Book Wish List: Summer Reading

Since I'm on vacation this week I thought it would be appropriate to gather up some summer reading suggestions.  I just started  The Language of Flowers and am going to start The Paris Wife afterwards.  What's on your summer reading list?
{1} The Paris Wife by Paula McLain {2} The Next Best Thing by Jennifer Weiner {3} The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh {4} State of Wonder by Ann Patchett {5} The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls {6} Salmon Fishing in the Yemen by Paul Torday


  1. I love knowing that I have already read 4 of your picks! I finished "The Blue Zones" and am starting "Major Petigrew's last stand" (spelling?)
    Happy reading....

  2. The Paris Wife is one of my favorite books! I learned so much more about Hemingway and his life. I couldn't put it down!

    Moments of Eternity

  3. The Paris Wife is on my Summer reading list too, along with...
    - Half of a Yellow Sun
    - Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
    - Notes on a Scandal
    I just wish there were more hours in the day for me to read them.
    Hope you're having a lovely vacation so far :) xx

  4. I loooove the Paris Wife! And the Glass Castle- you need to read that one and then the sequel, Half Broke Horses. I have not been good about reading lately, I really need to get back on track. This post was so a good reminder Becca!

  5. These are great suggestions. The Glass Castle is a wonderful book. I'm looking forward to reading the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency.


  6. ohhhhh i am so happy to see your suggestions. i keep hearing about the night circus - not sure if i wanna read tho. have you? i also want to read the paris wife.
