Dishing It! with Serenity Now
Party time again!!! Time for July's Dishing It! with Amanda at Serenity Now.
This month's topic is "Your Summer Reading List".......perfect, love, love, love to read and have since I was younger. I don't have as much time to read as I used too-hhmmmm, wonder why??-but I still love it and it's a great way to relax especially before bed. I've also gotten really good at reading while I'm cooking, I figure I'm just standing there and have to be in the kitchen anyways-might as well enjoy it a bit!
Now a days, I'm usually reading light fiction because I'm either a. too tired to really concentrate or b. the kids are running around and I can't concentrate. It's hard to get into a book with a complex plot and lots of characters when you're falling asleep or stopping every few sentences to help someone out. I get a few magazines in the mail like Parent and Good Housekeeping and my guilty pleasure is definitely the People magazines my sister in law passes on to me.
I'm really looking forward to lots of reading this summer. On my Top 5 List right now are:
1. Private by James Paterson and Maxine Paetro
I don't read many mysteries but I have pretty much loved all the James Paterson books I've read. I love his Detective Alex Cross Series and his Women's Murder Club Series.
2. The Secret by Beverly Lewis
Last summer I read one series by Beverly Lewis and really enjoyed it. Her books mainly focus on the Amish Community. This book is the first of another series that includes The Missing and The Telling.
3. While My Sister Sleeps by Barbara Delinsky
Another author that I'll get a book by even if I don't know what the book is about. This one is about two sisters and sounds interesting.
4. The Pact: A Love Story by Jodi Picoult
Love this author too! Never been disappointed with one of her books.
5. Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer
This book is on my oldest daughter's summer reading list so I want to read it too. She already finished it and liked it.
Time to go to the library!!
