    • I picked up a copy of The Invention of Wings last year, but I still haven’t read it. Hurray for book group pressure! I’m really looking forward to it.

    • That’s so great to hear! I really loved Every Day (even ended up giving it as a gift to a few people), and I’m really looking forward to Another Day. I have the ARC, but I’m trying to be good and pace myself with my review books for the summer… it’s hard!

    • Everyone I know who has read it, loved it! I’ve had the Kindle version for a while, but it always seemed so daunting to actually start. I’m saving it up for a vacation read in early July, and then I’ll be all set for my book group too!

    • Thanks! I’ve only read one book by Sue Monk Kidd, but I thought it was wonderful, and I’ve heard such great things about this one too.

  1. I Love your list, since it has quite a few of the books that i plan to read as well but i didn’t include in my own but for one reason or another didn’t land on my own.

    i can’t wait for “Jesse’s girl” and “Circling the Sun”. I am happy to see those on someone else list. 🙂

    I also have “All the light we can not see” and “The Invention of Wings” on my TBR list, but i am unsure if i can manage them this summer. But i heard so much fantastic things about those two books and i own them so i should finally get around to read them.

    • Nice to hear that we have books in common! To be honest, even though I really want to read All the Light and The Invention of Wings, I’m not sure that I’d get to them any time soon without knowing I have book group commitments! Sometimes peer pressure is a good thing. 🙂 I’m really looking forward to Jesse’s Girl. So far, I’ve read two of Miranda Kenneally’s books, but I’d like to go back and read more. Thanks for commenting!

    • Thanks, Lianne! Happy summer reading to you too! I can’t wait to start watching Poldark this weekend. For once, I may break my “read the book first” rule, since I don’t think I’ll have time for it for a while yet…

  2. I keep meaning to read All The Light We Cannot See. It looks so good! 🙂 I hope you get to read all of these books.

    • Thank you! A couple of my book group friends have finished it already and have been raving about it. I’m so glad to finally have the kick in the pants I need to start it!

    • Thanks so much! I’m really looking forward to reading those two in particular (although I hope to be able to stick to a list for once and read all of these!)
