Strangers + Summer Reading List

That is what my little blog and I have become
And I suppose it's because 
we have been busy
So busy that we've been out of town the last 5 weekends.  Yes.  5. 
I thought summers were supposed to be time to slow down?!?

The good news is that this weekend....
we are home.

So, I'm hoping to catch up with all of you in blogland.  I've missed your posts and reading about your lives!  I hope I haven't missed too much!

For now, I will leave y'all with my summer reading list - please share yours!

Also, I found this link on pinterest and it has some great books, plus a few I've never heard of, sooo
you may be able to find some you'd like to read via this link as well!

So far, here is my list:

Bringing Up Bebe: One American Mother Discovers the Wisdom of French Parenting 

No, I'm not having a bebe, but I am obsessed with all things French and I do hope to have a bebe at some point and when I do, I want them to be well-behaved and chill, so after learning about this book via Tessa, I had to pick it up.  I read the first 2 chapters last night - I'm hooked.
Has anyone read this yet?  Thoughts?

Murder on Astor Place

This book was mentioned on the link I included above.  The library only had one of Ms. Thompson's book so I read that one first.  It was pretty good, so I broke down and bought this one from amazon.  It's still on my nightstand.

This is the one I managed to snag from the library!  Pretty good.

Murder on Marble Row


Fun book.  Very Hunger Games-esque, which of course I loved.  This is a great poolside or beachside read.  


The second in the series.  Had to break down and buy this one, too. 

Saving CeeCee Honeycutt

A light read that is based in my old town, Savannah.
Sort of reminded me of The Help.  I really enjoyed this one.

Speaking of Savannah, if you haven't gotten a good cookbook lately you must


get this one.

Back in the Day Bakery is a from scratch local bakery located in Savannah.  When I lived there I probably ate at this place at least once a week!  These people are true talents and they obviously love what they do.  They make the best cupcakes you've ever put in your mouth.  Total worth the 20 or so bucks to find out how they make those scrumptious delicacies! 

Well, that is all for now.
Please share with me what y'all are reading!

Can't wait to catch up with everyone this weekend!
