Summer Reading List {Linky} & A Giveaway!

I knew when I saw this linky hosted by Lucky to Be in First I had to join! Before I became a teacher, I read all the time. Seriously, like 2-3 books in a week. Now I'm lucky if I get a full book in during Spring Break! 

It's a Long Story: Being the Texan and country music fan that I am, this is going to be a great read for me! Even if you're not into country music, Willie Nelson is such an interesting person- you might like it too.

American Sniper: This will be the first one I read. I know I take my freedom for granted every day and I know that I shouldn't. As a teacher, I know how it feels to be under-appreciated but the men and women of our military (and their families) truly do not deserve to feel that way. If reading about his experiences during war are too much for you, you might be interested in his wife's memoir, American Wife. I'll be reading that one as well. 

If I Stay: I saw this movie and it immediately became one of my favorites (I think I watched it 3 times in the week I bought it). Now I need to read the book!

Shopaholic Series: I absolutely LOVE this series! The main character is so funny and reminds me so much of myself. If you like a quick, easy, funny read then this series (and basically any book by Sophie Kinsella) is for you.

Where She Went: When I found out there was a sequel to If I Stay I went ran to Target to buy it. And you guessed right, I read it in 2 days (this was during Spring Break mind you). This one is written from her boyfriend's perspective and it was SO good. Read it! :)

Pride and Prejudice: A classic and my favorite book of all time. The movie (with Kiera Knightly) is also one of my favorite movies, but nothing beats reading Jane Austen's writing. 

I hope you got some good ideas to add to your Summer Reading List! 
And I have a great way for you to buy all these books you want to read!

  2. American Sniper is one of the books I plan to read this summer. We are real big in all things military in my house so I'm looking forward to reading this one. Thanks for the great suggestions! I hope you have a wonderful summer!


  3. I really need to add some non teaching books to my reading list! I think I try the Confessions of a Shopaholic! That looks right up my alley!
