Summer Reading

So I wanted to give a little book count update. I've really been keeping up with my goal of reading 2 books a month and I'm hoping this number will continue to grow as the summer months happen upon us and I spend more time lounging in the pool and on the beach. 

My 2014 List of Books I've Read (So Far):
  1. Orange is the New Black - Piper Kerman
  2. After Dead - Charlaine Harris
  3. Never Have I Ever: My Life (So Far) Without A Date - Katie Heaney
  4. Everything Is Perfect When You're A Liar- Kelly Oxford
  5. Gone Girl - Gillian Flynn
  6. Uganda Be Kidding Me- Chelsea Handler
  7. Divergent - Veronica Roth
  8. Insurgent - Veronica Roth
  9. Allegiant - Veronica Roth
  10. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children - Ransom Riggs
Next up on my list is Gillian Flynn's Dark Places, I really enjoyed her other book, Gone Girl, and once I find an author I like, I tend to want to read all of their books. Has anyone read Dark Places? 

Also I was curious on how you guys go about getting books: do you get them from the library, buy them or get them on your Kindle/Nook? I tend to like to buy books (which can be expensive) and I've decided that I am going to sign up for the Barnes and Noble Membership where I can get free shipping on any book I order and an additional discount. I'm curious to hear about your book buying strategies because I'm always looking for a way to save some extra cash. 

What is on your summer reading list?


  1. Whenever I have to buy books, I try to find them at Half-Price books because you can get great discounts! This summer I really want to read the next book in the Devil Wears Prada series!

    Prep on a Budget

  2. I'm in a summer reading kick too and have been all about. Reading in my kindle. Still more expensive than the library, but I really love owning my books and being able to re-read them. I've read some of the books on your list, but am going to have to check out some of the others!!

    Baby Got B.A.

  3. So impressive!! I can't believe you've read all of those already - definitely an inspiration to read more on my end.

    I have a Nook, but I find that a lot of times the Nook price is just as much as a physical book - so I'm always torn! When I read books for the book club K & I joined, I like to have a physical copy so I can easily flip through at club meetings. Can't wait to see how you like "Dark Places"!

    P.S. I'm the same way with reading everything by an author I like! I think I've read every one of Dan Brown's (author of The DaVinci Code) books.

  4. Thanks for sharing these, I need to pick up some new books to read!


  5. I'm currently reading Dark Places too and... it's definitely dark. Excited to hear you thoughts on it soon.


  6. I really want to check out Flynns other books also. And I am buying mine on my kindle because the Library in my town is just to far away from where I live and it is always closed when I want to go and get books. But I guess I really need to start doing that or I will be broke.

    Love Always,


I appreciate you taking the time to check out my posts! I read every single comment! xo
