Summer Reading

Ahh, nothing says summer time like sipping a cold beverage out on the lake, by the pool, or with my toes in the sand and a good book in hand!

Shane and I aren't taking any big vacations this summer, since we're going on a week long cruise in November. I also just started a new job, so I'm back to square one with vacation time. With that being said, we're all about the "mini-vacations" and "staycations" this summer. We're currently  hitting record high temps and as long as I'm by some form of water with the least amount of clothing that's publicly acceptable, I'm happy!

We've been taking full advantage of hanging out at different places, and i've had some pretty good summer books to help me relax.

The first, is the ever popular 50 Shades Of Grey series. For all of you out there who are skeptical and want to call it porn, well pshhhhh. It's an AWESOME series! Yes, there are some, ahem, parts that make you a little flushed reading it, but it's good, trust me!

After reading the 50 Shades series, I picked up the latest book by one of my favorite authors, Kate White (also the editor in chief for Cosmopolitan), titled So Pretty It Hurts. White writes lighthearted mysteries and stories about uptown NYC characters. They're really quick and easy reads, and like I said... super lighthearted. The perfect book to read on those lazy days or when you just want to get lost in a fun little mystery or story.

I have a few more books on my reading list for this summer including:
The Hunger Games Trilogy (I know, I know, I am late to the game!)
The Sixes (another Kate White novel)
Low Country Summer by Dorothea Benton Frank (I saw this on my friend Sarah's recommendations, and decided to try it out!)

Do you all get in reading moods like me during the summer? What books do you recommend?

  1. How did we not talk about books the other night?!?! I just started 50 Shades of Grey and I'm excited to see what all the hype is about. I've never read a Kate White novel but I'll add it to my list. And yes you need to read at least the first Hunger Games and anything by Dorothea Benton Frank is awesome.
