I love knowing what other people are currently reading and what is on their reading list. I’m really not one to go pick up a book unless it is recommend to me, whether that’s by an actual person or Amazon. Below is my summer reading list. It’s not lengthy, and they are all easy reads. This is partly because I just prefer easy reads in the summer, and partly because I’m supposed to have a wedding to plan and not much time on my hands. Everyone at the resort I’m getting married at is currently furloughed so I can’t do wedding planning, and this social distancing has given me a lot of time on my hands so I may add to it later in the season.
Love & Gelato I’m not really into “romance” novels but this one has great reviews and it takes place in Florence Italy. I spent a semester studying abroad in Florence so I’m sure this will be nostalgic on some level which is why I bought it.
Fielld’s Guide to Pharohs This book was just recently released in March and there was a lot of hype surrounding the release so I’m going to give it a go. The author is known for her murder mystery books so I don’t expect it to be dull and when it comes down to it, I’m really just looking to be entertained.
Where The Crawdads Sing This book is a New York Time Bestseller and it was part of Reese Witherspoon’s book club, that really tells you enough. I fell like last summer EVERYONE was reading it but I never got around to it, so I’m making is a priority this summer. Plus, it sounds like the type of book I would love.
The Women I Wanted to Be If I find that I lacked interest in all the other books, I know I’ll love this one. First of all, I’m a huge fan of Diane von Furstenburg. Secondly, I love an autobiography.
Sarong Party Girls This is one I started reading, and to be honest I don’t recommend it. I do find it interesting reading about a women I’m close in age with, but comes from a vastly different culture. The main character is a gold-digger which makes the book cringey at times.
