This upcoming August, during the long stretches of train travel, I hope to spend my time finishing up my summer reading list!

Tuesdays with Morrie



This novel tells the story of a retired college professor, who tells the story of his life and important lessons learned. As a twenty one year old on the cusp of graduation, I'm definitely seeking some advice on life, and can't wait to learn a little something new from Morrie's point of view.

I'm so excited to get started with this summer reading list, coupled with views of the Pacific Ocean or the Rocky Mountains! Have any suggestions? Feel free to comment below!
