Here are the books that are on my list...they are from all genres so it is a pretty random list!
I'll See You Again is a memoir written by a mother who lost her three daughters in a tragic accident. It details her journey through grief and how she found her way back to hope and love. I have a personal and professional interest in the area of grief, and find stories like these to be both educational and inspirational.
How Lucky Are You is a story about three friends and how they struggle to keep their friendship alive through loyalty and betrayal...this is definitely some "chick-lit" but looks to be in the same genre as the Emily Griffin books, which I LOVED!
The Weekend Makeover looks interesting as I am horrible about scheduling "me" time, and I often feel just as overwhelmed at the end of the weekend as I did on Friday.
That's My Son is a book that I definitely need to read...the subtitle speaks for itself "How Mom's Can Influence Boys To Become Men Of Character" and they have sequel called That's My Teenage Son (which I will be reading next year when my twins boys turn 13)
The Gift Of An Ordinary Day is a mother's memoir about a family during times of transitions...changes in jobs, children growing up, etc. and finding time to enjoy the moment. Another thing I need to work on...enjoying the moment.
One Thousand Gifts is a book that my friend, S, recommended and it is about finding the blessings in our every day life. It is a spiritual book, and there is also a Devotional and a Study Guide that you can purchase to go with this book. I have been buying most of my books on my Nook, however I think this is a book I want a hard copy of.
What is on your summer reading list? I am always looking for new books!
