During the summertime I’m always inspired to read more. Maybe it’s the memories of summer reading challenges at my local library as a kid or memories of long happy days reading in the back yard, in any case, come summer I’m all about the books.
Today I thought I would share some books that I’m reading this summer. Some are old favorites that I’ve read before, and some are brand new to me.
– Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
I’ve meant to read this book since high school. It’s such a classic, and I’m excited to finally read it. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte is one of my all time favorites, and I’m interested to compare her sister’s writing to hers. This little edition of the book is special because my best friend brought it to me after studying in England for a semester!
– Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
Little Women is a book that I have such great memories of. I love the stories of the four sisters. Being one of five sisters, (plus two brothers!) I find I can relate to the characters a lot. I’ve read it a couple of times, but I’m ready to read it again. Honestly, this Rifle Paper Co. edition of the book might have something to do with that. 😉
– Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
I’ve read Sense and Sensibility once before, but it’s been a long time. Jane Austin’s novels are the kind that I have a hard time putting down, and this is one of my favorites.
– Z by Therese Anne Fowler
If you’ve followed me for a long time, you probably remember me mentioning something about the 1920s and F. Scott Fitzgerald at some point. This novel is about the life of his wife Zelda, and I’m interested to see how the author describes her and her relationship with her famous husband.
– Death Comes to Pemberly by P. D. James
I first noticed this book after seeing the mini series of the same name on Netflix. It’s a mystery story set after the close of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. I’ve read a couple of sequels to the original novel, and always enjoy seeing how authors follow up the story.
If you love reading, be sure to add me on Goodreads to keep up with what I’m working on!
Do you like to read in the summer? Do you have any good book recommendations? I’d love to hear!
