothing better than sand sun and a great beach read….yeah summer!


  1. Found another perfect beach read...Death Taxes and a French Manicure. Perfect beach title, right? And, the book is the well written intro to a new series. I have already read books one AND two!
