Summer Reading

For those of you who do not know me, I am an avid reader! I usually read 8-10 books a month depending on how long my kids let me read that month. With Summer in its present state, I, along with my kids, like to do a Summer reading program of some sort. The library does not acknowledge my list of what I have and have not read but my kids and I do. Kids like to see what they are doing actually has a point and if a parent follows the same rules and or program then they feel a sense of pride that an adult is doing it too. I don’t necessarily need a reason to read but If it sets my kids on the right path, then that is the reason I am using this time! 🙂

My girls set their goal of 100 books for the Summer! I am being the pushy parent who ensures that this goal is met (pissy kids or not) so I am setting myself up with a goal as well. MY goal is more about the book title and less about the amount. So I am posting online my Summer reading list in hopes of having its online presence pressure me into reaching my goal!

A Bend in the Road-N. Sparks-FINISHED
Longest Ride-N. Sparks
Anna Karenina-Tolstoy-FINISHED
Tess of the D’Urbervilles-Hardy-FINISHED
Raven Boys
(Finish) House of Night Series (2 books remain)
Great Gatsby-Fitzgerald
The Hobbit
War and Peace-Tolstoy
Sense and Sensibility-Austen
(Finish) Pride and Prejudice-Austen-FINISHED
Dracula-Bram Stoker
Sherlock Holmes-V2
Catch 22

Okay…here we go!

Update: OCT.

As it so happens, work and kids take up A LOT of time! BUT… no worries, I have indeed read a few books on my list and many more that are not.I have a problem you see. I can’t just set myself a book goal. Doesn’t work. What happens is I come across a title and description by accident, fall in temporary love, and start reading it. That is exactly what happened this Summer and even right now. However I will go back up top and give an update on what I have read and have not read. Thanks for reading! 🙂
