Summer Reads

Summer is a great time to get in some good reading!!  Whether you’re on a boat, at the beach, or just swinging in you hammock in your backyard, it’s always a great idea to have a good book by your side!

Here’s some of my picks for summer reads:

1. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

My favorite book of all time!  It’s a classic, and if you haven’t read it already, this summer would be a great time to do that!

Description:  At the turn of eighteenth-century England, spirited Elizabeth Bennet copes with the suit of the snobbish Mr. Darcy while trying to sort out the romantic entanglements of two of her sisters, sweet and beautiful Jane and scatterbrained Lydia.”

2.  #GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso

The perfect book for all you aspiring fashionistas!!!  Read all about how to CEO of Nasty Gal got to where she is today!

Description:  #GIRLBOSS includes Sophia’s story, yet is infinitely bigger than Sophia. It’s deeply personal yet universal. Filled with brazen wake-up calls (“You are not a special snowflake”), cunning and frank observations (“Failure is your invention”), and behind-the-scenes stories from Nasty Gal’s meteoric rise, #GIRLBOSS covers a lot of ground. It proves that being successful isn’t about how popular you were in high school or where you went to college (if you went to college). Rather, success is about trusting your instincts and following your gut, knowing which rules to follow and which to break.”

3.  I Am Having So Much Fun Here Without You by Courtney Maum

Description:  In this reverse love story set in Paris and London, which Glamour hailed as one of the “10 Best Books to Add to Your Summer Reading List Right This Second,” a failed monogamist attempts to woo his wife back and to answer the question: Is it really possible to fall back in love with your spouse?”

4.  Friendship by Emily Gould

This book is so pivotal to growing up!!  It’s incredibly hard to keep the same friendships we had when we were younger in our adult years.  Beautifully written, and completely truthful.

Description:  Friendship, Emily Gould’s debut novel, traces the evolution of a friendship with humor and wry sympathy. Gould examines the relationship between two women who want to help each other but sometimes can’t help themselves; who want to make good decisions but sometimes fall prey to their own worst impulses; whose generous intentions are sometimes overwhelmed by petty concerns.

5.  The Arsonist by Sue Miller

The perfect mystery romance novel to get you through the summer!

Description:  From the best-selling author of While I Was Gone and The Senator’s Wife, a superb new novel about a family and a community tested when an arsonist begins setting fire to the homes of the summer people in a small New England town.”
