My Reading List for This Summer

By Fredrica Syren:

I try to read books as much as possible throughout the year but must admit it’s difficult to find the time with 3 kids, a homestead and a husband who travels a lot. Then comes summer break and I can read a lot. Here are some of my favorite books from this summer’s reading.







You Can Buy Happiness (and It’s Cheap)

This book is about a woman named Tammy and her journey towards simplifying her life and living more on less money. It also features other people’s inspirational stories.









Gone Tomorrow—The Hidden Life of Garbage

A book about garbage, how we ended up with so much and what happens to it.









The Handmaid’s Tale byMargaret Atwood

I know I might be the last one to jump on this book and TV series’s bandwagon, but once I began reading it, I couldn’t put it down!!! The story is about Ofred’s life in the theonimic government of Gilead.








Paris for One and Other Stories by Jojo Moyes

A story about Nell, who never had been anywhere. On her first trip to Paris, she finds a new independent self. Since I was going to Paris, I wanted to read at least one book that takes place in Paris.

These books can be bought either used or on Kindle for a zero-waste summer reading.
