Summer Reading List

Wednesday, June 15, 2016
Yeah, I'm a sucker for a good beach read. I mean, who isn't? Isn't it everyone's dream to dig their toes deep into the sand and curl up into their beach chair with the ultimate read? Those are my #summergoals, for sure.

I'm keeping my summer reading list short and sweet this year. I've included recommendations from friends, books I've seen fellow bloggers reading, and I'm breaking out my all-time favorite book to re-read this summer.

Here's what I'll be reading this summer:

The Nest by Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney
There's certainly nothing new about a novel written about a dysfunctional family, but this one is full of lovable characters, and I, for one, am ever so curious what becomes of the four Plumb siblings once the youngest turns 40 and the inheritance is dispersed among them.

First Comes Love by Emily Giffin
This not-yet-released novel (out June 28th) is written by one of my favorite authors, and I cannot wait to dive into this one. I absolutely adored Something Borrowed and Something Blue, and I know this one will not disappoint.

The Vegetarian by Han Kang
This book sounds very interesting and slightly bizarre. A woman's nightmares drive her to become a vegetarian, but little does she know that her nightmares are her smallest problem.

On The Road by Jack Kerouac
Hands down, this book is my all-time favorite book. I can pick it up over and over again and read it as if it's my first time. Every few years I come back to it, and it never gets old. It's truly a classic, and if you've got wanderlust or just need an escape at the end of the day, open this book.

The Weekenders by Mary Kay Andrews
Oh, come on. So you've never chosen a book based on the cover? I'm guilty. This cover had me. A town's secrets come to light after a local goes missing. This one is a total beach read!

Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty
Three seemingly happy families aren't what they appear to be. This fictional novel examines how strong guilt can be and how what we don't say says more than what we do.

What's on your reading list this summer?
