Summer reading lists are everywhere this week. Yet for me, making one seems like an exercise in futility. I just can't seem to stick to them. Still, I compose a new version each season and post it here for all to see. So here is my Summer 2016 Reading List... just eight books for now. Hopefully I'll end up reading at least three. We'll see come Labor Day.
Nobody's Fool by Richard Russo
For book club, and then I'll read the new sequel, Everybody's Fool.
Last Orders by Graham Swift
...because I adored Mothering Sunday.
Sweetbitter by Stephanie Danler
This seems to be THE book right now, and it sounds so appealing.
Delta Wedding by Eudora Welty
It's been too long since I last read Welty, and summer seems like the perfect time.
Cranford by Elizabeth Gaskell
From my Classics Club list. Thomas mentioned that Prunella Scales is one of his favorite narrators, so I'm going the audio route.
Jezebel's Daughter by Wilkie Collins
I've had this review copy since December...
The Wander Society by Keri Smith
Unplanned exploring as a way of life? Sounds hard to resist.
Waiter Rant by Steve Dublanica
Summer is the best time for light nonfiction and this sounds like fun.
Are you a list maker? Can you stick to a reading list?
