Summer is a great time to relax outside in the nice weather and do some light reading. In the evenings, I love to sit on my front porch with a cold beverage and a good book. It is a quiet place and just so relaxing.
I have read quite a few books this summer.I light to keep my reading light for the most part but I also love to read cookbooks. I’ve put together some of my favorite books to read for pleasure to cookbooks to books that will help your child learn to cook this summer!
My guilty pleasure book this summer was Girl on the Train. It was a fantastic read that kept you guessing until the very end of the book. This book was written in a similar fashion as Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl. Read this suspenseful and voyeuristic book now and watch the movie later.
Looking for some great light recipes for the summer? If you are a fan of the blog Skinnytaste, then you will love The SkinnyTaste Cookbook! Blogs are great for recipes but it is also nice to have a physical book in your hands to flip through too! I picked this 2014 release cookbook on ThriftBooks.com.
If getting your kids to cook their own meals and snacks is on your list for the summer, then check out Paula Deen’s: My First Cookbook. This was yet another one of my ThriftBooks.com gently used finds and it has great step by step instructions to help your kids make foods from breakfast to dinner!
One of the paperback books I picked up on ThriftBooks.com is Cold Hit by Stephen J. Cannell. I haven’t started reading this one yet but it is a thriller, mystery type of book which will make it great for pool or porch side reading.
