6 NEW BOOKS I’M DYING TO READ THIS SUMMER

Well, it’s June, and I don’t know about you, but I always think of June 1st as the start of summer, June 21st be darned. I always read a lot more during the summer months. Whether it’s the warmer weather, the longer days, the sangria—I devour books this time of the year. I’ve been taking a bit of a break from writing, which is why I’ve been reading more than normal. However, my writing break is coming to an end soon and I have to be A LOT more picky about what I spend my free time reading.

As a little reminder to myself, and to hopefully introduce you all to some new books, I’ve compiled a list of six new books I’m dying to read this summer.

books i'm dying to read this summer

  • VOX BY CHRISTINA DALCHER—Set in an America where half the population has been silenced, VOX is the harrowing, unforgettable story of what one woman will do to protect herself and her daughter.
  • THE ASSISTANTS BY CAMILLE PERRI—a young Manhattanite’s embezzlement scam turns her into an unlikely advocate for the leagues of overeducated and underpaid assistants across the city.
  • YOU THINK IT, I’LL SAY IT BY CURTIS SITTENFELD—A suburban mother of two fantasizes about the downfall of an old friend whose wholesome lifestyle empire may or may not be built on a lie.

Expect to see these books pop up on my instagram over the next few months!

I’ve love to hear the books that you’re the most excited about, or if you’ve been lucky enough to read early copies of any of these six books, let me know what you thought.

June Reading List

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

 

After reading as much as I did in May I had a feeling that June wouldn’t be as plentiful. And I was right. Instead of reading this month I spent time traveling for work and trying (and failing) to make progress on my Finding Lily novel re-write. Not feeling sorry for myself though, no–that would be silly. (Hello sarcasm!)

What I read in June:

  • THE SEVEN HUSBANDS OF EVELYN HUGO by Taylor Jenkins Reid (BOTM) – I quite literally don’t have the words to describe how much I adored this novel. Go pick up a copy for yourself if you haven’t already.
  • SOMEBODY ELSE’S SKY BY JESSICA HAWKINS – Like the first in the series I read this book quickly, devouring it. Knowing I have to wait until October to read the final installment in the trilogy is torture.
  • SLIP OF THE TONGUE BY JESSICA HAWKINS – Ok, so I’ve been reading a lot of her work lately. It’s just what happens when you fall in love with an author. Like all her other books that I’ve read, this one did not disappoint.

In Progress

Here’s what I’m currently reading:
