Making Lists: Our Summer Reading

*Some links are affiliate links, please see full disclosure below*

This week the Review Crew is talking about writing lists and it got me thinking about what types of lists I regularly write.

I have to-do lists, curriculum lists, chore lists, book lists, grocery lists, and more. Life sometimes feels like a big series of lists and check-boxes.  

One day I might unpack that thought a little more but today I thought I would share a list of some of the books we are planning to read with my children this summer.

Reading Lord of the Rings at the river!

First, my husband is currently reading the Lord of the Rings trilogy with my seven-year-old. He certainly could not read it on his own, but he is really enjoying listening to his father read it and talks about it often.

Next, my older children and I are reading In His Steps together this month. We each have our own copy to read and then we will come together to discuss it. I read it many years ago and I am excited to revisit it with them.

I am looking forward to reading Wednesdays in the Tower aloud to everyone except the fifteen-year-old. We read the first book in that series during the school year and they loved it.

Finally, we are finishing listening to the Chronicles of Narnia as a family. This is not the first time we have listened to them, but this is the first time the younger children have heard it all straight through. We started while we were on a missions trip back in March and did over 20 hours of the 33-hour audio version. We will be finishing them up as we do a little traveling and riding over the summer.

In addition, we will be reading plenty of picture books with the younger boys but I do not have a set list for those at the moment. We will read whatever we have on hand or they pick out at the library. If you have any suggestions for good summer-themed picture books, please share them in the comments.

Make sure to check out what the other Crew Members had to say about making lists!
