Summertime Reads

I adore parenting books, business books, and Christian books.  But this summer I am in need of some mindless reading.

Summer Reading List featuring Sparkly Green Earrings, Where

Here’s what’s on my summer reading list:

Sparkly Green Earrings by Melanie Shankle

Where’d you go, Bernadette by Maria Semple

The Fault in our Stars by John Green

Which books do you recommend that I read next?


  • Lyndi - I just saw a book on the Katie show that I want to read. The First Phone Call from Heaven by Mitch Albom. I think I may start it soon!

  • colleen - I started fault in our stars a month ago but haven’t gone back to it, not that it’s not good, it is great actually– I just need to get off my behind and charge my Kindle. I’ve see a lot of people reading Where’d You Go, Bern?, so it must be good! And Sparkling Green Earrings was a quick fun read too! Love seeing what other people are reading — thanks for sharing!

  • Mia @ MakeMeUpMia - I’ve heard Sparkly Green Earrings is hilarious. I borrowed The Antelope in the Living Room from my friend, taking it to Mexico with me next week for my beach read :)

  • Angela - I’ve read The Fault in Our Stars and Sparkly Green Earrings. I hope you enjoy them both! Where’d You Go, Bernadette is on my list!

  • Amy W - I read TFIOS…good story-I need to watch the movie now.
    If you like suspense/mystery books, Ted Dekker is my favorite Christian author. I basically have all of his books. I’d be happy to let you borrow any of them.
