It’s Summer! Or almost? Oh, who cares about technicalities? I’m so excited to dig out my summer reading recommendations and my TBR! Without further ado, let’s hop into today’s post!
My Summer Reading Recs ||
1| Dandelion Dust by Faith Potts
This book screams summer! Four-wheelers, dandelions… and the heartbreaking reminder that life is fleeting. I am rereading this book this summer and will be officially reviewing it here later this season!
2| Freedom by Faith Potts
I’m sorry! It’s summery too and is such a good book! I mean, it’s South Carolina, Marines, Ice Cream… Okay, why do I associate Marines with summer…? *Gasp* do military branches have a season aesthetic??
Anywho! Pick up this story when you get the chance!
3| Love Needs No Words by Faith Potts
Okay, girl, there’s something about you and summer settings isn’t there? *glares at her for taking over my summer recs* Seriously though, this is a short, sweet read that I love. It has a beach and a little café and a non-verbal person that I just want to protect… and it just needs to be read.
(Note, these three books do have romantic storylines. I do not condone premarital hand-holding/hugging, but honestly, these books are so sweet and clean! So much deeper in meaning and message than your average Romance!)
4| Quest for Leviathan by Amanda Tero
A Biblical fiction with a strong forgiveness message! I highly recommend this! Amanda Tero is one of my favorite authors and this short story was no disappointment! Who doesn’t want to sail away after a sea monster at least once in their life??
5| Resistance by Jaye L. Knight
Don’t ask me why, but this book just says summer in the forest to me. Mild censoring is suggested for younger readers because of the violence (persecuted church-type things) and some mild romantic elements.
My Summer Reading List ||
*Note these are not recommendations. I have not read these books and cannot vouch for their content. Also, I censor my books a lot, so there’s that *halo*
Besides rereading 1-4 above… *Halo*
1| Greater than Angels by Carol Matas
This is set in Autumn, but for some reason, I’m just drawn to it for this season. Makes no sense to me, but it’s been a while since I’ve read a Holocaust story…
2| Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell with Patrick Robinson
I started this book last year and somehow it got left behind. It wasn’t because it’s boring! And I don’t know about you, but I need a good Soldier story, biographical or fiction, to complete my summer!
3| Indivisible by Travis Thrasher
Based on a true story, this book is the novelization of the movie… which I adore! As I said, Soldier stories are for the Summer!
4| A Better Place by Jenna Starr
Had to get me an Indie book in here! I read Jenna’s sequel to this book when she was drafting it, so I’m excited to finally read the back story!
5| Fighting for Life by Lila Rose
I am way too excited to read this book! I’ve been eyeing it for months and now it’s on my shelf! Time for a heavy pro-life read that I know will have me in tears.
1|Promises at Pyramid Rock by Jess Mastorakos
This is a military story set in Hawaii. I have an ARC copy I need to read and review on GR, so I’m excited to see what this story has to offer!
2|Hurray for Newsy Jones by Rebekah A. Morris
A new short story that I can’t wait to devour! Her books are always so good!
3| A Very Bookish Fourth of July by Various Authors
I love Independence Day and I love me so good old patriotic stories. When they happen to be retellings of classics, it’s that much better!
4|Once Upon a Summer by Various Authors
Another compilation of summery retellings!
5| Freedom Formula by Bryce A. Chandler
I think this is a dystopian-type story? It’s patriotic, that’s all I know and the author knows the truth about the War Between the States so I’m gonna give it a shot!
What are you reading today?? What are you planning to read this summer?
Have a blessed day and God Bless America!
