summer reading bucket list

I've already finished a couple of these and added some that aren't listed here, but here's my summer reading list!  Hoping to get through ALL of these, as they've been on my list for some time.  One of my favorite things to do is sit outside...in the backyard, by the pool, at the beach, at a park...and read!  It's so refreshing for me.  During the school year I maybe read 4 or 5 books, so I'm trying to take full advantage of my laid-back summer schedule and READ!

Freefall to Fly by Rebekah Lyons has been on my list for awhile.  Here's the description of the book: "Women today are fading. In a female culture built on Photoshopped perfection and Pinterest fantasies, we’ve lost the ability to dream our own big dreams. So busy trying to do it all and have it all, we’ve missed the life we were really designed for. And we are paying the price...."

Delancey: a Man, a Woman, a Restaurant, a Marriage by Molly Wizenburg.  I loved Molly first book, A Homemade Life, so I have high hopes for this new novel she's written.

What better book to read on vacation than The Vacationers, by Emma Straub.  Yep, reading it right now, and so far, I like it.

I feel a little behind since I haven't read Daring Greatly  by Brene Brown yet, but hoping to read it soon!  I've heard amazing things!

Carry On Warrior by Glennon Doyle Melton was just recently recommended to me by a friend.  I really don't know anything about it, other than the description, but sometimes all you need is a good friend's recommendation!

Another recommendation by a friend was The Nesting Place by Myquillyn Smith.  I've actually heard from several people that this is a great read.

And finally, I'd love to read A Million Little Ways by Emily P. Freeman.  I just love the description of this book: A Million Little Ways uncovers the creative, personal imprint of God on every individual. It invites the discouraged parent, the bored Christian, the exhausted executive to look at their lives differently by approaching their critics, their jobs, and the kids around their table the same way an artist approaches the canvas--with wonder, bravery, and hope.

I have so many more to add to this list.  But I'll start here.  And hopefully by the end of the summer, I'll have more to add!  Happy reading to me!
