With summer in full force, we are enjoying some extra reading time as a family. Lately, it has been really fun to see my oldest diving deeper into reading. I know it can be hard to think of book ideas, so today I wanted to share what our family is reading. There is quite a variety and hopefully can give you some ideas to add to your summer reading list!
Last weekend, we headed to the local library and all picked out some books. My biggest tip for finding books for yourself, is to go on the library website ahead of time and put some books on hold. It saves so much time for a busy mama!

What My Husband is Reading:
He is reading The Screwtape Letters and is loving it! C.S. Lewis is one of his favorite authors but he has never read this book. From the parts I have read, it seems very interesting and definitely a good read!
What I am Reading:
I have made a commitment to read the nonfiction books I already have before I purchase new ones. However, I also do want to read some fiction this summer. I like mixing in reading one of each at the same time. So right now I am reading Uninvited and Everyone Brave is Forgiven.
What My Boys are Reading:
Big Nate Series and Notebook of Doom Series– My eight year old is loving both of these series! They are typical boy books and he loves them! We like to ask him questions afterwards to ask what is happening in the story.
Pete the Cat- These books just are the absolute best. My five year old is a huge fan of them. Recently, we read Pete the Cat at the Beach and it was such a fun book. I love the encouraging focus of each book.
My Lift the Flap Bible Stories– My five year old loves books where you can lift flaps so this book has been a current favorite. Plus it has all of his favorite Bible stories in it.
What My Toddler is Reading:
Now I Eat My ABCs and Barnyard Dance– Also many other books but currently she is loving these!
