Nine Reads for the Nine Weeks of School Vacation


Today is the first day of my summer vacation.  Finally!  Love my teaching job, but love my nine weeks of summer even more!  Nine glorious weeks to re-energize, relax and reorganize my life.  My favorite summer thing to do is read books from all the must-read lists I find on Pinterest.  I try and pick light, silly books, with an occasional serious one thrown in to keep it real.

Drum roll, please!  Here are my top 9 reads for 9 weeks of summer vacation.  Oh and I linked them to GoodReads so you can add them to your summer reading list.  You’re welcome!  Feel free to return the favor by adding your favorite summer reads in the comments section.

  1. Me Before You by Jo Jo Moyes – this is one of those books I stopped life for.  I mean, who needs sleep or food when you’re into a book this good.

7. The Boston Girl by Anita Diamant – another one I had a hard time putting down.  A great story about a girl growing up in Boston at the early part of the 20th century.
