July Reading List

I'm going in a little bit of a different direction with my July reading list, and keeping it light.  Nothing to deep.  Just good, entertaining summer reading.

Silas Marner by George Eliot is my classic pick for the month.  It's the deepest thing on my list, but it's not very thick, so I think it will still keep the light mood I'm going for in July.

A Secret Kept by Tatiana DeRosnay was salvaged out of the Goodwill clearance section.  While I didn't totally love Sarah's Key, I thought the writing good, and it held my interest, so I'm interested to give this one a try. 

Missing You by Harlan Coben is the type of book I normally avoid.  It's stamped #1 New York Times Bestseller twice, the authors name is bigger than the title (which I believe Beth from Printcess pointed out is usually bad sign) and it's a big, thick, mass market paperback, the kind that read fast and are available in grocery stores, but I heard good things about Harlan Coben so I wanted to give it a shot. 

Lake of Dreams by Kim Edwards sounds sappy.  Perfect for summer reading.  It involves a return to home, a family mystery, and a  lost love.  I have a feeling it's going to turn out to be something I'd see on the Hallmark channel, but who knows.

So what are you reading in July?  Drop me a comment and let me know.


  1. I really like Kim Edwards as a writer. I did try Harlan Coben as I love crime but decided he wasn't for me. x

    1. I finished Missing You, and wasn't really super impressed. It kept me reading, but it was pretty far fetched.
