My Summer Reading List

The summer is here! The summer is here!


Normally, during the wintertime is when I do most of my back-to-back reading. However, since this summer I actually plan to have somewhat of a life and travel, I figure I can get a lot of reading done. Going to the beach and enjoying the outside weather (parks, picnics, family trips), is the best time to bring books along with you. Even though I have more electronic devices than I care to mention right now :), I still enjoy the smell and feel of a good ol’-fashioned perfectly bounded novel. Some of my summer books to read are new, some are old, and some are just worth rereading.


Here are some of the books I plan to read that were recommended or caught my interest:

1.  James McBride: The Color of Water ja






2.  Dr. S.L. Jones: A Movement of Change 







3.  B. Styliz Ortiz: Pretty Boy with the House in Virginia









4. F. Scott Fitzgerald:  The Great Gatsby









5–7. Alice Walker 

– The Color Purple


– Possessing the Secret of Joy



-The Temple of My Familiar







8. John Grisham: The Partner 







9. Sister Souljah: No Disrespect 







10. Sheryl Sandberg: Lean In








What is on your summer reading list? Have you read any of these, if so let me know what’s a miss and what’s a must-read?
