As summer quickly approaches it seems like all I want to do is find a sunny spot to settle in with a good book! Here are my top 5 must reads on my summer reading list:
The Silent Sister by Diane Chamberlain- This mystery novel has received great reviews and will be the perfect summer page turner!
“In The Silent Sister, Riley MacPherson has spent her entire life believing that her older sister Lisa committed suicide as a teenager. Now, over twenty years later, her father has passed away and she’s in New Bern, North Carolina cleaning out his house when she finds evidence to the contrary. Lisa is alive. Alive and living under a new identity. But why exactly was she on the run all those years ago, and what secrets are being kept now?”
The Best Day of Someone Else’s Life by Kerry Reichs- Sometimes you just need a fun chick lit book to indulge in while laying on the beach and this one seems like a perfect choice!
“Eleven weddings in eighteen months would send any sane woman either over the edge or scurrying for the altar. But as reality separates from illusion, Vi learns that letting go of someone else’s story to write your own may be harder than buying the myth, but just might help her make the right choices for herself.”
Better Than Before: Mastering the Habits of our Everyday Lives by Gretchen Rubin – I always like to mix in an inspirational self help book and after reading one of Rubin’s other books, “The Happiness Project” I can’t wait to see what I can learn from this one!
“The author of the blockbuster New York Times bestsellers, The Happiness Project and Happier at Home, tackles the critical question: How do we change? Gretchen Rubin’s answer: through habits. Habits are the invisible architecture of everyday life. It takes work to make a habit, but once that habit is set, we can harness the energy of habits to build happier, stronger, more productive lives.”
All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr – I’m a bit behind the curve with this one. If you’re like me and haven’t read this yet, you need to add this one to your list right now! This New York Times bestseller seems to be on all the must read lists!
“From the highly acclaimed, multiple award-winning Anthony Doerr, the beautiful, stunningly ambitious instant New York Times bestseller about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II.”
