My Summer 2014 Reading List

It's time for another reading list! These lists have been SO useful for me... both for accountability and record keeping! Since I started them I've been reading/listening more than I was before (see Summer 2013 and Winter 2014).

  • The Rosie Project: A Novel by Graeme Simsion 
         (rather adoring the narrator's voice, a story about a geneticist with Asperger's Syndrome who has decided it's time to find a wife in a very scientific way!)
  • Tepper Isn't Going Out by Calvin Trillian
         (for book group, haven't read any of Trillian's work and I think I might be opening up a pretty great can of worms!)
  • Up, Down and All Around Stitch Dictionary by Wendy Bernard
        (this is actually on its way to me as I type... and I can't wait to dig into it, I think it will be a great tool for my Craftsy Cowl Design students! A book review is in order!)
  • Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
        (though certain scenes make me blush while listening to them I decided it was time to restart this series from scratch... a great story to knit/sew/cook/clean/drive by!)
On my Shelf:
Just Finished:
  • The Signature of All Things: A Novel by Elizabeth Gilbert
       (I listened to this 22 hour long audiobook while deadline knitting and cannot begin to express how much  I enjoyed it.  Historical Fiction that spans 2 generations of botanists.. if there is on book from this list that I think is a MUST read, this is it!)
  • Beautiful Wreck by Larissa Brown
       (a viking love story... need I say more?)
  • Pack Up the Moon by Rachael Herron
       (I laughed, I cried, not at all what I expected, and an excellent read!)
  • The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriar
       (a late night impulse purchase that sucked me in... set in Australia with great character development!)
So, please share what are you reading, listening, and/or watching!  I'd love to hear.... with the deadlines I have on hand I am going to plow through these and need more material before long!


  1. I just finished "The Thirteenth Tale" after having it around for ever in the to be read mountains and just loved it.

  2. I'm totally re-reading Outlander via audible now! I wanted to re-read, but cannot read and knit at the same time... audible is brilliant! I don't know why I never thought of this, thanks for the link
