Summer Reading List

So with the end of 24 (and now a free weekly Monday night) and the beginning of summer right around the corner, the SUMMER READING LIST has made it's appearance!  You see, I am somewhat of a self-proclaimed nerd.  I particularly enjoy reading...when I have the time...which is why I am so excited about summer and free time! To read! (I feel a disclaimer is necessary here:  I am most definitely NOT a nerd in anything related to math or science, I am far more nerdy on the right side of the brain ;)

I am not your typical reader (or what I think may be a typical reader), I am more of the "read-to-learn-and-I-just-really-like-reading" type girl.  Which means I'll read just about anything.  I'm not so limited to a certain genre.  While I do like reading books that grow me (namely, authors that challenge me to think deeply on my relationship with Christ and what it means to be a Christ-follower), I also like reading classics, romance novels, some history books, books my students at school have read, and well, you get the picture, right?

So with all that said, I'm introducing to you the Summer 2010 Reading List:

Radical by David Platt
Dear John by Nicholas Sparks
Journey to Topaz by Yoshiko Uchida
Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
Anna Karenina by Tolstoy
The Scenic Route by Kirshenbaum
Iberia by James Michener
Till We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis
Enemies of the People by Kati Marton
The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender

And that's it for now!  If you have any other must-reads, let me know so I can add them to my list ;)


  1. I just odered "The Lost Girls" to add to my summer reading list. It's the memoir of 3 20-something girls who left thier jobs, families and boyfriends behind to travel the world for a year. If you want, you are more than welcome to borrow it when I get done! :)

  2. Ooo, Radical is at the top of my list too! You'll have to let me know about the rest, if they are good :)

  3. I just started Radical this far I am loving it. Although Jeremiah and I are attempting to read it at the same time...not the best idea =)

  4. I read Journey to Topaz in 7th grade for Mrs. Russell last year. It was really good, I think you'll enjoy it.



leave us some love!
