Today's July Blogging Challenge theme is a topic dear to my heart - Reading!  I always have a pile of books that I am working on, or hope to start on soon. A couple weeks ago, I did a list of the Top Ten Books on my TBR for Summer 2015 on my book blog, so some of the following books are taken from that list. Naturally, I've read a couple of those already, and have changed some on the list. (My TBR list is constantly shifting and changing!)

I just finished In Good Company by Jen Turano, and reviewed it. I recommend it as a light, humorous summer read, perfect for the beach if you like romantic comedy in a historical setting.
In Good Company (A Class of Their Own, #2)

I'm currently reading A Study in Death (A Lady Darby Mystery) by Anna Lee Huber - it's the latest in her Lady Darby series, which I love.
A Study in Death (Lady Darby, #4)

I had been reading The Fatal Tree (Bright Empires) by Stephen R Lawhead before A Study in Death arrived at the library for me. I'll get back to it very soon!

I'm working on The Conversation by Leigh A. Bortins for a review coming in a couple weeks!
Classical Conversations Review

Since we're gearing up to start working on Illuminating Literature: When Worlds Collide from Writing with Sharon Watson (for a review coming towards the end of the summer), Kennady and I will both be reading Pudd'nhead Wilson by Mark Twain and The War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells.

This one - Unstuff: Making Room in Your Life for What Really Matters by Hayley & Michael DiMarco - has been sitting on my TBR stack for awhile now, and I really hope to get to it this summer. Because, boy-howdy, we do need to unstuff!
Unstuff: Making Room in Your Life for What Really Matters

A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson - I've read this before and laughed so hard! I want to re-read it this summer, before I make plans to see the movie!
A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail

I recently picked up this one for Kindle - The Coffee Trader by David Liss. It sounded really interesting; a historical novel featuring coffee is obviously right up my alley!

A Royal Pain by Rhys Bowen - This is the audiobook I'm listening to right now. Well, not right NOW, but you know what I mean.
A Royal Pain (Her Royal Spyness Mysteries, #2)
