Books I Read This Summer
After a long day at the office, I like to sit with a glass of wine and read. Of course, I listen to some news first to stay up to speed on what is happening in the world. Albeit, the news isn’t very encouraging these days, but that’s another conversation. I find it an excellent way to slow down, ease into the evening, and prepare for a good night’s sleep. Most weekends, I am busy until mid-afternoon, taking care of my garden and ensuring things are in good order at my barn and around the house. And then, I read. I take the afternoon, settle in with a good book, and enjoy the fruits of my labor.
Here is a list of the books I have read this summer. I have provided links to Amazon so you can look and see if you would like to read them too.
- The Housemaid by Freida McFadden
- The Golden Couple by Greer Hendricks, Sarah Pekkanen
- Seasons Out of Time by Kimberly Wenzler
- Local Woman Missing by Mary Kubica
- The Brilliant Life of Eudora Honeysett by Annie Lyons
- Mad Honey by Jodi Picoult, Jennifer Finney Boylan
- From Strength to Strength by Arthur C. Brooks
- The Kindred Project: a collaborative collection of poetry and prose by J. Raymond
- Witness to a Prosecution: The Myth of Michael Milken by Richard Sandler
- Twenty Years Later by Charlie Donlea
Each book held unexpected twists and turns that kept me engaged and not wanting to put the book down. A few carried a tender message, while one gave specific tips on finding success, happiness, and profound purpose in life. I trust that if you choose to read any of these books, you will enjoy them as much as I did. And, if you have any suggested reads for me, please let me know because I love to read!
