I always have a list of TBR (to-be-read, for the uninitiated) books in my GoodReads, but this summer I decided to do something different and be a little more intentional about what I choose to read versus going with whatever happened to come in on library hold this week.
Usually I read 4(ish) books per month and this year I'm trying to read one non-fiction per month so that puts me at 12 fiction and 4 non-fiction for May through August.
How do I decide what books to read? 1) Recommendations from other bloggers, 2) the Amazon Editors' "Best Books of the Month" selections 3) Browsing at bookstores, and 4) GoodReads.
Here's what I have on the list right now:
The Atomic Weight of Love by Elizabeth J. Church
The Dollhouse by Fiona Davis
The Best of Adam Sharp by Graeme Simsion
On Turpentine Lane by Elinor Lipman
The Hearts of Men by Nickolas Butler
Celine by Peter Heller
The Shadow Land by Elizabeth Kostova
The Keeper of Lost Things by Ruth Hogan
The Midnight Cool by Lydia Peelle
As Good as Gone by Larry Watson
The Lake of Dead Languages by Carol Goodman
The Year of Living Danishly: My Twelve Months Unearthing the Secrets of the World's Happiest Country by Helen Russell
Gracious: A Practical Primer on Charm, Tact, and Unsinkable Strength by Kelly Williams Brown
Little Princes: One Man's Promise to Bring Home the Lost Children of Nepal by Conor Grennan
The End of Absence: Reclaiming What We've Lost in a World of Constant Connection by Michael Harris
Your turn! Any recommendations? I'm sure I can squeeze in a few more... Are there any books that you're most looking forward to reading this summer?
