Here’s What We’re Reading! Summer 2016


My family just got back from a vacation to Arizona to see the Grand Canyon and other attractions!!  It was a nice balance of hiking, shopping, sight seeing and relaxing!  The particular home we rented had an amazing view and a beautiful pool and patio- the perfect set up to relax and read a book!!


As with most vacations, everyone packed a book to read.  Here are some of the books that we are reading this Summer!



  • Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: Book 1: The Sword of Summer  by Rick Riordan  (Mythology)
  • Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis  (Religion)
  • The Crown by Kiera Cass (The 5th book in the “Selection” Series)
  • Start Something That Matters by Blake Mycoskie (Founder of Tom’s Shoes)
  • Own Your Life by Sally Clarkson (Living with deep intention, bold faith and generous love)

Leave a comment and let me know what book you’re reading!!

Happy Summer!

Linking up with GrammieTime & The Diary of a Real Housewife!



  1. I really like Mere Christianity! Such depth and wisdom in C.S. Lewis’ writing!!

  2. Karrie Berg says:

    Wild by Cheryl Strayed…love it so far! Brings me back to my week of backpacking in Wyoming!

  3. The background of the canyon, the pool the whole setting sounds like a wonderful vacation spot. You have a few fine books here you are sharing. I agree, nothing better than sitting somewhere picturesque with a good read. Sharing a couple of mine on Thankful Friday today too. Thanks for sharing.

  4. We’re dying to read Magnus Chase but my boys wanted to re-read the Heroes of Olympus series first.

  5. Shouting you out on Thursday for MOST VIEWED post on Book Wino at Party at My Place. Happy to let you know!
