My 6 Favorite Summer Beach Reads

I’ve always been an avid reader, and especially so in the summer!  I love nothing more than downloading my favorite books to my iPhone, laying on my couch and just really engrossing myself in a good book…don’t you guys agree?  The great part about reading on your iPhone is that you literally always have a good book with you; that means, even if you’re waiting in line for something, or heading to the beach last minute, you are always ready to go!  Here are six of my summer 2017 favorites, all available on Kindle, of course :)

The RegularsI actually saw this book while browsing Amazon and was drawn in by the super cute cover!  This book is charming and feisty, and I really love the relationship between Evie, Krista and Willow (all best friends), who are simply just trying to make it through their twenties in New York…and, of course, there’s some magic involved.

The Rules Do Not Apply: This book is a little heavier than I expected, but I still really LOVED it.  The deeply moving story is all about a woman who is overcoming dramatic loss while trying to find herself in the aftermath.  You’ll definitely laugh, cry and everything in between but I can’ recommend this book enough!  I think the book’s description is enough of a tease…”When Ariel Levy left for a reporting trip to Mongolia in 2012, she was pregnant, married, financially secure, and successful on her own terms. A month later, none of that was true.”

Romancing The Throne: If you’re intrigued by the world of British royalty, you will die for this book!  It’s a story about two sisters in England (Libby and Charlotte) and one of the sister’s ends up dating the Prince!  Think Kate and Pippa Middleton and you will get everything.  There’s high school boy drama, sister drama and tons of royalty scoop, which really is just plain fun.

One Day We’ll All Be Dead and None of This Will Matter: You will literally laugh out loud while reading this book, seriously!  The writer, Scaachi Koul, a culture writer for Buzzfeed, tells us stories about growing up in the United States as a daughter of Indian immigrants.  The tales are hilarious and are told with an amazing sharpness that never every writer has.

The Assistants: This book is MADE for the beach.  It’s breezy and a fun read about the plight of how New York City assistants have to battle their way up the work ladder.  If you’re new to the workforce and maybe feel a little under-appreciated sometimes, this book is for you.

A New Model: What Confidence, Beauty, and Power Really Look Like: If you love a good memoir, you will love Ashley Graham’s stories of beauty and what it felt like to be the first size 14 model to appear on the front of Sports Illustrated!  In this collection of insightful, provocative essays illustrated with a dozen photos, Ashley shares her perspective on how ideas around body image are evolving—and how we still have work to do; the fun—and stress—of a career in the fashion world; her life before modeling; and her path to accepting her size without limiting her dreams—defying rigid industry standards and naysayers who told her it couldn’t be done.
