2016 Summer Reading List!



I have recently pulled out of a book funk and am so excited to read some awesome books this Summer. I went to the library and WENT TO TOWN. I have been asking around for recommendations and here's what I've come up with for my Summer Reading List. I hope to tackle as many as I can this Summer. I'll come back and update this post with my reviews of the books.


This was such a great book! I would qualify it as my second favorite John Green book (after The Fault in Our Stars). I had read two of his others, Searching for Alaska and Paper Towns, and did not love them. The characters were very similar and neither of them set right with me by the end. An Abundance of Katherines was different. He still has the funny best friend character (WHICH I LOVE and laugh at just like he was my own best friend). I love the premise of a (former) child prodigy having a "type" of girls that he dates... and the type being they have the same name. It was a fun great read to start my Summer!




This is a National Bestseller and comes highly recommended. 




I am so late to the party on this one. But I've never seen the movie either and I know a lot of people who love Bridget Jones, so here I decided to give it a shot!




For years friends have told me to read this book and I am so glad I finally got to. This is a wonderful memoir about motherhood. I laughed and cried. I really feel like Melanie Shankle and I would be best friends in real life. But she already has a best friend and I have my own people too. Still, if we ever met in real life, we would make room for each other, I just know it. There were more than ten times (I lost count) that I had the thought "Is it considered plagiarism if someone climbs inside your head and copies your exact thoughts and then publishes them into a book claiming the thoughts as their own?" Seriously. So many relatable accounts of motherhood. If you are a mother, you should read this book. It will make you laugh, and will encourage you, and make you feel like you are not alone.

Looks like a fun Summer read and is also a Bestseller!




I have heard the Elin Hilderbrand books are really fun to read in the Summer because they all take place in Nantucket. There are several of hers I want to read, but this is one that my library had in stock so I decided to start with it! 




This is the first book in a series. I have heard about this series for a while and am curious to see what it will be like! 


What are you reading this Summer? Anything you think I should add to this list?
