When I was younger, I absolutely loved summer reading.
Stop judging me. Nerd kids are the best. #NotEmbarrassed
Maybe it was because my summer reading list meant swim team, Camp Merri-Mac and a trip to the beach were in store, or maybe it was simply that I love(d) reading… regardless, remembering my old summer reading lists still makes me smile. Not very surprising when you know how much I love office supplies… anyway. ahem. moving on.
So, in an effort to stimulate my brain and save my eyes from the perils of staring at only screens (computer, tv) constantly, I’m making a summer reading list for 2012!
Books To Read This Summer:
The Millennium Series:
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest – Stieg Larsson
Adopted for Life – Russell Moore
Sarah’s Key – Tatiana de Rosnay
Crazy Love – Francis Chan
Searching for God Knows What – Donald Miller
The Fault in Our Stars – John Green
Kisses from Katie – Katie Davis
Radical – David Platt
The Great Gatsby – F. Scott Fitzgerald (Not my first time reading this, don’t worry. An oldie but a goodie.)
Wanderlust – Elisabeth Eaves (Not only do we share the spelling of our name, but the word wanderlust describes my spirit better than any other word)
my dream reading location
The Girl Who Played with Fire - Stieg Larsson (August 2012)
Sarah’s Key – Tatiana de Rosnay (July 2012)
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo – Stieg Larsson (June 2012)
Searching for God Knows What - Donald Miller (May 2012)

Room – Emma Donoghue (January 2012)
The Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay - Suzanne Collins (October/November 2011)*
The Help – Kathryn Stockett (September 2011)
*Note: I re-read “The Hunger Games” in February before the movie was released in March 2012 and will probably do the same with the other two as those movies come out!
Have any suggestions to add to the list? I’d love to hear them. Also happy to give a review on any of these, just ask!
