2016 Summer Reading List

Laying on the beach, or in the backyard, with a good book is necessary part of summer. So as we’re still in the early days of July, I figured it’s not too late to share what I’ll be reading this summer, along with some of my personal favorite beach reads.

Love And Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch - This love story about a couple in Italy is sure to make you say “awwww” at least once this summer. Plus, who doesn’t love gelato?

The Girls by Emma Cline - I’m sure this has made it to the top of most people’s summer reading lists by now. Think California, 1960’s, a little bit of violence, and a whole lot of teenage angst. Based loosely on the Charles Manson Cult, this book is definitely intriguing.

Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi - Another highly anticipated book to read summer, Homegoing follows two half-sisters in Ghana; Effia who is married off to an englishman, and Esi who is imprisoned and shipped to America to be sold into slavery.

Alice & Oliver by Charles Bock - A couple faced with a new child and a cancer diagnosis, this story is sure to make you feel all the feels. If you tend to cry at the littlest thing (like me), I recommend saving this one for when you’re at home curled up with some tissues.

Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty - I’m sure you’re heard me rave about Moriarty’s other novels, so when I heard this book was coming out I was super excited. And while I haven’t read it yet, it is at the top of my list. 3 couples, 3 kids, a dog, and a barbecue. What could go wrong? From the looks of the book - a lot.

The Weekenders by Mary Kay Andrews - What starts off as a normal summer goes terribly wrong when a husband goes missing and the island’s secrets come to light. This is the perfect addition to any beach bag.

So there you have it! The ultimate summer reading list. With a little bit of everythibg, this list is sure to keep you busy and intrigued all summer! As always, please comment any other books you’re reading this summer and I’ll be sure to check them out!
