My Summer Reading List



Reading is one of my favorite past times. As a kid, I would get completely lost in books, and emerge hours later a changed person, with my eyes opened wider, a fuller heart, and my mind buzzing.

Unfortunately, I haven’t had as much time to read as I would like these past couple of months, curse you adult life!, but I’m making a promise to myself: I promise to make more time to read this summer.

In honor of this personal promise, I raided Target for some books I’ve been dying to read! I ended up with 5, which I think is a reasonable goal…heck, maybe I’ll breeze through these and be able to pick another 5! These are the titles are I’m starting with:

My Summer Reading List: 

  1. Big Magic//Elizabeth Gilbert
  2. #Girlboss//Sophia Amoruso
  3. You Are A Badass//Jen Sincero (Confession: I’ve read this one, but it was so. freaking. good, I want to read it again!)
  4. Rising Strong//Brene Brown
  5. The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up//Marie Kondo


I think you can see an over-arching theme in these 5 books; they’re all “self-help”/motivational, and while I love young adult fiction (Harry Potter nerd in the house!), and World War II non-fiction, these sorts of reads are exactly what I need in my life rift now.

So, what’s on your reading list? (Ted is working his way through the Game of Thrones series) And what else should I add to my list?!

    There are endless amounts of memiors I would recommend. Two of my all time top favorites are Mountains Beyond Mountains and Alive.

    Alive is an amazing read and I ready ot less than two days.

    For a tear jerker read You Before Me and After You. Both are so inspiring.

    I could list so many books. My next book I want to read is Born on the Fourth of Juy.

        Miss Molly, my pleasure and definitely read You Before Me and After You and Alive…those are the ones I would read first if you can…

        Aside from the books on your list, do you have any recommendations? I have You Are a Badass, and have been meaning to read it, but have struggled to pick it up, not sure why now.

          Definitely pick up You Are a Badass! It’s so empowering!
