The 29 Books in Reading for Sanity's Summer Reading Stack

It's that time of year -- summer break -- when the kids are home 24/7 and the yardwork never ends...also known as most of the last year and half.   This summer we are crossing our fingers for in-person school in the fall and taking a much needed break to spend (even more) time with our families and read our hearts out. 

We'll see you back here on September 1st OR you can follow along with our more informal reading adventures on our Facebook page.   We won't leave you empty handed though.  Without further ado, here are at least some of the titles we hope to read this summer: 

(in no particular order and linked to Goodreads)  

The Shadow and Bone Trilogy - Leigh Bardugo

The God of Small Things - Arundhati Roy

The Kitchen Front - Jennifer Ryan

Matrimony, Inc: From Personal Ads to Swiping Right, A Story of America Looking for Love - Francesca Beauman

Circe, The Nickel Boys, and The Stationary Shop are all amazing. I couldn't bring myself to read Go Set a Watchman.

RE; My Book Journey --
So far this summer I have read the Shadow and Bones trilogy, The Six of Crows Duology, The Language of Thorns, The Lives of Saints, and I am working on the King of Scars duology (about to start Rule of WOlves). So, yeah, you could say I'm enjoying them!
