My Mostly Thrilling Summer Reading List

By marinka |

I love to read. I’m in a book group that meets monthly and I read tons on my own. Summer is the time when I read the most, because we tend to go away on the weekends to places that do not have internet access and I can only spend so much time staring at the wall and rubbing two sticks together hoping to get a WiFi spark, you know.

And I love to read thrillers. Almost by definition, thrillers are page-turners (or screen tappers on an E-reader), the types of book that if I’m pulled away from my book, I can’t wait to get back to it as soon as possible.

My kids sense my excitement about what I’m reading and they want to be included. We talk about the books, the funny bits of dialogue, the mysteries, the process of being caught up in a book that you don’t want to end.

Summers are made for lounging and reading.

Afterwards by Rosamund Lupton

Lupton wrote a book that I loved last year-- Sister-- so I'm really looking forward to reading Afterwards. It begins with a mom rushing into a school that's on fire to get to her children.
