beach reading.

summer reading 2013.

After Allyssa posted her Summer Reading List, I knew I had to create one of my own. Above are my picks for throwing into your beach bag, picnic basket, or to arrange on your coffee table. Oh, &, you know, to read. 

one: J.K. Rowling, I love you. Still missing reading this book. It was that good.
two: Loved it, but not as much as The Kite Runner. An emotionally draining, poignant read.
three: Of course I'll have to round out the trio of Hosseini novels. I love his writing style. 
four: I read this book in a weekend. I still can't stop thinking about it. Loved its witty quirks. 
five: Looking forward to finally devouring this modern classic.
six: This will be my first Sedaris sampling. Pretty excited about it. 
seven: Just want to finish this. Been reading it for what feels like forever.

And from the blogosphere...

- Joelle has always inspired me with her bow-festooned up-dos, so of course I am loving her Sunday Bun Day posts. I mean, seriously, how cute? I've always been a fan of buns, but I really need to invest in a little bow collection.

- I loved this post from The Londoner on The Anti Diet. I'm always looking for fitness inspiration, & this one is a gold mine.

- One of my favorites photo blogs - Afternoons & Coffeespoons - recently posted a collection of photos from Charleston. Since Justin & I are headed there for our One Year Anniversary in October, I got excited as I pored over the images. I've only been to Charleston once so far, but my love affair with it already runs deep.

Oh boy! I could really use a good book. Where'd You Go, Bernadette sounds interesting. Thanks for sharing your reading list. Maybe I'll think about that Khaled Hosseini book I haven't read too... :)

I'll have the read the new J.K. Rowling. I've heard mixed reviews on it, more negative than positive. You've convinced me though! Love the new blog design, by the way.

Oh, yay! Thanks for the great list! Been looking for a book since I finished that Dan Brown in 3.5 seconds... :)

Never read sedaris, either. Curious... why'd you pick this one to start with?

I've been wanting to read J.K. Rowling's new book! Might just have to add it to my summer reading list :)
