If we’re being completely honest, as always see books and go“I’ll read that!” but then we never do. Summer Reading Lists are always so full of good intention, but then summer slips away in the blink of an eye and fall comes in full swing. We decided that we’d create a summer reading list, but make sure that the books are so good that you CAN’T NOT READ THEM. So pick one (or four) out, toss it in your beach bag, and get reading!
