Summer Reading 2017

Wednesday, June 28, 2017

For years now, I've been making summer reading lists for myself. It just didn't happen this year. I went back and forth over what to do and then I realized that I kind of have a list going in my head...

This summer, I plan to read whatever I make it around to. I'm back to reading a lot less again, which is just fine, but also means that planning my reading is more overwhelming than it is helpful. Life is full of seasons! The important thing is being able to recognize which one you're in and doing whatever you need to do to make the most of it.

This summer, I've got my eye on:

Making progress on C.S. Lewis's Space Trilogy

"This Side of Paradise" by F. Scott Fitzgerald

"To the Lighthouse" by Virginia Woolf

Getting started on The Maze Runner series 

I've made it to the Psalms in my Bible reading plan and I'm picking up E.B. White's essays, E.E. Cummings's poetry, and Packer's "Keep In Step With the Spirit" when I need to mix things up. Oh, and I'm still working my way through "HP and the Deathly Hallows", which means I am the last one of my siblings to finish reading this series. Surprise, surprise!

As I make my way through this "list", I'll be sure to post reviews!

What are you reading this summer?


  1. I'm doing that thing again where I stop reading sometime between May and's never intentional, it just happens. I started a book earlier in the month and made it about 10 pages in. We'll see whether or not I pick it up again or try something new.

  2. Hey there! I'm trying to be good and post and read blogs and comment. ;) I've missed it.

    I just finished The Orphan Train and am in the middle of The American Heiress. I found them on the Book Club shelves at the library and thought I would give them a try. Have you read these?

  3. in the garden of beasts-love Terror and an American family in Hitler's Berlin
    A man called ove
    Aging matters-finding your calling for the rest of your life
    God is red-the secret story of how Christianity survived and flourished in communist China
    Finishing the course with Joy by j i packer
    John G Patton (Banner of Truth)

    .... are the ones I have in my bag right now :-)


I love hearing from you! Please be sure to leave your e-mail so that I can reply. :)
