Awhile back on Instagram I was asked, "What's on your summer reading list?" Well, today I thought it would be fun to share with you what books I've been getting lost in so far this summer! I do want to note, however, that I love reading but I'm not always the best at taking time the to read. I slightly blame this on college and grad school for burning me out, but now that I'm out of school, I'm enjoying getting back in the groove again. Anyways, onto the lineup ---
Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys
// I picked this book up on a whim after reading through a chapter or two while at Barnes & Noble one day. You may not know this about me, but I'm a BIG fan of anything set in the South (Gone With The Wind, ya'll), so the fact that this book was set in the South AND had a bit scandal between the pages made it the perfect easy (no pun intended!) read.
Love, Nina - A Nanny Writes Home by Nina Stibbe
// Ever since reading The Perks of Being A Wallfower in high school, I've been a fan of the diary-style writing. This book follows Nina, a 22-year-old nanny who moved to London to care for two very eccentric little boys. Their stories are shared through a stack of letters sent home to her sister, capturing each mundane and out of the ordinary moments the she has while wrapped up in this world of famous playwrights, mysterious happenings, and London in the 80's. I've yet to finish this yet, but I'm really enjoying all of the humor between the pages.
Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple
// I picked up this book before our trip to Kentucky last summer, as I was in need of a good read for our journey to and from. I instantly fell in love with the eccentric Mrs. Fox and her life in Seattle, and each page left me wondering where the story would take me next. I'll admit, I only finished about half this book at the time, but I plan on going back and reading it cover to cover.
Now that I've shared my list I wanna know, what's on yours?
