My Summer Reading List for 2017 Plus Books I'm Sharing with My Daughters

Summer is the perfect time for me to sit down with a few good books.  By the time summer rolls around, there's often plenty of new releases that I have yet to have the chance to read.  I am so excited about the books I am reading this summer.  I am also so excited to share with you my summer reading list plus a few books my daughters and I will be listening to or I will be reading aloud to them.  So without further adieu ...

Summer Reading List 2017

Piecing Me Together by Renee Watson              


Lucky Broken Girl Ruth Behar


The Boy in the Black Suit by Jason Reynolds


I'm Judging You by Luvvie Ajayi


I've already started by summer reading, and I finished Piecing Me Together earlier this week. It is an amazing book, and I am looking forward to have a book discussion with my friend.  I have started Do Not Say We Have Nothing which has started off promising. Reading is definitely something I enjoy doing, and I am so glad that are many great books for me to enjoy this summer.

I hope that I will be able to finish all the books on my summer reading list!

Because of Mr. Terupt by Rob Buyea

My daughters and I listen to many books together.  I often have an audiobook or two ready for us when we go to and from places. We also listen to stories during lunchtime, and I still read aloud to them.  I am looking forward to sharing these books and maybe more this summer with my girls.
