When Summer started I made it a point to start reading again. I used to read all the time years ago and started missing it a lot! Realizing I had a little more time to read I started making a Summer reading bag to take a long with me when I was outdoors enjoying the Summer weather.

Just recently I was a sent a copy of Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris. Is it the perfect marriage or the perfect lie? With the book being a new gripping psychological thriller I couldn’t wait to dive right in. Behind Closed Doors quickly became the new book in my Summer reading bag.

The chapters bounce back and forth between present and past and I found my heart pounding faster not knowing what was going to happen next. 

The story is about a wealthy lawyer named Jack and his wife Grace. Grace has a sister with Down Syndrome that will soon be moving in with the both of them and both Jack and Grace are delighted that she will be living with them.

I of course don’t want to ruin this book for you but all I can say was I was on the edge of my seat per say until the very end!!

    I do not have a summer reading bag but this is such a good idea, might have t get myself a fall reading bag, I need more books in my life!

  • Garf

    I always have sunglasses and lotion in my purse during the summer season.

  • Robin Rue

    This book looks like it is a page turner. I need to pick up a copy!

  • Wildish Jess

    I use to read quite a bit but I honestly can’t remember the last time I was able to sit down and dive into a book.

  • Chubskulit Rose

    I have so many books here to read but haven’t had the time to. Maybe when all of my stuff are put in place in the new house that I can start reading again.

  • Amanda Love

    A reading bag is an amazing idea especially if you’re planning a trip to the beach! I’m sure the book is lovely and it would be nice to be able to read it!

  • Mimi Green

    I like the idea of a summer reading bag. Yours is cute and bold. I’ve been reading more but don’t have a cute bag.

  • Jenn

    One my favorite way sot relax during the summer is to sit in the shade and read. I always take along water, and fresh fruit.

  • Bella

    This sounds like a great read! I am not reading anything at the moment but I might pick this one up.

  • Amanda Tempel

    I usually read in the comfort of my own home, so I’ve never made a reading bag before, but it sounds like a great idea for beach-goers, or people who like lounging.

  • Kathleen Kennedy-Leon

    perfect timing! I am going away for a much needed vacation with my husband as a second honeymoon and love love love to read-so Behind Closed Doors will be going on the list and be in my beach bag!

  • Sarah

    I wish I had time to get more reading done, love that you are having something to do that you enjoy. I am glad you shared your Summer reading bag with us!

  • Pam

    Love the summer reading bag idea! I usually just stuff a book that I want to finish in my purse and pull it out when I have some free time.

  • Lisa Jones

    This Really Sounds Like A Very Interesting Book I Can Get Into. I Must Buy To Read When I Get A Free Moment Thank You!

  • Liz Mays

    This sounds like an awesome summer read. I love thrillers like that. I’ve been looking for a new one.

  • lisa

    This book sounds awesome! I have been reading books from the Rizzoli and Isles series and I love them.

  • Jenn @ EngineerMommy

    I don’t have a summer reading bag, but now I definitely want one. I will definitely have to check out this book- it sounds like a fabulous read!

  • Alli Smith

    I remember going months without reading when my kids were growing up. Now that they have all flown the nest, I read every chance I get. I exclusively use my e-reader now and I was the one who said I’d never do it. I’ve got to download “Behind Closed Doors.” It sounds like a good one.
