The Modern Mrs. Darcy Summer Reading Guide is here! I first learned of Modern Mrs. Darcy a few years back through her summer reading guide which I stumbled upon somewhere. Maybe Pinterest? Anyways, I found lots of great new books through her guide. Her latest one just came out and I’m already adding books to my TBR list. She has six categories. Not all of them appeal to me but I think I’ll *try* at least one per category.
Here’s what I’m drawn to from this year’s list: (The following are affiliate links.)
Twisty Novels Category >> He Said She Said by Erin Kelly
History + >> The Lost Book of the Grail by Charlie Lovett
Thought Provoking Stories >> At Home in the World by Tsh Oxenrider
This is perhaps at the top of my list. I “know” Tsh from the blogosphere and she managed to do something I would have loved to have done: travel to different places around the world with her whole family (including 3 kids under 10) for 9 months.
Intense Novels >> The Confusion of Languages by Siobahn Fallon
I almost didn’t find something in this category but this one may work. I like that it’s about military families (I came from a military family) living in Jordan (I’ve visited the Middle East) and I love languages and understand how confusing they can be with colloquial expressions and direct interpretations.
Families Are Complicated >> The Identicals by Elin Hilderbrand
I’ve not read any Elin Hilderbrand before but since she is known as the “queen of the summer novel” I thought I’d give her a try with this book. Since it’s about identical twins and I’m married to one and have identical twin nieces, I feel drawn to it. Plus it’s about Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard, two places I’d like to visit.
Beachy Reads >> Windfall by Jennifer E Smith
