Happy July readers! It is that time of year again where I spend the majority of my vacation reading. Here’s a look at my Summer reading recap for June 2016.
I have to say that my taste in reading is extremely varied. The bulk of my reading centers around reading a ton of children’s books because I am in charge of the children’s department at my local bookstore. I take my job very seriously, and do my best to recommend appropriate books.
But, I also enjoy my beach reads. You know, light and fluffy books that don’t require a lot of attention. As you can see from my Summer reading recap, the majority of my books all have a beach theme. This June is definitely an example of my “beach-themed books”.
Generally when we go to Wildwood, I have read a TON of books. Generally a full one before we even get there. After all, this is the perfect setting:
This year was kind of the exception to the this rule. Why you ask? Well we spent time at a water park. Usually I am napping in the afternoon, but the we decided to try something new. It was an absolute blast!
And on another day, we skipped nap time and went miniature golfing at a new attraction. That was super fun as well. We love how it was a fun combination of beach, ocean, and Boardwalk!
But I digress! I know that you are probably ready for me to get on with my Summer reading recap. So here is my completed list.
Summer Reading Recap June 2016:
The first book I want to share with you is The Island House by Nancy Thayer.
I have been a big fan of Nancy Thayer since I discovered her several Summers ago. Her books, centered around Nantucket Island, are intense but light. She shares families that are real, and struggle with many of the same problems we do.
Next on the list is The Weekenders by Mary Kay Andrews.
I discovered Mary Kay Andrews a few Summers ago as well. And while her stories are generally good, this one did not live up to my expectations. But it still was a nice beach read.
These two books are part of the Lowcountry Summer series. These were my two “binge reads”. In Jennifer speak that means I read them one after the other and became annoyed when I had to stop because of a stupid thing called sleep. These were, by far, my favorite books so far this Summer. I have books 4 and 5 on my wishlist for later this year.
So there is my Summer reading recap for June 2016. I have already started my reading for July 2016, so be sure to stop back in August to see what I am reading this month.
