When I was a wee-little-tot, summers would be the perfect time to read all day long without having any other cares in the world. Now that I’m an adult (most of the time) I have other real life things to deal with during the summer…. like work.
My Goodreads “to-read” bookshelf is getting virtually stacked up to the brim with books I’ve come across that I want to read. This summer I’m not going to let my day job interfere with reading anything and everything I find appealing :)
Here are my first five books I want to tackle this summer, ideally on a beach with a cold drink in my hand and the boyfriend next to me!
What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty is a great holiday read, perfect metro commute book, or just an easy book to keep by your bed and pick up when you have a few spare minutes before falling to sleep at night. Yes, it’s more of a “chick lit” book, but sometimes those are refreshing after reading something heavier (aka Unbroken).
I found this book on a “must read” list, and finally it was one that held true to the list title (unlike this one…). This book is an easy read with hysterical rants. I actually felt I came away with a new outlook on life (a small change, but still).
This was the most recent book selected for a book club I belong to in DC (aka the Beltway Book Club). With a diverse group of women from the age of 22 to 33, it can sometimes be difficult to find a book that appeals to all members.
Liane Moriarty was the author of a previous novel our club read, The Husband’s Secret. After an overall enjoyable read, we decided to try another one of her books.
