Behind the Blog 15: Summer Fun


Behind The Blog is a meme to help bloggers connect their life and interests to the content showcased on their blog. The co-hosts Faye Kathe and Melissa will provide a different topic, idea, or question every week that bloggers can relate to themselves and the books, films, or media they find interesting!

As summer slowly winds down, I thought it might be nice to reflect on the sunny season. Did you take any fun trips this summer? Make an amazing memory you’d like to share? What’s your favorite summer activity? In relation to books: What are some good “beach reads” you’d recommend for these last few weekends of summer?

For me, summer was relatively simple. I did go on a trip, but it was more for personal reasons than recreation.

I don't think there are any particularly "amazing" memories, but there are plenty of fun times that I've had. I went to the beach a couple of times, went to the fair, went to an apple festival. I also go to see the Picasso exhibit in Toronto, which was very interesting, and I feel lucky to have gotten to see it.

My favorite summer activity is swimming. I love to swim. I'd stay in the water all day if I could. I also love reading in the summer sun, but reading is really an all seasons activity. Hopefully I'll do a little more reading in the sun before the rain comes.


I've got a few summery beach reads to recommend. Let me know if you've read any of these and what you think of them.

Silver Girl

This is a really good story with love, friendship, loss and a summer on the beach.

One Summer

This is the story of a family that comes together after a bout of sickness and a major tragedy. The beach doesn't heal all wounds, but it can help.

Those are just a few of the great summer/beach reads that I've read in the past, there are lots more. What beach reads would you recommend?

I am so behind on my summer reading! I got in a few good books but not as many as I'd like!
