Summer is the perfect time to catch up on my reading! For those of you wondering what eclectic mix of books, and trust me it is eclectic, this mama is perusing, here is my summer reading list. Also, I love that many of these are available as audio because let’s face it…mama doesn’t always get the luxury of sitting down with a good book. Sometimes she has laundry to fold, dishes to wash, or a half-naked four-year-old to chase around!
I’m just keeping it real, folks!

When we are on the go all I need are a great pair of affordable earbuds and audible to get my “read” on! Earbuds work great when listening to podcasts as well. So, whether we find ourselves by the beach, lake, or kiddie pool, this summer I will have my summer reading lined up.
