Kristen Hey guys- I am gearing up for a vacation next month and am looking for some recommendations for good summer reads. Preferably quick, fun reads, nothing too heavy or processy.

Elizabeth☮ i would recommend:

Wonder by R.J. Palacio
When She Woke by Hillary Jordan
The Midwife's Confession by Diane Chamberlain
Staying At Daisy's by Jill Mansell
Look Again by Lisa Scottoline
The Secret Lives of Dresses by Erin McKean
A Dog's Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron
Girl in Translation by Jean Kwok
The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly
The Good Thief by Hannah Tinti
A Walk in the Woods Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail by Bill Bryson
The Tipping Point How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference by Malcolm Gladwell


for me, these were quick and interesting reads.

Nancy, you are in for a treat. It's one of my favorites, and they regularly do posts on books. I also recommend brainpickings.org, although their book recommendations tend to be more science-y.
