My summer reading list: three books about America, and one about bridesicles

Ever since I figured out last year that no screentime for an hour before bed made it waaaay easier for me to fall asleep, I have been on a reading BINGE. Mostly fiction, mostly fun, and mostly AWESOME. This summer in particular I've been on a roll with some really great books, and figured I'd circle up with y'all to compare notes.

Oddly, three of the four books I've read recently have had "America" in the title, so evidently I'm on a patriotic theme. Come with me?
