Top 5 Wednesday: Summer Reads



Here are the new books I’m looking forward to reading this summer:


#1 The Obvious One–How Hard Can it Be? By Allison Pearson

(It’s been in so many of my posts.)

How Hard Can it Be? is the belated sequel to I Don’t Know How She Does It. Can’t wait to read it!


#2 Us Against You: A  Novel by Frederik Backman

Sequel to Beartown


Beartown was an outstanding novel–I am almost afraid to read the second book, but I’ll have it shortly and do intended to stick it out regardless of the story.


#3 The Summer Wives: A Novel by Beatriz Williams


This just sounds like a good summer read.  I don’t think I’ve read anything by th is author before though. Summer Wives: A Novel.


#4 Late Bloomers’ Club: A Novel by Louise Miller



I enjoyed her previous book, City Baker’s Guide to Country Living. The Late Bloomers’ Club: A Novel.


#5 The Non-Fiction One: Ninety-Nine Glimpses of Princess Margaret by Craig Brown


The Queen’s late younger sister, Princess Margaret, had one of the most wasted or colorful [take your pick] lives of any royal born in the modern era. I can’t wait for this one. Ninety-Nine Glimpses of Princess Margaret by Craig Brown

    I will look forward to hearing if you think the Backman one is good. The Princess Margaret one intrigues me. Interesting title! The girls and I helped sort for the huge church garage sale today — most of our time in books, ahhhh! I do not need more, but so many looked good to read.
