I love lists like New Year's Resolutions, party menus, and, of course, summer reading lists! Summer reading lists feel a bit like New Year's Resolutions to me. They're both a blank slate, a fresh start, and loads of possibilities! I set some lofty goals for myself in each and though I don't like to admit it, I don't always fulfill either list but, hey, the way I look at it, there's always next year/summer!
I've tried to balance the list with some Young Adult, middle readers, literary fiction, and non fiction (did I mention I set lofty goals?). So in no particular order, here's my 2012 summer reading list!
The Meaning of Marriage by Timothy Keller
Middlemarch by George Elliot
Why We Broke Up by
In the Garden of Beasts by Erik Larson
Divergent by Veronica Roth
