Normally, I hit summer with a fully planned reading plan. One year I re-read Harry Potter. Another year I re-read all Austen and Bronte. This year I find myself with no plan. Part of the problem is that the weather was so horrible for so long that I did not feel summer would ever arrive. Also, work is stressful and busy. This summer is a "fly by the seat of my pants" reading plan. Here is what I have read thus far.....
William Kent Krueger
Life after Life
We Bought a Zoo
Eating in the Light
World War Z
On a whim, I decided to read the Left Behind series. I passed them up when they were popular. I don't believe the doctrine in the books but I thought they might be entertaining. I've read three. They are not well written. But once I start with a series, I almost always finish it.
Upcoming are two books for book club
William Kent Krueger
Since I've not read 1-3 in the series.....I'm going to try and read them before I read book 4.
I also have book 11 in the Psychic Eye series
This list will keep me busy.
What are you reading? Do you plan a summer reading list?

I seriously don’t know what’s wrong with me. I really want to blog. I LOVE blogs. I follow so many blogs that My Yahoo won’t let me add any new blogs. I spend a lot of time reading blogs. It is safe to say that I am obsessed with blogs. I have many thoughts that run through my head and I think, “I need to blog this”. But I don’t follow through. I don’t know if I am scared or just lazy? It irritates my husband. He tells me often that I should be blogging more. When we have conversations, he often says, “You really need to blog this”!
I do have such a wide variety of interests. TV, food, books, movies, houses, current events just to name a few. Yet, I feel like I should focus on one thing. Maybe that’s what is holding me back. My mind is ALL over the place 24/7 yet I think that my blog should be focused. Perhaps I need to let go of that and really just let the blog be like my mind. Eclectic, off beat, a little weird, and fun.
Going forward I’m going to be more stream of consciousness and I guess we will see how it goes.
