The pelicans swooped down on the water as the sun peaks over the waves. Alexia, my friend from Texas, and I pack our boat bags and drive to meet the fishing guide.
The wind is blowing a bit more than I would hope, it may be a bit challenging to cast.
The morning slips by and the warm sun mixes with occasional rain. The fishing is slow. Late in the morning we find some small snapper. We cook them for dinner. Ahh a day well spent.
Now, today is a reading day on the beach.
Thought I would share some of of my favorite summer reads.
In the silly but entertaining category: Perfect beach read.
“Where’d You Go, Bernadette”, this quick read is so much fun, with no big thinking required.
“Big Little Lies”, the author is from Australia–great quick fun book.
“Lessons from Madam Chic”, I love this look at French life. It made me want to upgrade my own life.
“Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand”, a quick and simple lovely story.
On the serious side:
“Lost Wife”, a tender and enjoyable love story.
“The language of Flowers”, little bit too dramatic or me, but I enjoyed it.
“State of Wonder”, this book is very special to me because I have been to the Amazon River. Terrific story.
“The Nightingale”, I love a World War Two book. Great read.
On my list to read:
“A house of Wonder”
“H is for Hawk”
I am anxious to hear about what you are reading and what you think of the reading list.
