One of my favorite pastimes when we go camping is to sit next to the campfire and read a great book.  Over this last weekend trip to Gator Grounds, I managed to finish two books between trips to the pool! I started one on the way up to Bunkie, and the other I finished on the drive home.  I just love getting lost in a good book, it is the ultimate in relaxation when I’m surrounded by the sights and sounds of the great outdoors.

With this in mind, I thought I would go ahead and share some of my favorite recent books that I’ve read that would be great for some R&R at the campsite, I will probably do a similar post as this once in a while, so no worries if you’ve already read any of these!

 In a Dark, Dark Wood

This book was a great suspense thriller. It is one of those whodunits that leaves you wondering till the very end.  I couldn’t put this one down and I brought it back out to the pool with me to read the last chapter while the mister and little guy took a ride in the lazy river. This one got 5 stars!

Saving CeeCee Honeycutt
I really enjoyed this coming of age story about CeeCee and the connections she made with the women around her.  This book had moments that made me get teary   eyed but I recommend it to everyone who is asking for a great summer read.       Another one that I gave 5 stars!

Small Great Things

This was one of those books that really made me think.  It is a very honest book that looks into the depths of racism, perception, and how something very small can make a huge difference in someone’s life.  Another book that I gave 5 stars!

The Woman in Cabin

Another suspense thriller by Ruth Ware, this is the story of what a journalist   experiences on a luxury cruise.  Another unique book having you wondering who did what, it also has you trying to imagine yourself in the luxurious life of the exceedingly wealthy people in the book and understanding what they will do to protect it.  I gave this one 4.5 stars!

Finding Salvation at the Dairy Queen 

This book was an unexpected gem that I came across and loved. This is another cute coming of age story of a young lady who loses her mother and lives her life as the daughter of the town pastor.  Through her life, she wants nothing more than to experience life outside of the tiny town of Ringgold where she lives. She ponders all of these things once a week while enjoying ice cream at the Dairy Queen.  This book is a very fun story with a great message at the end. Another one that I have given 5 stars!
