My Kindle reader is jam packed full with goodness to read this summer. Soon, we’ll be taking a vacation to the beach and here is what I’m excited to work my way through: (FYI: post contains Amazon Affiliate Links, see below)

Quitter by Jon Acuff: My husband and I are reading this book together and loving it. I know Jon has another book out already, but we are fine with being one book behind. Most of the books I read are pretty girlified, so it is fun to be reading this one with Mike. Thanks Jon for writing something we both want to read!

Sparkly Green Earrings by Melanie Shankle: I have heard nothing but good about this book. I met Melanie last fall at the LifeWay conference called DotMom. So in blogger land, we go way back.  She is hilarious and a girl mama. Mike is not reading this one with me, you can probably guess why.

Bread and Wine by Shauna Niequest: This book is going to absolutely wreck my efforts to stop eating bread. Plus I don’t even drink wine. However, it is all about love, family, and food. I grew up on these things and I’m excited to indulge my heart in this way. Also, as an added bonus the  (in)courage community is going to be reading it, too. It sounds like a party. I’m so there!

Unglued by Lysa TerKeurst: This is the book my family will thank me for reading. Oh sure, they love bread, but they will love a cool tempered mama even more. I’ve known for a while that I needed to make a date with this book and read it with heaps of coffee and maybe a cupcake. I’m done avoiding it. Project kinder, gentler, mommy has begun.

So, what are you reading this summer? I’d love to hear.
