Summer reads!

There’s a flurry of booklists out there helping you find your beach read. I’ve made my own list of books I want to check out during the summer. I have a solid three weeks of beach time that needs quality entertainment so I’ve packed a bunch and I’ll see how far I get! (Thank god for e-books or my suitcase would be seriously overweight!)

I’ve followed Reese Witherspoon’s book club for a while, but I’ve missed the last three books so I’ve added them to my summer list.

The Dry by Jane Harper

The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware

Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman

I also noted that Sarah Jessica Parker has teamed up with ALA (American Library Assosiation) and made a book club and I’ve added the very first pick to my summer reading list.

Also, Oprah announced another book Club Pick right before the summer that I added to my reading pile! img_7120
And a whole bunch that has come recommended, as gifts or by curiosity and has lived in my TBR pile and has made it into “try and read these during the summer” – pile.

Notes from a small island by Bill Bryson

(Because, come on, when is the perfect time for reading a travel memoir if not during summer travelling? And I was just in London myself and I felt draw to this one!)


The goldfinch by Donna Tartt

(I adored “The secret history” and how it was written, which is why I dare to take on the challenge of this brick! I also just found out that there is a movie in the works for this one!)

I’m starting with The Goldfinch which is undoubtedly the thickest of them all at over 800 pages and take it from there. I migh also add some along the way… I have a tendency to change my mind. So if you have any must reads, let me know!

Happy summer reading!
