Spring Break is here and I am loving these new releases just in time to throw in your beach bag (or in my case, hospital bag – haha). I rounded up a few spring break books that have (mostly) been released in the last couple of months and have great ratings! I am hoping to read some of these this year and a couple of them are from my 19 books to read in 2019 post, but some are new to my blog! After reading the synopsis of each book, these all sounded so good and like great options for a spring break trip!
This is one of my most popular posts every year and I absolutely love putting it together for 2 reasons. 1. Because it makes me research new books releasing this year and some old titles I may have missed out on and 2. Because it gets me so excited to read again! I didn’t do a great job of reading last year as I mentioned in this post, but I am hoping to turn that around. I see many nursing sessions and summer travels in my future, so I plan to take advantage of that time to read. I also recently discovered audio books… you mean that’s been a thing? Well, not to me. I am as loyal as they come to the real thing. I love books, but my lifestyle tells me audio books are the only way I’m getting all of these read this year. So, here we go! 19 books (or more) to read in 2019…
Over the last few weeks, I’ve been in search for the best new books to read this fall! I’m so excited about every single one of these that have recently released or will be over the next couple of weeks! These are some of my very favorite authors and I am probably most excited to read Kate Morton’s newest book that just came out last week! I got it in the mail over the weekend and am so excited to dive in as she is by far one of my favorite authors. I’ve read all of her books and they are all amazing and leave me stunned every time. She is amazing at fooling you and then fooling you again until you are so confused as to who the villain is until the end. It is truly fun and exciting to read a book by her.
Many of these are based on real people or they are spinoffs from older classics and you guys know how I love my classics! Liane Moriarty also has a book coming out in a couple of weeks that I am so excited to read. She is another favorite of mine (who wrote What Alice Forgot).
You guys know how much I love putting book lists together and putting this one together over the last couple of days has been so awesome. I literally added all of these (and then some) to my list of books to read – but, who am I kidding? I’ll probably not get to half of them. Ha! These sounded so good and I wanted to put together new releases that sounded like the perfect summer vacation reads or front-porch swingin’ kind of books. So, here are my books to read this summer! I hope you enjoy and please let me know if you read any/ have already read them. I want to hear what you think!
Spring Break is the perfect excuse to sleep in (if you don’t have kids) and read as much as you want to or catch up on books you’ve been lingering on forever. I always take advantage of time in the car or when the kids are napping to dive into a good novel. I’ve listed some great vacation books below: some I have read, some are new releases!
This continues to be one of my favorite posts to write every year and one of my top-performing posts as well, which means you guys love it, too! That makes me so happy and makes it that much more fun to put together! Last year I did not have a lot of time to read. If I’m being honest, I only finished one book all year. Pathetic. So, this year, I have already cracked the books, done my research and put together this list of books you simply must read this year! Cheers to reading ALL the books in 2018!
I just started First Comes Love by Emily Giffin. It is so good so far and I am falling in love with the characters. I started it last year, but life and kids happened, so I put it down and never picked it back up. I started it again over the weekend and I love it! So, I am adding it to my list. She is, after all, one of my favorite authors.
I have not had as much time to read lately as I would like to, but reading still remains my favorite past time. I have been getting lots of questions about what I’m reading and what’s on my reading list, so I thought it would be fun to share that with y’all today. If I had more time to read right now, these are the books that would be at the top of my list to read before the summer ends. In fact, I am about half way through these first two books right now and they are so good! …
I think this is one of my favorite posts of the year. Why? Well, I LOVE to read. It has always been my favorite pass time. Getting lost in a good book is a great escape from the hustle and bustle of the every day. After a lot of perusing the new books releasing this year, I have pulled out the ones I am most looking forward to reading! Also, a few old titles to catch up on if you haven’t read them yet.
I’ll be honest, when I was looking at last year’s post: 16 Books to Read in 2016, I realized I didn’t even read half of the titles I had planned on. Of course, we also weren’t exactly planning on having another baby this past year, either. Life sure is funny that way. This year, maybe I will have more time to read and travel. I can normally finish a book when we are road tripping some place and I am planning to travel a good bit more with our family this year.
I love to read, but I haven’t had a lot of time to dive into books this year. With the arrival of our new baby and moving, I feel like I won’t have a lot of time to read before the new year, but I am going to really put forth effort. It truly is my favorite pastime and I have always enjoyed reading. Here are a few holiday-related and non-holiday books to add to your reading calendar this month!
The Weekeners by Mary Kay Andrews
Synopsis from Goodreads: Some people stay all summer long on the idyllic island of Belle Isle, North Carolina. Others come only for the weekends-and the mix between the regulars and “the weekenders” can sometimes make the sparks fly. Riley Griggs has a season of good times with friends and family ahead of her on Belle Isle when things take an unexpected turn. While waiting for her husband to arrive on the ferry one Friday afternoon, Riley is confronted by a process server who thrusts papers into her hand. And her husband is nowhere to be found.
So she turns to her island friends for help and support, but it turns out that each of them has their own secrets, and the clock is ticking as the mystery deepens…in a murderous way. Cocktail parties aside, Riley must find a way to investigate the secrets of Belle Island, the husband she might not really know, and the summer that could change everything.
Told with Mary Kay Andrews’ trademark blend of humor and warmth, and with characters and a setting that you can’t help but fall for, The Weekenders is the perfect summer escape.
