My Summer Reading List

summer reading list

I don’t know about you, but I’ve got a mile long list of books that I want to read, and I am constantly adding to it. So in order to shorten that list just a bit, I’ve decided to focus on 10 books that I will read by the end of the summer. Some of these works are “fun beach reads,” while others tackle more serious topics of a historical bent. My Summer Reading List:

Charleston by Margaret Bradham ThorntonReview

Fifth Avenue Artists Society by Joy Callaway

The Girl from the Savoy by Hazel GaynorReview

Villette by Charlotte Brontë

The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh

Mistress Firebrand by Donna Thorland

Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual by Michael Pollan

The Girls of Atomic City by Denise Kiernan

Quiet the Power of Introverts in a World that Can’t Stop Talking by Susan Cain

The Museum of Extraordinary Things by Alice HoffmanReview

I’ll be adding book reviews as I work my way through! What’s on your reading list for the summer?

This was the perfect first book to kick off my summer reading list. […]
