My Summer List had 25 titles on and I read less than half. In an effort to set myself up for better success this time around, I’ve limited this season’s list to 18. 15 fiction, 3 non. Sure, 18’s kind of a weird number for this sort of list but they’re 18 books I’m excited to read.

  1. I’ve had a copy of Animal, Vegetable, Miracle sitting on my bookshelf for YEARS. Your list reminded me that I actually need to read it! There are some great books on your TBR list–looking forward to hearing your thoughts on them. 🙂

    • I’ve had that same book on my shelf forever too! I figure it’s far past time to read it and fall seems like a good season. With all the award shortlists coming out there are so many good books I want to read right now – it was hard to limit myself!
