Lovely Finds : My Summer Reading List

ABD picnic and reading the book, The Nest


Summer Reading List

I love when Summer rolls around and the Summer novels start getting released! I’m hoping this season I will get the chance to dive back into reading. I know I’ve mentioned many times before that I am a loyal Audible subscriber and listen to books pretty much all day every day, but during the summer I like to ACTUALLY sit down and read a book, even if it is just on a plane!

Below are SIX books that I am already reading or that are on my “Summer Reads List”! What are on yours? I am always looking for a new book, so I’m dying to hear what you’ve got your nose in this Summer!


The Nest Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney and Cynthia D'Apriz Sweeney
Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld

The Nest  // Eligible


The Nest: I am reading this one now, so far so good! I am only on chapter 4. 

Eligible: I just finished this book and at first I thought, I can’t stand this, but I ended up really getting into the story line towards the middle of the book!! 


Emma: A Modern Retelling by Alexander McCall Smith
The Summer Before The War by Helen Simonson

Emma // The Summer Before the War


Emma: I have a feeling I’m really going to like this one!

The Summer Before the War:  The cover has me hooked. 



The After Party by Anton DiSclafani
The Assistants, A Novel by Camille Perri

The After Party // The Assistants


The After Party: I love any good After Party, so this feels like it’s going to be a winner!

The Assistants: For some reason I am always fascinated by books about assistants… don’t ask me why! 


Okay, now it’s your turn… what are you reading?

    I am currently reading Dark Places. I loved Sharp Objects so I am hoping this is as good as Sharp Objects. I also just finished Me before You and After you.

    I just started All the Light We Cannot See and recently finished The Husband’s Secret. Really good! I read it because I saw that Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman were going to star in the show!!
