Read, Reading, Will Read...

So many times I think of reading us something that only happens during the summer (it must be the teacher in me).  Something about laying by the pool or beach and opening a good book in the summer.
what about grabbing a pumpkin spice latte and enjoying a book in the fall. 
what about curling up by the fire with a good book in the winter.
what about laying on a blanket outside reading a book in the spring.

Sometimes I have to remind myself that reading is for all seasons.

That being said, here is my read, reading and will read list…

  1. You'll have to let me know about how If I Stay is! I saw the movie with my sister last weekend and loved it, but I am sure the book is even better. That's the way it usually is. :)

    1. I want to see the movie! Glad to hear it was good. The book was good and a quick easy read! I put it in the same category as The Fault in Our Stars…

  2. I read a ton of books but I haven't read a single one of these. Here I thought I was a big reader but my TBR list has become enormous after reading through today's Blogtember linkup lists.

    1. I know! Seriously had inspired me and I already can't find enough time to read everything I want to! Thank you for stopping by :)

  3. How is the Locust affect? It looks very interesting!

    1. I have only read the first two chapters and so far it is very intriguing… and sad. I will let you know in the coming weeks and you are welcome to borrow it after I am done!

  4. I recently read (& reviewed) Good News for Weary Women by Elyse M. Fitzpatrick which was very good. I loved Cold Tangerines & highly recommend anything written by Shauna :)
    I am currently reading 50 Women Every Christian Should Know by Michelle DeRusha & it is wonderful - like being mentored by 50 women. I am also reading 24/6 by Matthew Sleeth, MD on the need for a sabbath rest. Loving it! I so enjoy posts like this one as I discover new reads.

    1. That 50 women Every Christian Should Know sounds fantastic! I need toy check it out. I love hearing about all these different books!

  5. If I stay and Where she went are definitely ones on my To Read list. I've heard great things about them
