Monday’s Musings #266 & A Summer Reading List

A Summer Reading List & Monday's Musings #265 | What Joy Is MIne

It’s officially June and summer is almost here. It’s the perfect time to share some books to read. Some are on my reading list and some I am recommending that I have read. Now I am partial to a book in my hand while I get lost in what I am reading. But audio books serve a purpose too. Well, let’s get to it!

Books I am hoping to read this summer…


So, I have five books I hope to get through. We shall see if I do. It’s very ambitious for me. I picked three faith building and two fictional. Since I am finishing up Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie, I thought I would take on Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass. There is something to be said for reading children’s literature as an adult. I am certainly enjoying Peter Pan and am so glad I decided to read it.

The Little Paris Book Shop I saw and skimmed in the book store. It sounded interesting so I am hoping it is a good read.

Here are some books I recommend…


Summer time is the perfect time to take J.R.R. Tolkiens The Hobbit & The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. You will love the set! Bonhoeffer is a long book but a great summer read. I loved reading about Bonhoeffer’s love for the Lord. I am finishing up The Pursuit of God and learned so much from it. I didn’t list it but “The Imitation of Christ” by Tomas a Kempis is another awesome faith building read. I added in Peter Pan, of course, and The Lamplighter, both excellent fictional reads. If you desire, you can click on the book and it will take you to an opportunity to purchase it. Yes, they’re affiliate links.

So, what are you planning to read this summer?

Another Monday is upon us. That means link up time! Thank you for sharing.

    Hi, Naomi. Thanks for hosing this link up.
    I thought I should let you know that your photographs are not working. At least they are not for me and I did try reloading. The joys of web construction. :-)

    What a large list you’ve undertaken for Summer reading m’dear. I think I need to take some time out to read during the day because I usually only read in bed and fall asleep a couple of paragraphs in. Sigh . . . Thank you for sharing your list and for hosting the link up.
