When I hear the word “summer”, I instantly think of a few things. Sun, Swimming, Baseball and BOOKS! Y’all know there is nothing better than sitting poolside or on the lake with a big glass of iced tea and a great book. I’ve been having a lot of wonderful conversations lately with friends about what they’re reading and recommending, so I thought this would the perfect time to share my summer reading list with y’all! I am super excited about the books that have my name on them this summer. 🙂
Revenge Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger is first up on my list. I just started reading this book and am already in love after only about 50 pages. This is a sequel to The Devil Wears Prada- another great book and movie!
The Closer by Mariano Rivera is easily at the top of my list. I have so much respect for this man and his character, such a great role model. Can’t wait to learn more about his story!
Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling. This girl is seriously funny, she has had roles in The Office and now stars in The Mindy Project. Mindy writes this book about her life and advice- so great!
A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier by Ishmael Beah. I know this will be a hard read, but I am definitely looking forward to it. Ishmael was a child soldier and is now sharing his story with the world, I know this will be powerful.
The Next Best Thing by Jennifer Weiner. I love Jennifer’s books! They are always good beach reads. In The Next Best Thing, Jennifer writes about a girl who moves to Hollywood to chase her dreams while learning a lot along the way.
The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11 by Lawrence Wright. This bestselling book may be one of the books that I’m looking forward to getting into the most! Wright really dives into the history of Al-Qaeda and breaks it down over several decades.
And there you have it, some of my must reads for this summer! I am really looking forward to some relaxing days and evenings with these books in hand. I’m looking forward to adding more reads to the list! What are you reading? I’d love to check out your finds!
