Time to look forward to the Summer Book List! No I know that my mother is already eagerly anticipating the yard work to which I will be enslaved, and there is that whole wedding thing to plan (but seriously – if I can’t plan ONE DAY in 7 months, there’s a problem), but I am hoping for some quality pool time to work on my non-existent tan and read some good books.
Here’s the summer reading list for this year:
- Winter’s Tale by Mark Helprin because I have heard tons of good things about it, the cover is cool, and Liz has a copy I can steal.
- The Brothers Karamozov by Dostoyevsky because if I put it on the list every summer I will eventually read it.
- The Meaning of Marriage by Tim Keller because I have heard nothing but positive things about it, and you know, I do kind of think about marriage every now and then.
- Born to Run by Christopher McDougall because I started it and never finished it so I feel like a poser with it on my shelf.
This list is currently pathetically short because my brain is fried from the semester. Please comment below with some good books to add to my summer reading list! And people, this is not the time to get all intellectually snooty and recommend Dante’s Inferno. We are talking Hunger Games type of book here. (Please refer to last year’s summer reading list for inspiration.) This is summer. This book will need to get cozy beside my spf 30 and my towel with the smiling suns on it. Let’s be realistic.
