What I'm Reading This Summer

Todays topic from The Broke and the Bookish is:

Top Ten Books At The Top Of Your Summer TBR List

The first three on my list are ones I’ll be reading with my book club and the rest are a few that I’m hoping will be nice light summer reading. I probably won't get away anywhere but I am going to give myself a reading vacation and put off the more serious stuff till fall. 

I'm looking forward to these: 

1. While The World Watched by Carolyn Maul - our July book club selection
2. The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery - our August book club selection and one of my all time favourite books
3. Love Anthony by Lisa Genova - our September book club selection
4. Ireland by Frank Delaney - I’ve been waiting for the perfect time to dive into this big book
5. The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachael Joyce - the reviews sound interesting, waiting for it to arrive
6. The Right Attitude To Rain by Alexander McCall Smith - #3 in the Isabelle Dalhousie series, waiting for this one also
7. Gourmet Rhapsody by Muriel Barbery - hoping it will be as good as Hedgehog
8. The Brooklyn Follies by Paul Auster -  the review said “bookish” - Sold!
9. The Whole Fromage by Kathe Lison - a tour of the fromageries of France - the first book I've ever pre-ordered, waiting for it to arrive
10. The Uncommon Reader  by Alan Bennet - just for fun!

Check out The Broke and The Bookish to see what others are reading this summer. What are you looking forward to reading?

Great list! I hope to get around to Barbery's Gourmet Rhapsody one of these days as I loved Elegance of a Hedgehog. I also hope to get around to The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, the premise for that novel sounds fascinating...

I got The Unlikely Pilgrimage for Christmas and haven't had the chance to read it yet- maybe this summer!

I wanted to like The Elegance of the Hedgehog, but the book and I didn't click. I can definitely see why some people gravitate towards it, though.

I really liked The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry. I hope you enjoy your summer reads.
