Summer is a great time for reading. Scratch that, all the time is a great time for reading. But we enter the summer with a little higher reading expectations. So I wanted to share my summer reading list for 2019.

Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy by Eric Metaxas

This is one I’ve actually started, but I know I will need a break from. It’s heavy material so I am reading it slowly. But it’s all about the life and death (at the hands of Nazis) of Dietrich Bonhoeffer and his legacy that continues today.

Bridges of Clay by Markus Zusak

Zusak has long been one of my favorite authors. And this book has been on my list a long time. It is about a family, whose father left when they were young, only to have their father return in an unexpected way.

Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

So many of you recommended this to me. I’m eager to read it. It’s about a murder mystery and a young woman’s coming of age story wrapped up in the North Carolina coast.

Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng

I really loved her first novel “Everything I never told you.” It was so sad but it left a hopeful note in my heart.

Something in the Water by Catherine Steadman

This seems like the perfect summer mystery. A couple on holiday go scuba diving and find something in the water and a mystery ensues.

I Think You're Wrong (But I'm Listening): A Guide to Grace-Filled Political Conversations by Sarah Stewart Holland and Beth A Silvers.

I am listening to this on Audible. It’s all about how to have political conversations without wanting to punch someone in the throat. Okay, they put it much more tactfully than that. I hate that there is no discourse anymore. And I am just interested to see what the coauthors have to say.

I would love to know what you’re reading this summer. Leave me a comment below and tell me.
