What Are You Reading?


How is your week going so far?

Now that summer is almost over, it is the time when I make my reading list and many other lists for the next season. I have been browsing and looking for ideas of books to read for autumn. So, I thought I would ask you!

What books have you been reading? What are you reading now? What do you plan to read in autumn?

Looking forward to hearing about the books you recommend! Happy Wednesday♥

Love,
Summer

P.S. An autumn decor trend I am liking ☺

  1. Come Monday it will be nothing but textbooks....I just finished Thomas Jefferson and the Tripoli Pirates by Brian Kilmeade. If you like historical/fact based, then I highly recommend that one. smiles

    Have a beautiful day friend. smiles

  2. I love mysteries so I am into my Bryant and May, Maisie Dobbs and now Inspector Gamache series (Christopher Fowler, Jacqueline Winspear and Louise Penny). I read my first Ann Patchett, "Bel Canto," this summer and adored it. If you like big historical novels, I recommend Edward Rutherfurd's "Paris." Other favorites I've read this year are Mitch Albom's "The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto," the wonderful "Little Paris Bookshop" by Nina George and "Gardens of Awe and Folly" by one of my favorite bloggers, Vivian Swift. Have fun!

  3. I am reading the latest Harry Potter book right now. It's a fast read. After that I have three Francine Rivers books that a friend loaned me that I have to get through and get back to her. Don't know after that. I love mysteries and Amish fiction so probably something along that line.

  4. We have been having a lot of rain so when the showers start I pick up Midnight In The Garden of Good and Evil, a favorite book! Pretty vignette.......Happy day.

  5. I'm about to read the new Harry Potter book too. My sister bought it for her son but when I was reading the series to my kids I ended up really liking them too and taking the books back to my reading to read on. The girls hated that. ;)

  6. Hello! Nice to meet you! I have been trying to read some of the old classics that I somehow missed when I was younger: Treasure Island, Vanity Fair, etc. A great book is Leave her to Heaven. And I will read anything by Jane Austen. :) Have a great day and thanks for visiting my blog. :) Kit

  7. Beautiful photo. I'm looking forward to reading the newest Louise Penny mystery that comes out on August 30. Summer is my time to read novels - prep for teaching keeps me reading other stuff during most of the school year. But there's always time to read a few pages of something light and escapist.

  8. Love the picture Summer! Beautiful. The latest book I read while at the beach was called Deception on Sable Hill. It is a Christian fiction. It was really good. I love to read but I don't seem to have the time needed to read as much as I'd like. Partly due to the fact that I teach ladies bible study on Wednesday nights so spend a lot of time reading and preparing to lead the ladies. But when I get the chance to do some extra reading I do because I love it. Two of my three daughters also loves to read. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  9. Love the photo, reminds me of a holiday to Italy for some reason. I love to read but like yourself tend to read more over the cooler months so just started my list too. I like true stories, although can be quite sad and hard to read at times.

  10. Hi Summer. Your photo is really lovely and I want to thank you for your visit. In case you couldn't tell, I am a romantic and love all the light chick love stories. I am in the middle of Sweet Tomorrows, by Debbie Macomber. Set in Cabot Cove at a bed and breakfast. I choose my books by what the cover looks like. Anything with a cottage on it is first choice!!..Happy Week to you..Judy

  11. Hi Summer, thanks for visiting my blog. I am reading a fun little mystery by M.C. Beaton because it is set in the Costwolds, where we just visited, so it is kind of like visiting again. -Jenn

  12. Lovely picture. We just recently moved and unfortunately I have not read anything in at least 2 months. Things will slow down soon and the weather will be just right for reading on the porch.

  14. Kind of eclectic here...."Like a Thousand Suns" by Eknath Easwaran ( commentary on the Bhagavad Gita) and over the years I collected used and out of print D.E Stevenson books.. old-fashioned light reading and have been going through a few of those in August here and there, and now and again a bit of "Collected Works of Thomas Troward " :)

  18. Hello sweet Summer! First of all, thank you for coming by my blog and for going over to Vicki's page to read about me. Thank you as well for leaving a comment! IT WAS FUN!!!! Well, I'm back to school to prepare for my students on Monday, but this summer was a fabulous read. Poetry and also Sandra Cisnero's book, "The House on Mango Street." I could have read more, but I was having so much fun being out in the warm weather!

    Enjoy your week and and weekend and thanks again for stopping by!

  19. Oh, Summer, I have a stack of books on my nightstand from last winter! I have three I'm in the middle of. I've never been this way but there are many things I'm juggling now...too many things I have to do and too few things I want to do. And sometimes when I sit down to read I feel my eyes dropping closed! Ha!

    I keep my current read on my sidebar. I may expand it to include what's waiting!!!! ;-D

  20. Are those chocolate croissants on your plate? I am reading The Light Between Oceans by ML Stedman. So far I'm loving it!

  21. Love your feature photo!

    Currently I'm reading Mateguas Island. A ghost story set in Maine written by Linda Watkins. So far, well written but more suspenseful than scary. ;0

  22. It's my first visit to your blog. What a bright, pretty place!

    I just finished reading Janet Evanovich's latest book, "Curious Minds." It is the first book in a whole new series and I enjoyed it. It was funny, smart, and fast-paced.

  23. Right now I haven't gotten into a book, but usually I have something to read before I go to sleep. I am on the library on my tablet so I am at the mercy of what is available on the "available list" and I usually have something on the "to borrow list" Right now I am waiting for book 3 of the "Outlander" series. I got hooked on the TV show and want to know what happens next season, lol.... I love anything historical fiction which turned me on to this series and anything that goes back in time. Hugs, LJ

  24. I just finished reading "The Hiding Place" by Corrie ten Boom, and I pre-ordered "Hidden Figures" by Margot Lee Shetterly to start in September. What sorts of books do you like?

  25. I am reading the book of Galatians in the Good News Bible and I am rereading Rest Stops for Single Mother's. I read it several years ago. It's a light, uplifting read specifically for women who are alone for whatever reason.

  26. We go on holiday on Tuesday and I will be taking Vanished Kingdoms by Norman Davies. The History of Half-Forgotten Europe says the cover. All sorts of countries that have ceased to exist like the Kingdom of Galicia and Lodomeria. Ever heard of that? Me neither. I'm looking forward to it.
    But for something lighter I am working my way through my favourite Ngaio Marsh mysteries featuring Detective Chief Inspector Alleyn. She started writing in 1935 so the earlier ones are real period pieces.
    Thanks for visiting my soap boxes!

  27. I just found your blog from Georgia Girl with an English Heart and am so glad I did. My D.E. Stevenson group is reading Vittoria Cottage, I finished Hillbilly Elegy yesterday and am reading Alice Duncan's latest Daisy Gumm mystery, Bruised Spirits......Your table looks like a wonderful way to begin the day, or stop for tea at about four in the afternoon!

  28. I began to read for the second time the book "To Lord Alfred Douglas " by Oscar Wild ( I read for the first time in 2009 and had loved it).
