2021 Summer Reads


summer readingSummer is coming, and hopefully, that means a little vacation time or lounging outside on the weekends with a good book when you have a few quiet moments. I love enjoying a good book and discussing it. In fact, I have spearheaded three book clubs! Audio, Kindle, or hard copy, I read or listen and typically enjoy them all. There is very rarely a book I don’t finish!  

This year I challenged myself on goodreads to read 40 books. If you don’t have goodreads, I highly suggest it. It’s a great way to keep track of what you’ve read and what you’d like to read in the future. I’ve taken a look at some of my “To Be Read” books and thought I would share them for some good summer reading suggestions.

Here are some of my “Summer Read” recommendations in a variety of genres. I am hoping to add these to my 40 book challenge too.
