I’ve always been a reader, but lately I’ve embarked on a particularly bookish lifestyle and I can’t wait to sit by the pool (or in bed, for that matter) every weekend and make my way through my list of summer reads.
What are you reading? I never turn down a book recommendation.
This Is How: Proven Aid in Overcoming Shyness, Molestation, Fatness, Spinsterhood, Grief, Disease, Lushery, Decreptitude & More. For Young and Old Alike. by Augusten Burroughs – I love a good Augusten Burroughs book, but I’ve already been warned that this one is a far cry from his usual darkly jaunty stories.
The Fault in our Stars by John Green – Another tear-jerker. I’m pretty sure this is on just about everyone’s “to read” list this summer.
The Newlyweds by Nell Freudenberger – There are some harsh reviews for this book on Amazon and GoodReads. Which is kinda why I want to read it.I guess mail order brides can be quite polarizing.
An Uncommon Education by Elizabeth Percer – The description says that the book “captures the complicated ties of family, the bittersweet inevitability of loss, and the importance of learning to let go.” I, apparently, want to weep my way through my summer.
Seating Arrangements by Maggie Shipstead – Finally! Some fluff!
Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler - Because I’m curious what other explanation there could be besides “you’re a big fat jerk.”
