While I love to read, I’m not always good at taking time to do it. I think it’s been months since I curled up with a good book and just got lost in it and I truly miss that! I do have an iPad that I can download books from, but there’s just something about the library (aside from it being free) that gets me excited about reading. Walking through the aisles and holding real books in my hands make the experience so much more than staring at the same screen book after book.
Summer is more than halfway over so I thought I’d share my late summer reading list. The goal every time I go to the library is to not get more books than I can by the three week due date (even though I can extend it twice). Here’s what I’m reading for the last part of this summer.
- Helter Skelter: The True Story of the Manson Murders – the Manson murders were always so intriguing to me. I hope that doesn’t make me creepy, my sister and I are the types of people who will binge watch shows on murderers, not because we’re crazy, but because it’s so interesting and messed up. Also, the Manson caves are just miles from where I grew up so it’s even more interesting to me. Judge away!
- My Name is Memory – “Daniel has spent centuries falling in love with the same girl. Life after life, crossing continents and dynasties, he and Sophia (despite her changing name and form) have been drawn together-and he remembers it all. For all the times that he and Sophia have been connected throughout history, they have also been torn painfully, fatally, apart…“
- How It All Vegan!: Irresistible Recipes for an Animal-Free Diet – Blaine and I aren’t vegan, we’re vegetarian, but I like to do my best to eliminate as many animal products from our diet as possible so I’m trying to find more vegan recipes as they tend to rely less on cheese and dairy products. I’m hoping to find a couple of meals to add to our meal plans for the next few weeks.
- before i go – “Madison Henry has been skating as long as she’s been walking. Coached by her mother, Annie, she is on her way to the Olympics. Jack has been her one friend since she was six years old and now a young adult, Madison is oblivious to his feelings for her. When tragedy strikes, Madison is forced to look at her life differently…and accept one without skating. Only after she opens her heart does she understand the sacrifices Annie made, realize the depth of Jack’s love and know she was blessed in every way. Before I Go spotlights the thrill of women’s ice skating, the unbreakable bond a mother and daughter share and the one true love every person hopes to experience in their lifetime.”
