Summer Reading List

Greetings from the West Coast! No, I haven't moved yet but I'm here for the week so posting may be a little spotty. That being said, Saturday was the first official day of Summer and I love to have a stack of books to dive into every summer. This summer, that stack is even bigger because I am going to be traveling most of July. What's on your reading list? Do tell!

 
 
1. "Fangirl" by Rainbow Rowell- My sister read this quirky coming of age story by the author of "Eleanor and Park" in one day and loved it.
 
2. "The Secret Life of Violet Grant" by Beatriz Williams - The Greenwich, CT native, Beatriz Williams, is at it again with her novel after one of my all-time favorite books "100 Summer." This story combines 1960's Manhattan with a 1910's German love story. Cannot wait to start!
 
3. "Cartwheel: A Novel" by Jennifer Dubois - This novel is reminiscent of the Amanda Knox trial with critics calling it "the next Gone Girl." I love mysteries and thrillers with strong female protagonists so I'm so excited to pick this one up.
 
4. "It Happened One Wedding" by Julie James- I love romance writer Julie James and this book was no exception. She writes light-hearted love stories usually set in Chicago, which I love. A total beach read.
 
5. "The Vactioners: A Novel" by Emma Straub - on the NYT Best Sellers list and one of the hot books for summer.
 
6. "One Lavender Ribbon" by Heather Burch - "Can a stack of long-hidden love letters from a WWII war hero inspire a heartbroken woman to love again?"

7. "The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair: A Novel" by Joel Dicker
