It is summertime, which mean there is plenty of time to find a shady tree and find a good read! I love the summer because it means I can finally get to the long list of books I have been dying to read all year long. There is nothing better than soaking in the sun and a good book. I rarely read anything that is instructional or educational because I have spent the whole school year reading textbooks. This time of year is when I have the time read whatever I want to read. There are five categories that I always read to get my summer fulfillment.
1). Make me want to change the world book
Last summer I read: "Middle of Everywhere" by Mary Pipher which is about stories about refugees and their struggles and entertaining challenges to adapting to the American culture.
This summer I hope to read: "The Power of Words" by Nancy Leigh DeMoss, which is about the cause and effect of media on different genocides in the 1900s.
2). A non stop page turner, stay up until the dead of night and read in 3 days book
Last summer I read: "The Passage" by Justin Cronin, which is a story about the United States in a vampire apocalypse.
This summer I hope to read: "The Twelve" by Justin Cronin which is the sequel to the "The Passage".
3) A classic
Last summer I read: "La Casa de los Espirtus" by Isabel Allende, which is a famous story placed in the history of Chile.
This summer I hope to read: "El Llano en Llamas" by Juan Rulfo which is a classic novel of Mexico during the Mexican revolution.
4). A quick read
Last summer I read: "The Five People you Meet in Heaven" by Mitch Albom, which is a "feel good" book about life and choices.
This summer I hope to read: "Mr. Churchill's Secretary" by Susan MacNeal, which is a young adult book about a woman living in England during WWII.
5). A MSP book
Last summer I read: "The Deliberation" by Donna Brown, which is an exciting love story from the Christian perspective.
This summer I hope to read: "Soul Hunter" by Blair Bohlan, which I can't wait to read!
I am so excited to get my reading on this summer!
