Summer Reading Linky

Well now that I am offically part of my first book study through the blog I figured why not join up to a linky party (or two)?!  One of my most favorite things to do of all time is READ!  My Kindle is the second best thing I've ever bought in my life, the first is our dog Bailey (if that tells you anything).  So I joined Mrs. Bainbridge's and Mrs. Stanford's linky parties and can't wait to hear what everyone else is reading to add it to my ever growing pile!

This summer there seem to be far more professional books in my pile than pleasure, but that doesn't seem to be bothering me.  That obviously means that I'm in the right profession!  So here is my summer reading list so far:

The Daily Five and CAFE (read this last year but totally worth a second look) by Gail Boushey and Joan Moser

Guiding Readers: Making the Most of the 18-Minute Guided Reading Lesson by Lori Jamison Rog

(This is my book study!  I'll be reviewing chapter 6 on July 8th-11th)

The Book Whisperer by Donalyn Miller

Power Reading Workshop by Laura Candler

Whew!  I think that's it... I feel like I might be missing one but let's hope not, lol.  Now for the good stuff that keeps me sane when I just need a break from life:

The Maze Runner by James Dashner (Just finished it and LOVED it)

The Scorch Trials by James Dashner (#2 in the trilogy)

Death Cure by James Dashner (#3 in the trilogy)

Susan Mallery's newest books - Let's face it, I love a good cheesey romance novel where I know there will be a happy ending and her books make me laugh out loud!  Just can't help but fall in love with her characters.

Get started on the 2012-2013 Sunshine State Books (15) - I can't let the kids beat me this year!

So there in all it's wonderful glory is my summer reading list y'all!  What are you reading this summer?  Any recommendations?
