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!
I probably won’t have as much time for my summer reading this year, but I have picked out a few of the books I am determined to read on the beach this summer!
Summer at Little Beach Street Bakery by Jenny Colgan
The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan
Summer Secrets by Jane Green
Love from Paris by Alexandra Potter (Out July 30th)
Afternoon Tea at the Sunflower Cafe by Milly Johnson
Royal Wedding by Meg Cabbott
The Coincidence of Coconut Cake by Amy Reichert
French Coast by Anita Hughes
Eight Hundred Grapes by Laura Dave
If I Could Turn Back Time by Beth Harbison
Who Do You Love by Jennifer Weiner
The Best Of Enemies by Jen Lancaster
I’ve thought long and hard about the books I wanted to include in my summer reading list. I only included books that I have read before because I want to be able to recommend good books that won’t be a waste of your time. I love light reads while laying by the pool or on the beach baking in the sun, so if you’re looking for something with more depth, you may be better off reading Crime and Punishment rather than the following list. If you are in the market for a laid back easy “beach book,” this is for you! I don’t mean to imply that these books have no depth because some of them do, but they are easy and quick to read. Let’s get to it, shall we?
The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton
The One and Only by Emily Giffin
The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty
The Girl You Left Behind by Jojo Moyes
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
Meet Me At The Cupcake Cafe by Jenny Colgan
Lost Lake by Sarah Addison Allen
Then Came You by Jennifer Weiner
Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah
