Well, summer is ON in my house. The kiddos are on their second week of vacation, and the hubs (who is a teacher) will officially be off for the summer in a matter of days. You know what that means? Yes, beach time, Disneyland, lots of ice cream and visits to the free summer film festivals at the local theaters…but it also means lots of reading.
The family and I usually sprawl all over the sofas or floor at some point each day and read and read and read. I love moments like those. And sometimes we talk about what we’re reading, which I also love unless it’s my husband who does the talking. This is because he usually reads books about terrorists or serial killers (WHERE IS THE SWOON???). Otherwise, I love hearing what the girls are reading and telling them about what I’m diving into.
Currently, I have a ginormous stack of books on my nightstand. I’m in the middle of The List by Siobhan Vivian—so far I’m totally into it—and Froi of the Exiles by Melina Marchetta—hello, do you even need to ask? Of course it’s excellent. AND I’m getting ready to do a reread of The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson because I chose it for my book club (le sigh!). I also think I need to do a reread of some Dessen and throw in The Summer books by Jenny Han too. I’m having a Conrad/Belly craving right now!
So what are you reading this summer?
Oh yeah, I’m going all ’90’s on yo azz:
