Happy 4th of July, y’all!
I don’t know about you, but I’m spending the long weekend (actually the entire week) at the beach and there is nothing I love more than a sunny beach day with a good book. In case you are vaca-ing this week too, I’ve rounded up the list of books I’m hoping to read this summer.
Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld– When I saw Sittenfeld had a new book coming out, I was super excited as I’ve liked her prior ones. Once I knew it was a modern retelling of one of my all-time faves, Pride & Prejudice, I couldn’t wait to pick it up.
Pretty Baby by Mary Kubica-My mom recommended this one after we both loved Kubica’s The Good Girl. This was the first book I checked off my list and it did not disappoint. If you are a fan of Gone Girl/Girl On The Train type books, you should add this to your list.
In The Name of Gucci by Patricia Gucci- Because every summer needs at least one fashion related read, this one about Aldo Gucci as told by his daughter is on my list.
The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney- This book is on lots of summer reading lists I’ve seen this summer and I’m equally intrigued. It’s about four adult siblings, their trust fund and family drama. Sounds like a summer read if you ask me.
Sweetbitter by Stephanie Danler- A coming-of-age novel set in New York City and in the city’s restaurant scene, this summer bestseller looks like a great read.
Cravings by Chrissy Teigen- Okay, so maybe it isn’t an actual “read”, but now that we are in our new place, I want to dive into this cookbook and make some yummy eats this summer.
What’s on your summer reading list?
