Summer Reading List

I love reading. It’s one of my favorite ways to wind down from the day. A typical Pisces, I get revived from escaping into another world entirely.

I recently started reading on our mini iPad instead of buying books. Simply because I can’t seem to figure out what to do with the books I have finished. I have them stuffed in drawers and in closets. So to save space and waste, I have started reading on the iPad. Though I do miss the tactile experience of reading an actual book…so we’ll see how long that lasts.

This summer I want to read at least 6 books. That is 2 books a month. Right now, I read about a book a month.  So this will be stepping up my speed quite a bit.

Below are the books I am looking to conquer, learn from, and experience in the next few months:

  1. The Lying Game by Ruth Ware – I loved The Woman in Cabin 10 and In a Dark, Dark Wood, so I’m pretty sure I’ll love this one too. If you’re into psychological thrillers (think Gone Girl) then you’ll love this author.
  2. Crushing It by Gary Vaynerchuk – Just about every blogger and entrepreneur I follow has been raving about this book. I try to be into more business minded material, but it’s really difficult for me. So here is me trying something different!
  3. Fitness Junkie by Lucy Sykes and Jo Piazzarecommended by fellow blogger Mackenzie Horan! I’ve heard that it is very funny and is a much lighter load than the rest on this list.
  4. The Law of Attraction by Esther and Jerry Hicks – I’ve had this book sitting on my nightstand since last year, so I finally want to finish it.
  5. 1776 by Davidl McCullough – Another one that has been sitting on my nightstand collecting dust! I started it immediately after watching an American Revolution mini-series, so it was kind of overkill. Now that it has been a while, I am ready to dive into this piece of art.
  6. The Favorite Sister by Jessica Knoll – I LOVED her first book (The Luckiest Girl Alive) so to say that I am excited about this release is an understatement.

 

What is on your reading list for the summer?
