My 2019 Summer Reading List

I Miss You When I Blink: Essays
By Mary Laura Philpott

Ah the lazy day of summer. I usually love browsing library shelves, grabbing whatever looks good for that upcoming road trip, or treating myself to that next beach read. I have never had a summer reading list (at least, not since high school!) but with three kids 9 and under, I’ve learned that not even unscheduled days translate into guaranteed reading time. But summer and reading still go hand and hand for me and so in an effort to not get distracted (I’m looking at you #bookstagram) and to be able to focus on the titles I’ve been wanting to read for ages, while also realizing that I’m at the mercy of the library hold system, I created my own personal summer reading list. See any favorites or ones that are on your list as well? Comment below with what you hope to read this summer!
