Modern Mrs Darcy’s Summer Reading Guide released last week. I don’t know about you, but I LOVE her Guide. I even have a shelf in my Goodreads account dedicated to the books I’ve read from the MMD Summer Reading Guide. I found her blog, Modern Mrs Darcy, when she was still in her first year, so I love seeing the phenomenal success she’s had as a book blogger. She’s sort of America’s book blogger in the way that Nancy Pearl is America’s librarian. She’s almost a cultural icon now.

While I was going through the Guide, I thought about doing a few summer reading posts. I’ve already signed up for 20 Books of Summer (click to read about it) hosted by blogger 746 Books, and my introductory post is up with some of my possible book choices (click to go to my post).
So, why not join MMD in looking back at the last decade of summer reading by sharing my favorite book read from each summer of the last decade? Here goes….
I Think I Love You: A Novel by Allison Pearson
Greyhound: A Novel by Steffan Piper
Portrait of a Marriage: A Novel by Pearl S. Buck
The Marrying of Chani Kaufman by Eve Harris
Our Souls at Night by Kent Haruf
The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
A Virtuous Woman by Kaye Gibbons
Daisy Jones & the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Toughest year! Red, White & Royal Blue, Book Woman of Troublesome Creek, The Stationery Shop AND Daisy Jones and the Six--all in one summer. It was so hard to chose just one.
Jane and Prudence: A Novel by Barbara Pym
The Narrowboat Summer aka Three Women and a Boat by Anne Youngson
