My Summer Reading Plan

Rate this Entry
August for me is always when I start what I call my summer reading. It began with the fact that my family would always go on summer vacation in August and I would always choose specific books to read for the vacation. So regardless of what my August plans on, every August I select my summer reading list. Books that evoke either a sort of vacation-like feel, or books that just seem to embody summer.

This year I had certain categories for the summer adventure I wanted to have. First because I love the water I wanted a book that featured the swimming, or lounging on the beach or around the pool.
Second I decided I was in the mood for something island like or tropical
Third because I noticed I have quite a few books featuring bees, and I associate summer with seeing bees I decided I wanted a bee theme.
And lastly I wanted a book that was a vacation for the mind, something that could be easily read if I was sitting in an airport waiting for my flight, or hanging out at the beach. Something light and fun, that does not have to be taken seriously.

So here is the list I came up with:

1. Beautiful Animals
2. Island Queen
3. The Death of Bees
4. The Jetsetters
