when summer reading started to pop up all over my twitter stream, i decided to join the dreamland summer reading program for adults and to make a conscious effort this summer to hold a book in my hands and turn actually pages, just because summer always involved a lot of reading for me (especially as a young girl) and because i think i feel more inspired and motivated to work on my personal writing and writing assignments if i get filled up with words and sentences...
these are the books i have ordered, based mainly on my amazon recommendations and wishlist:
Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet
i think i saw this book on several yarn along posts and also recommended on simple mom at some point, so into my basket it went. i think my mum might enjoy this one a lot too.
Call the Midwife: A True Story of the East End in the 1950s
the film version of this popped up in my recommendations list all the time, so i decided to give the book a go first.
Room: A Novel
another one that comes from my recommendations list on amazon. has any of you read this one?
Everyday Blessings: The Inner Work of Mindful Parenting
i have had this book at my bedside for several months now, but have only now started to read in it regularly. it's another one i'd like to finish by the end of summer.
a fifth book that i want to read is a german cookbook about seasonal cooking. i have some very good english/american cookbooks about organic and whole food cooking that i regularly consult. but i chose a german one this time because the fruits and vegetables that the book covers will be 100% local, so it's more workable for us.
what are your summer reading plans??? any recommendations? please share!
