Summer Reading for Moms

By Danielle |

What is on your summer reading list?

Since my kiddos are in school this year, we have taken on the summer reading challenge in our house. It is something I remember bitching about as a kid because I would rather be swimming all day long in the summer, not sitting down with a book that I would have to record on a sheet and report back to school with in September.

But with the new summer reading love in our house, it has brought my own inner book worm out and I am on a mission alongside my own children this summer to get my reading on!

I never took the time to see how many awesome books there are you can read!

Having an e-reader also doesn’t hurt!

I put together this list which is a great mix of books I love that I have already read, books on my to-read list, and of course suggestions from the readers.

If you have any books you would like to include on this list be sure to comment below!

Moms! Get Your Read On!

'My Two Moms: Lessons of Love, Strength, and What Makes a Family'

Remember a couple months back a video went viral of a young man speaking about his luck in having two mothers? He wrote an amazing book about same sex marriage and what really makes a family. Highly recommended by several of the readers on my fan page. I have added it onto my own reading list for the summer!

    Please give up the farce already! You eat out most of the time and hate to cook by your own admission! You don’t seem too concerned about healthy foods given the extremely unhealthy menu you came up with and shared that had absolutely no veggies for your kids to eat and was fried crap!
    As for the reading list lol you said not too long ago how you hate to read! So I’m really not buying this reading list you’ve come up with.

      @AFancy – Of course, I have never really cared for reading. But a good book can certainly change that! Lots changes over time :)

    Oh A Fancy Farce you are so right. However, you can tell the books on here that she will actually read. None of the ones that someone else recommended, but I’m sure she’ll read those blogger books because she thinks she can write books like them and she’ll read that Kardashians book. Really, mine as well read the tabloids with her true top picks.

    @Danielle, what? No response to the eating out and your own admission of hating to cook? The fried crap and junk you feed your kids and no mention of veggies or fruits in that so called menu planning you made up whatsoever. It’s no wonder your boys had to have major dental work at such a young age. You can certainly say you’ve changed LOL but really most everyone knows you haven’t. You just like to put on this front for some reason, hoping to make yourself appear better than what you really are I’m guessing.

    @ Monica- you certainly are right. Seems you have her pegged pretty well too.

    Until you face your past head on Danielle it will continue to haunt you. Unfortunately your eating habits and what you feed your children is not in your past. Of course it’s your prerogative to feed your children what you like, but don’t go telling people you feed your children fruits and veggies and are concerned with childhood obesity when your own actions and even your weekly menu (which is more like semi annual menu) does not support any of what you say. For your children’s sake I do hope that Obama’s book is one of the first you read cover to cover and then do it again and actually start implementing what she says into your day to day routine, but your past and really your present has shown that you are incapable of that kind of change even for the betterment of your children. Pictures of sugary drinks right after the diagnosis of dental problems with your children comes to mind.

    Wow guys – why such mean comments?

    I’m reading “Science Ink” by Carl Zimmer, and also Blessing Way by Tony Hillerman at the moment. I’ll have to add your suggestions to my ever-growing list.
