Summer Reading List

What’s on your reading list?  While I took a break from running, I decided to catch up on some reading.  First book I read this summer was Love with a chance of drowning.  After watching this youtube video about it, I was hooked.

The story of Torre DeRoche, a woman who did not like swimming in the ocean for fear of being eaten by a shark and her new found love who has been planning to sail around the world , will have you laughing out loud as they embark on their journey.  It took me a while to read this one, and not because I did not like it, but because I did not want it to end.

While on our way to San Francisco, I began reading Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter.  If you like intermingled story lines, then you’ll love this one.  The book travels back in time and back and forth between Italy and Hollywood.  Interesting story line, but I’m not sure I loved it.  As  I said before, I find myself reading books faster if I just want to finish them instead of savoring every minute.

Lastly, I picked up Wuthering Heights while shopping for the girls’ school supplies.  I had not read it while in High School, but I remember the book being mentioned in the Gilmore Girls.  Yes, I love the Gilmore Girls.  Did you know there’s a list of books mentioned in the Gilmore Girls series and even a list to read like a Gilmore Girl?  I’m almost done with it and I’m torn.  I don’t want it to end but I so want to know how it ends.  I know the book is set in Yorkshire, England, but I can’t help but imagine the storyline somewhere in the South, like Savannah, Georgia.

    Hey there thanks for sharing! I don’t know that I could swim in the ocean for fear of a shark either- I may have to read that one!

      It’s such a great book. I loved every minute of it. It made me laugh out loud and get funny looks from my husband. I’d have to stop and explain to him what happened every time. It was totally worth it!

  2. Ahhh… Wuthering Heights….brings back memories from high school…

  3. I did not read Wuthering Heights in school, but I should read it. I love to read, I just wish I had more time. I have recently read a couple of Caroline Leavitt’s books which I have enjoyed, “Girls In Trouble” and “Is This Tomorrow”.

    I haven’t read these books! OMG. Why are these not familiar to me?lol. Guess I’ll have to look for these so I can read them too.

    I just bought Louise Hay’s “You Can Heal Your Life” but didn’t really get a chance to read much of it yet. I’m looking forward to checking it out.

    I don’t normally have time to read “real books” since I’m so busy working and reading online, but this will be a welcome change. 🙂
