My Bookshelf: Summer Reading List

Okay so I know this post is LONG overdue, but that’s because I haven’t been embracing my favorite summertime pastime this year…lounging by the pool and reading a great book in the sunshine. Every year I look forward to weekends spent at my family’s country club where I can escape from the craziness of life (or claustrophobia in NYC!) and unwind. In my iPhone I have an ever growing list of books that I cannot wait to read. Some have been on this list for quite sometime and I cannot wait to finally crack them open. Since technically summer is more than halfway over (SCARY!) I seriously need to get started! And by that I mean plan a beach trip ASAP!


Here are my top picks from my ever growing “Books To Read” list…

The Husband’s Secret – Liane Moriarty

Big Little Lies – Liane Moriarty

Me Before You – Jojo Moyes

Leave Your Mark – Aliza Licht

Paper Towns – John Green

Not That Kind of Girl – Lena Dunham

The Knockoff – Lucy Sykes

The Vacationers – Emma Straub

Go Set a Watchman – Harper Lee

Primates of Park Avenue: A Memoir – Wednesday Martin

In The Unlikely Event – Judy Blume

Add one or all these options to your beach bag but before you do, leave your own book recommendation below!

  1. Paper Towns is SO GOOD!!! Perhaps my favorite John Green book that I’ve read so far! READ THIS PRONTO. Then call me and we can book club about it because I loved it, haha. They also did a fantastic job with the movie adaptation! πŸ™‚

    Also, just out of curiosity, what are your feelings on the Harper Lee controversy surrounding Go Set a Watchman? I’m no expert on it, but what I’ve read about how the book came to be released have left me feeling uneasy about the situation. I’d be interested to hear your opinion on it if you have one!

    • I cant wait to read Paper Towns! It will actually be my first John Green book *gasp*! I was supposed to see the movie the other day but something came up, so maybe I will make a trip this weekend! Also, I’ve definitely heard some controversy over Harper Lee’s new book. I think I want to reread To Kill a Mockingbird and then read Go Set a Watchman. That way the first book is fresh in my mind. But I have heard that Atticus is not exactly as admirable of a character in Go Set a Watchman. I definitely want to read it though! πŸ™‚
