My Summer Reading List (2016)

summer reading list 2016

Here’s what I’m planning to read before Labor Day arrives!

My Summer Reading List:


Mom Enough– from the writers at Desiring God, this is a compilation of 24 essays from young mothers.  I’m excited to read it.  Right now it’s only $2.99 for Kindle.

All Joy and No Fun: The Paradox of Modern Parenthood– I’ve checked this book out a few times, but never taken the time to read it.  The reviews are glowing, and it seems like it will make me laugh.


A Praying Life– Sadly, I know my prayer life isn’t where it should or could be.  I’m hoping this book will help me to make it more of a priority.


The Kite Runner– I know I’m about 12 years late to the party on this one.  My friend urged me to read this book ions ago, but I just picked it up at Goodwill for 50 cents, so what better time to delve in, than now?


Biking Across America– Paul Stutzman lost his wife to cancer and it spurred him to quit his job and hike the Appalachian Trail.  This follow-up book covers his next adventure.

The Road to Little Dribbling– Bill Bryson is pretty funny, and I can’t wait to read more about his adopted country, the UK.

Personal Growth

The War of Art– I’ve heard so many good things about this book from podcasters and bloggers, it’s time I check it out.

The One Thing–  I read this book in late 2014 and it was excellent.  It’s worth a re-read.

Living Forward– Michael Hyatt was a guest on Dale Partridge’s podcast a few weeks back, and the two convinced me that I needed to read this book.  I’ve even requested the book-on-CD for my husband so we can talk about it together.  Michael Hyatt has made a profound impact on me- check out his blog HERE.

What are you reading this summer?  I don’t read much fiction.  Is there something you’d recommend?

    I loved The One Thing and The War of Art is on my to read list. The next book on my list is The More of Less by Joshua Becker about minimalism!

    I really want to read the Bill Bryson book. I’ve read all his other things. I also need to read the War of Art, since a lot of people have mentioned that one!

      I’ve only read Bryson’s Australia and Appalachian Trail books…the reviews on this one look solid! Maybe we should do a book-club for the War of Art?
