Summer Reading Series - Week 4: My Grown Up Summer Reading List

Welcome to the fourth and final week of my summer reading series! 

I thought I would make myself a grown up summer reading list. We leave for Las Vegas in 9 days (can’t wait!) and I need some reading materials for all the travelling! I came up with a list of books I’m going to read for the trip and hopefully over the rest of the summer! Not professional books.. Not kids books.. But actual fun grown up books. It’s a shame I don’t read those as much anymore, but summer is the perfect time to catch up!

Michaela's Grown Up Summer Reading List:

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
A New York Times Bestseller about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II. 

The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty
Cecilia Fitzpatrick finds a letter from her husband to be opened in the event of his death, but he is not dead. What happens next changes her existence forever. 

Necessary Lies by Diane Chamberlain
The little-known history of North Carolina's Eugenics Sterilization Program, in effect from 1929 to 1975. While working with 15 year old Ivy and her family, Jane Forrester, a social worker, encounters the state program that seeks to sterilize "mental defectives". 

The One and Only by Emily Giffin
33 year old Shea Rigsby has spent her entire life in Walker, Texas. When an unexpected tragedy strikes the tight-knit community, Shea's world is turned upside down. She discovers unsettling truths about the people and things she's always trusted most and is forced to confront her deepest desires, fears, and secrets. 

Pretty Baby by Mary Kubica
This psychological thriller will be released on July 28, 2015. Heidi Wood sees a teenage girl standing on a train platform clutching an infant in her arms. She invited the girl and her baby to take refuge in her family home. Clues into the girl's past begin to surface and an act of kindness quickly spirals into a story far more twisted than anyone could've anticipated. 


I’m always looking for new books to read. What’s on your grown up summer reading list?

  1. Hi there! I am coming over from the #littlefishteacherbloggers post over at Hanging Around in Primary.
    I love your list of books you plan to read - have you read any of them? I have so many books on my 'to read' list. I really want to read that last book you wrote about - so I'll be adding that to my already long list ;P

    I have also heard good things about Girl on a Train.

  2. Hi Michaela! I found you on the #littlefishteacherblogger linky and am looking forward to following your blog. Two of my favorite summer reads so far have been The Storied Life of AJ Fikry and The Kite Runner (finally!). Those were my grown-up books, but I also really loved Counting By 7s.

    Dawn at Revenge of the Thirds
