Tomorrow marks the official day of summer.  Here in Atlanta the high has been 90s pretty much all week.  Two of my summer goals were to have start a summer vegetable garden with organic veggies which is done and underway and the other was to list up my summer reading list.  Last summer I only managed to read 2 books, but I have higher expectations this summer.  Here’s my list, it has summer enjoyment books as well as some educational ones.

catching fire

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

I’ve pretty much put off watching the movie because I haven’t finished the book yet.   When Living Social had their try Audible for free deal for two months, I jumped on it.  I’ve been listening to the audio version while I design new jewelry creations and commuting in the car–very convenient.  Can’t wait to finish and watch the movie!


By love possessed

By Love Possessed Stories by Lorna Goodison

I couldn’t wait to read this when I saw it listed in Essence magazine (almost 2 years ago), and it’s written by a fellow Jamaican…I must read it!  I can’t wait to read these collections of short stories.


david and goliath

David and Goliath by Malcolm Gladwell

I’m a fan of Gladwell and his work.  David and Goliath speaks to how to deal with our obstacles and reshaping the way we think about them in order to come out successful.


the lean startup


The Lean Startup by Eric Ries

This has been on my Pinterest board book list for quite some time and I think it’s about time that I read it.  Whether you have an entrepreneur or an intrapreneur way of thinking this book is for you, so let’s read it together.


happy wives club

Happy Wives Club by Fawn Weaver

I had the honor of meeting Fawn last October at Blogalicious and she has to be one of the most down to earth people that I’ve ever met, so when I saw that she was coming out with a book I knew I had to add it to my reading list. See what the secrets are as Fawn travels 12 countries, 6 continents to achieve 1 mission about marriage.
