Summer Reading

I work a lot at my desk making jewelry, mostly when my little ones are sleeping. Normally I like to use that time to catch up on shows I haven't seen, mostly because it's hard for me to work and not listen to something. I've tried nothing, but it's eerie and for me, a little unnerving. Music doesn't work either because I am musically inclined so I'll want to stop and sing, dance or something like that. So it's normally been movies and shows, just easy to watch stuff. But I'm sick of it all for the most part. I've seen it all and what I haven't, I don't want to because it's way too trashy or gruesome.

So I've decided to start listening to books. My husband's been doing it for years, but I've only really done it on long road trips. So far I really like it and since I was always an avid reader as a child so a part of me is trilled to be a participant of the 'reading' community again. While I would try to read a little every day but really I can only get through a couple pages at a time right before I go to bed.

I have a book I'm currently listening to 'The Help' which has been amazing so far and I got to think, "what next?!?!?" so decided to ask my friends, because I'd much rather read something on a friends recommendation than just randomly pick it from a list.

I've pinned all the suggestions I have so far on Pinterest, in my Reading List category. Check it out and let me know if you have any other recommendations!
