My Pick from the Modern Mrs Darcy Summer Reading Guide.

Summer RG

Each year Anne Bogel and her team come out with the summer reading guide. (You can get your own copy). This year some are back list books, and I have read some of them. This week I am looking at the five I want to read. Next week I’ll mention five I have read and liked.

The Cartographers by Peng Shepherd. One I have already mentioned as one I want to read. Even since then I have seen great reviews for this book, so even more decided to read it.  Library request in.

Book Lovers by Emily Henry.  Yes had already marked this as one I’d read. I am on the request list at the library for this one.

Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Gramus. I hadn’t thought of reading this one but have seen a few good reviews for it and I would certainly like to try it. I have put a request in at the library and am number 68! So must be popular. There are 10 copies.

The BodyGuard  by Katherine Centre. I already had this one in mind and as I have read Katherine Center before, I know I will want to buy this is some format.

What We Were Promised by Lucy Tan. This is a bit of a wild card book for me. It is set in Shangai and is about a particular family and deals with things like rich v poor, urban v rural and old v new values.  It’s a back list book It’s available at the library and I will put in a request when I see I have a space for reading it. There are no reserves on the book as it is a 2018 book.

So any top book worm the guide you’d be drawn to reading?

  1. There are some great covers in this selection. I don’t know as I’m picky and when I finish a book I like to fly by the seat of my pants when choosing my next read. I do have The Spanish Love Deception right here that needs to be read as there is a waiting list. I finished It Happened One Summer; it was fun and a good rom-com.

  2. Oh, my gosh – EVERYONE is talking about Lessons in Chemistry! It sounds great. And I have The Cartographers on audio and hope to get to it soon (I enjoyed her The Book of M). From that grid, I loved The River and Harry’s Trees, and I’m sure you’ve heard me raving about This Tender Land! Probably my favorite book so far this year. Lots of others there I would like to read, too. Enjoy!

  3. Kathryn, I read Book Lovers last month for the Emily Richards reading challenge.  Not bad, but only 3*.  I just finished Bloomsbury Girls, which is a sequel to The Jane Austen Society, and I loved it.  I’m going to read The Last Days in Barcelona next week, because I love Chanel Cleeton.  I have already ordered Two Nights in Lisbon from my library.  I also signed up for this MMDSRG.  I was glad to find out about The Bodyguard, because I like Katherine Center, so I will order that, too.  I appreciate your recommendations.

    1. Looks like we are reading much the same books. I am interested to see how I go with Book Lovers, and going to get it from the library so I don’t spend money on something I am meh about.
