Graduation and Summer Reading Lists

Posted by Anne Yorks on Monday, June 20, 2011

Graduation season is always busy with both college and high school projects. I did several, including a few for Penn State. The only set I had time to take photos of are the following. They were a custom order that included cheerleaders in addition to the regular cookie set.

 

The friends that were graduating were two brunettes and one blonde. :)


Now that many of us are in summer vacation mode, are you building your summer reading list yet? I love to read when I have free time and recently asked for book suggestions on the Flour Box Facebook page. I just received a new Color NOOK as a gift and I'm looking to fill it up with lots of great book ideas! Anyone out there use the LendMe feature? I'm dying to try it out.

Here are the suggestions that were submitted on the Facebook page:
The Paris Wife by Paula McLain (I just borrowed this from the library)
The Help by Kathryn Stockett (recommended by several people - just bought this from the B&N Nook store)
The Romantics by Galt Neiderhoffer
Books by mystery writer Mary Higgins Clark 
Heaven is For Real by Todd Burpo (recommended by two people)
The Outlander Series by Diana Gabledon
Author Beverly Lewis (Amish Series)

Some books I have recently read and recommend are: 
A Cup of Friendship by Deborah Rodriguez
Baking in Kigali by Gail Parkin
The Shadow of Your Smile by Mary Higgins Clark
Devil's Food Cake Murder by JoAnne Fluke
The Mark of the Lion Series by Francine Rivers
    A Voice in the Wind
    An Echo in the Darkness   
    As Sure as the Dawn
Heat Wave by Richard Castle (these are the books from the Castle TV show)
Naked Heat by Richard Castle (these are the books from the Castle TV show)
My Life in France by Julia Child
Minding Frankie by Maeve Binchy (I would recommend anything by Maeve!) 

Has anyone read the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Series? I haven't checked it out, but it looks very interesting - feedback welcome!

So what are you reading this summer? Let me know! I'm always looking for new ideas. Please leave a comment below with your favorite book ideas.

Happy Reading!!

    Tabitha:I can’t seem to take my eyes off of these pictures. I just keep smnilig and thinking of how blessed I am to have Lynnleigh Faith (Ladybug) as my grand-daughter. You do such a wonderful job at catching such special moments. Knowing how much she loves to play dress-up, I am sure she had a marvelous time! Thank you for the love you give in taking pictures of precious little ones like MY Grandchildren! God Bless You! Mamajanice’

    I’m a huge fan of Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series (One for the Money…on up to her recently released Smokin’ Seventeen). They make you laugh out loud and keep you wanting more.

    Another one I really liked, though you would want to read a review to see it is one that you like (some would NOT like it – has disturbing parts) is The Room.
