Summer Reading

“Summer Reading”… those two words evoke wonderful memories, and always fill me with anticipation for the great reads of the next few months. Our library is still in lockdown for the quarantine, but hopefully it will reopen soon and my summer can include walks to the library every few days. And, of course, I plan to do much of my reading on the porch!

I don’t have a specific plan or list for my summer reading, but there are a couple of books I have in mind that would be perfect summer reading. The first one, which I’ve already started, is The Solitary Summer, by Elizabeth von Arnim. It’s turning out to be a perfectly delightful porch read!

And I ordered a 4 book series called “A Gardening Mystery,” by Mary Freeman. The books were hard to find, but they seemed like the perfect combination of my favorites: mysteries and gardening. I hope they turn out to be a lot of fun!

And there are lots of books on my Classics Club list, and my personal challenges lists. I have so much to read, so it won’t be difficult at all to fill up the summer with pleasurable reading.

    Enjoy your summer reading, Robin. I haven’t heard of that Elizabeth von Arnim so I will look it up as I’ve loved the two or three of her other books I’ve read.

    Sounds like wonderful summer reading plans. I’ve only read The Enchanted April by von Arnim but have been curious about her other books. I have a feeling I would enjoy them too!

      Iliana, I think you’d enjoy quite a few of her other books. I haven’t read them all, but I’ve liked the ones I have read so far!

    I don’t read as much in the summer as I do in the winter months, as I’m usually outdoors much more when the weather is nice. Longer walks, bike rides and gardening push my reading time aside. But, who am I kidding?! I usually read at nighttime. 🙂 Nonetheless, I love to make lists and goals, so I’m putting together a stack of 20 books that I’d like to read this summer. Time to carve an hour or two out of my day to devote to reading!

      Longer walks, bike rides, and gardening all sound lovely, Les! I read during the heat of the day when summer really gets going. And at night, too. Enjoy your summer activities and reading!
