I have been searching for a few new books to read and thought you might be too.  I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorite books I’ve read.  I hope you’ll leave me a comment with a new read for me to check out.

I love any book by Adriana TrigianiThe Big Stone Gap series & any of her other books are all wonderful!  Engaging, romantic.  Love it!

One of my all time favorite books is The Red Tent.  This book written by Anita Diamant is a fictional book based on biblical women.  Yet it is full of history, love & relationships.  A must read!

My niece & I were discussing our love for the book The Secret Life Of Bees.  This story about a young girl is entertaining as well as inspiring.  I loved almost any book I read by the author Sue Monk Kidd.

Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver is truly one of my favorites.  I refer to it over & over and & am always encouraged to live better.  The recipes in it are fabulous.

Speaking of recipes….who doesn’t love The Pioneer Woman?  Her book Black Heels to Tractor Wheels about her meeting her cowboy is a fun & quick read.

Most recently of course I’ve read The Hunger Games Trilogy which I surprisingly enjoyed.  Normally such violence & science fiction isn’t my thing.  The Help by Kathryn Stockett was another fabulous book that I read in a matter of hours.

Yes I adored the series Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella.  And yes it made me feel like a better person for my Target runs that were miniscule compared to her shopping sprees.

Of course I loved all of Frances Mayes European adventures in her books Under The Tuscan Sun & Bella Tuscany.  I felt as though I were right there with her eating from local markets amongst the olive trees.  Sigh.

Right now my Kindle is full of these books that I plan to read next:

Secrets of Paris by Luanne Rice

The Cookbook Collector by Allegra Goodman

The Shoemaker’s Wife by Adriana Trigiani

The Wild by Cheryl Strayed

What’s on your summer reading list?
