Summer reading so far

As if it’s not apparent yet, I’m a lover of lists. I made one at the beginning of summer of books I wanted to read, and here’s how it’s going so far:

Get in Trouble, Kelly Link
Ghosting, Kirby Gann
There’s Something I Want You to Do, Charles Baxter
Writing and Selling Your Mystery Novel, Hallie Ephron
Faith, Jennifer Haigh
This is a Story of a Happy Marriage, Ann Patchett
Thunderstruck & Other Stories, Elizabeth McCracken
Loitering, Charles D’Ambrosio
Burying Water, K.A. Tucker
Lexicon, Max Barry
I Can’t Complain, Elinor Lippmann
All the Light We Cannot See, Anthony Doerr
Landline, Rainbow Rowell

As much as I love a list, I’m also a bit resistant to doing exactly what I’m told so I read these instead:

I Was Told There’d Be Cake, Sloane Crosley
Cycle of the Werewolf, Stephen King
Duma Key, Stephen King
The Happiness Project, Gretchen Rubin (even better the second time)
The Wind Through the Keyhole, Stephen King
Joyland, Stephen King
The Winter of Our Disconnect, Susan Marshart
Hand to Mouth: Living in Bootstrap America, Linda Tirado (I’m on a nonfiction kick)
Finders Keepers, Stephen King (the last of the SK novels!)
This is the Story of a Happy Marriage, Ann Patchett (lovely)
The First Bad Man, Miranda July (hilarious and weird!)
The Hour I First Believed, Wally Lamb
Everything’s Eventual, Stephen King (starting on the short stories and novellas now)

What have you been reading this summer??
