What's On Your Summer Reading List?

It's not June 21st, but it was 90 degrees here in Atlanta on Monday, so it's officially summer. My seventeen year old made a pitcher of home-made lemonade on Sunday and we pulled the grill out of the garage. Call me old fashioned, but now that it's past Memorial Day I also reached back in the closet for my white sandals and went for the first pedicure of the season. As I enjoyed the one luxury I afford myself, I cracked open Vanessa Davis Griggs newest release "Practicing What You Preach". I'm loving the story. Now that I'm almost finished with my second novel (the one I turn into my publisher in September), I'm looking forward to a summer of stress free reading. Here's what's on my list of gotta reads:

Worth A Thousand Words by Stacy Hawkins Adams

The Devil Is A Lie by ReShonda Tate Billingsley

Till Debt Do Us Part by Michelle Larks

What The Bayou Saw by Patti Lacy

Cross Country, and Double Cross by James Patterson

The Last Woman Standing by Tia McCollors

Sins of the Father by Angela Benson

What's on your summer reading list?

Have you read The List by Sherri Lewis or The Bishop's Daughter by Tiffany Warren yet? If not, they're must reads.

Thanks for the shout out, Rhonda!
My summer reading list is pretty much the same as yours. I still have to catch up on reading my books for the Faith and Fiction retreat as well. Unfortunately, I'm working on a manuscript now so don't have as much luxury time as i'd like.

Alright...I'm reading books for the Faith and Fiction retreat featured that includes Angela Benson, Tiffany, and ReShonda.

Like Sherri - my list is like Rhonda's (minus the James Patterson). SMILE!

Rhonda McKnight said...

I've read all the F&F books, so I'm caught up. So glad. Need to review them so I'm fresh on the stories.

Tia - I know you would definitely take James off the list, being a scaredy cat and all. :o)

It's straight F&F reads for me between now and the retreat.

I haven't read The List yet, but I have read The Bishop's Daughter and highly recommend it. I'm currently reading Scandalous Truth by Monica Carter for my offline book club - Divine Women of Faith Book Club.

Other books on my summer reading list: Practicing What You Preach by Vanessa Griggs, Lady Jasmine by Victoria Christopher Murray and
The Devil Is A Lie by ReShonda Tate Billingsley.

NOw that I've seen your list, I will be adding more. I just saw 'Till Debt Do Us Part on Black Expressions so I'll probably go ahead and pre-order it.
