Summer Reading

This summer isn't shaping up the way that I wanted. I'm guessing that's true for you as well.

The concerts that I was hoping to attend are all cancelled, as are most of the local community festivals that we might have enjoyed.

My family's annual beach vacation is in doubt, although no real decision has been made yet. It's a highlight of every summer, and a time when I especially love to read.

But no matter what else is cancelled, my summer reading list isn't. Here's what I'm planning to read over the next few months.
  • Educated: A Memoir by Tara Westover
  • Why Religion?: A Personal Story by Elaine Pagels
  • Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
  • Theft by Finding: Diaries 1977-2002 by David Sedaris
  • Overtime: Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines at the Crossroads of College Football by John U. Bacon
  • Native: Identity, Belonging and Rediscovering God by Kaitlin B. Curtice
  • They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera
  • The Toll by Cherie Priest
For me, it's the usual assortment of novels, memoir, spirituality, and Michigan sports.

What are you planning to read this summer?

I have a few suggestions if you need them.
