8 (More) Books to Add to Your Summer Reading List

One more month of summer...one last list of summer reading books. Seriously, nothing makes me happier than having a huge stack of books to read, whether it be samples on my Kindle or a tall pile next to our bed. It takes me back to the summer reading programs at our local library growing up- such great memories of picking our books, filling out the sheets, and feeling so accomplished when we finished five, ten, fifteen books in a week. I'm proud to be a book lover, and I always seem to have an immediate connection with other readers too. I also love sharing great titles with my friends, so please feel free to do the same with me, if you come across a book you just couldn't put down!

Check out my previous 2013 Summer Reading list here, and let me know if you've checked out any of the books below. Happy reading!


one // two // three // four


five // six // seven // eight

  2. I really appreciate you book suggestions! I recently started a blog and, as a book lover myself, I am trying to do a lot of book reviews.
    "I Was Told There'd Be Cake" by Sloan Crosley is hilarious, and "How We Are Hungry" by Dave Eggers is a beautiful collection of short stories. Eggers has an amazing insight into human interaction. Two of my favorite books. I have read them both multiple times.

  3. I posted my summer reading list after being inspired by both of yours! I'm also reading a book from the first summer list. Do you have a good reads account?

  4. I just bought a Kindle yesterday and these are going straight on my wishlist/list!

    I'd recently got back into staggering home from the library weighed down but so looking forward to a more manageable way of satiating the appetite!

  7. we have amazon prime, and i am always on the lookout for new downloads that qualify for my free monthly borrow. i'll have to look into some of these. especially with my oldest son going back to school in a few weeks. i'll have a little bit more time to myself. (maybe.) this post made me a bit link happy, because i am always a sucker for a good book cover and title.

  8. If you're in the mood for some fantastic YA I would highly recommend Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe (it's up there with Eleanor and Park). I also really enjoyed the super buzzed about novel of the summer The Interestings. It was worth the hype.

    Are you on goodreads at all? I'd love to follow a list on there if you kept one. It seems like we have similar taste

  9. Nice! I need some new books to read. I'm reading "Out of Oz" right now, the fourth (and final?) book in the series that started with "Wicked" and it's taking me so long to get through. I usually read books crazy fast. It's good though!

  10. I love hearing other people's book suggestions, so will keep these in mind! I must say, I'm also a Goodreads fan. It is great that way - also to keep track of what I've read and what I thought about it.

  14. I'm always looking for new reads -- Thanks so much, Dani!

    If you haven't read The Age of Miracles, by Karen Thompson Walker, DO. I really think you'll enjoy it.

    Happy Weekend!

  18. how many books do you read a month? All eight. You should read My Stroke of Insight by Jill Bolte Taylor. It is about a woman (brain scientist) who had a stroke at age 37 and fully recovered. She describes having the stroke and everything she learned about which side of your brain does what...and how to focus on the right side to live in the moment.

  19. I'm always so excited to have even MORE books on my to-read list. Most of these are/were on it already, but you've snuck in two I hadn't heard of before. Not sure if you read the Fifth Wave yet, but that was a great summer read. Also, Shoplifting from American Apparel by Lin Tao.
