Summer Reading List 2016

This year, I am teaching summer school for the first time, redecorating my bedroom, refinishing an antique dresser, creating at least three year long products for my team to use next year, and updating all of my files on TPT that desperately need updating. Among all that craziness, I will be tutoring, trying to move a ton of rock out of my flower beds, and having a social life. I'm also hoping to do some reading - just for me! I usually try and read a little bit over the course of the year, during breaks and when there's nothing good on TV.

Today, I'm linking up with Lucky to Be in First  and nailing down my summer reading list! I was excited to come across this post, because I've been thinking a lot today about what book to pick up first, and after reviewing my "want to read" list, I know which one will be accompanying me out in my lounge chair tomorrow!

So, first up is the list of books you should read- you should see a theme here - I'm a sucker for anything with a crime or with witches ...

1. Anything by Kathy Reichs ... I'm just slightly obsessed with Bones and these are such easy reads!
2. The Witching Savannah Series - Witches and magic galore
3. The All Souls Trilogy: More Witches
4. The Silkworm and The Cuckoo's Calling: Because, who doesn't want to read more JK Rowling?!?! 
5. The Girl on The Train: Gillian Flynn-esq masterpiece 
6. Gillian Flynn. All of them. 

1. Career of Evil: More JK Rowling/Robert Galbraith
2. Pretty Girls: Karin Slaughter
3. #Girlboss: Sophia Amoruso
4. The Good Girl :Mary Kubica
5. Go Set a Watchman: Harper Lee
6. Red Queen: Victoria Aveyard
7. Luckiest Girl Alive: Jessica Knoll 

I'm looking forward to having a busy yet productive summer, and reading lots! 

If you have a summer reading list, link up and share! 


  1. Oh my gosh - we have such a similar style in books! I totally want to read #Girlboss this summer! Thanks for the recommendations!!


  2. Luckiest Girl Alive was a good book! Lots of twists I didn't expect, but a pretty good book! Enjoy it!!
