Summer Reading: 10 Books I'll Be Reading This Summer

Summer is upon us, and that means I can finally catch my breath, and get back to blogging here on Mundie Kids. It was a crazy past few weeks, and sadly my blogs took a back seat. Now that I can catch my breathe, I can catch up on the blog, and get all my drafted reviews up (don't judge. haha). Summer time also means it's time for SUMMER READING! I've got a lot of great books my kids and I planning on reading this summer, and I thought I'd take a moment and share a list of a few of those books here. Though you'll see this list up on Mundie Moms tomorrow for a belated Top Ten Tuesday post, I also wanted to share it here. 

Here's a list of MG books I'm looking forward to reading this summer. (Click the book's title to be taken to it's Goodreads page)

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
