Top 5 Ultimate Beach Reads for Mom
Getting read-y for summer used to be my thing. A tall glass of lemonade, a beach chair and a great summer book would leave me content for hours. Now, I don’t know about you, but this mommy thing has got me shook. My days are off the hook. Making the time for a great book has been hard to do.
When the Lifetime Moms got together recently and began to talk about their picks for the best summer beach reads I had to shyly raise my hand and ask if “Goodnight Moon” could count. It’s as close to "New Moon" as I could get.
And I just found out that the “lazy days” of summer are brought to you by mom. Lazy days are made possible by that ever present force standing on the beach or by the screen door with the bug spray, sun block, water, snacks, ointment for cuts and bruises, sand bucket and shovel, towel, hat and final stern warning to stay in or out.
In addition to getting inaugurated into the motherhood, I have admittedly been writing a little more than reading lately. So let me write my mother’s must-have summer reading list for you.
The ultimate keeping it real mother’s summer reading list:
- Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown
- The Cat In The Hat by Dr. Seuss
- Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault
- Ten Little Lady Bugs by Melanie Gerth
- Honey, Sweetie, Puddin Pie by Angela Burgin Logan (Coming Soon!)
The recommended mother's summer reading list:
Sex, lies and murder...
Hadassah: One Night With The King by Tommy Tenney for a steamy romance that is a historic epic read.
The great story...
To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. The story of Atticus and Scout is a page turner that reminds me why I fell in love with reading.
101 Wisdom Keys by Mike Murdock. This book will change your life.
The Holy Bible inspired by Jesus Christ. The one book I do read every day. I minimally read a chapter from the days Proverbs & Psalms.
Twilight Series by Stephanie Meyer. Tween, Schween. This series of books is not regulated to the younger set only. Themes on loyalty and love are something that moms can connect with. Hopefully, after the 214th read of “Goodnight Moon” I’ll make it to “New Moon”!
