2018 Summer Reading List!

May 24, 2018

I know so many of us start every year hoping to make reading more of a priority.  Summer is an excellent time to make that goal happen, because the days are longer and your kids are outside more.  It is a great time to invite friends over for a deck book club evening, or meet up poolside with all your littles and attempt to discuss some great reads.  I thought I’d share some book recommendations for the summer (some I’ve read, but some I’m reading!)

Pro Tip: Put them on hold at your lilbrary from home, and pick them up next time you’re there.  Don’t forget Audible will give you a free one month trial (I love listening to books, if you haven’t done it in a while, give it a second try.)  and check your library to see if they offer a digital screening option. 

Crazy Rich Asians– With the moving coming out mid summer, I urge ya’ll to read this one. It is sweetly romantic, HILARIOUS, subtly cultural, and beautifully written.

Fresh Off The Boat– You may have heard of the show, but did you know it is based off this hysterically accurate book?  I love how books can you give you a whole new perspective and this one does that while simultaneously laughing your ass off.

Digging In- Okay, this is on MY list to read this summer, it looks too cute.  I’ve fallen in love with gardening and how therapeutic it can be.

When Life Gives You Lululemons-  This is part of the Devil Wears Prada Series!  I’m so excited for this one to come out.

An American Marriage– My bestie and Oprah have recommended it so let’s just read it already.

Three Cups Of Tea- So, I started reading this book after buying it at a yard sale for a quarter.  I’d seen it all over the internet, but hadn’t been able to get a library copy.  WOWOWOWOWOWOW.  It is such a beautiful, poetic, book that has me feeling so inspired.  READ. IT.

I’m Still Here- a dear friend of mine suggested this book, and I’m waiting for it now at my library (it has over 70 holds so it must be good, ya’ll!) This is another book that I gather will be eye opening and informative.

Girl, Wash Your Face– If you’re wanting a little motivation to get something done.  Read this book.  It was so empowering!

This Is Me: Chrissy Metz (or Kate from This Is Us!) wrote a memoir, and ya’ll it is hella good.  I listened to it back on our trip, and I could relate so much to her.  She is funny and kind and I wish we could be real life best friends.

Before We Were Yours- I’m sharing this book because it was my favorite book I read in 2017.  I loved every second of it.  I intend to read every book Lisa Wingate has ever written in 2018.

    1. I am currently reading Water for Elephants, half way done, and it is pretty good so far. I would like to read Hidden Figures. I watched the movie and loved it. I usually read books before the movie and am disappointed with all that is left out, but I watched this movie before realizing it was a book.

    1. I’m intrigued by Girl, Wash Your Face! You know this upcoming season of our lives is going to take alllllll the motivation 💛

    1. Oh! “Before We Were Yours” is on my list to ready! And “Girl, Wash Your Face.” I’m reading “Caroline” right now though and it’s soooo good!

    1. I love silly books as a way to de-stress … loving Wedding Cake Murder – Hannah Swensen story line 😂

    1. I just finished reading The Woman In The Window and really enjoyed it! I like suspense and mystery reads, so it held my interest the whole way through.

    1. No One Ever Asked by Katie Ganshert was a recent favorite! Add it to your list!!

    1. I am SO ready to read ALL of these this summer after far too little book time in recent years.
