Leave Your Mark | The Girl On The Train | How to be Parisian Wherever You Are | The Defining Decade | Still AliceThrive

Ever since I was in middle school I made my own summer reading lists, it always helped keep my mind engaged while I was off from school. While that may not be the case anymore, I do want to strive to be a little more disconnected than usual this summer which means more reading and less perusing the news feed (s). I believe the best thing about reading is escapism, momentarily focusing on a life that is not your own. However, I’ve been meaning to get to a few books that I know could inspire me endlessly.  Here are a few of the books that I’ll definitely be getting to this summer!

Any other suggestions to add to the list?

    This is so helpful! I’m always looking for a new book to read and sometimes the vastness of a book store or Kindle store is just never ending and makes it really hard to pick something. Thanks for the suggestions! Happy Friday!

    These are great choices for a summer reading list. I have so many books I want to read, you’re inspiring me to compile a little summer reading list for myself!

    I always recommend any books by Kristin Hannah! She’s one of my all-time favorite authors. She’s similar to Nicholas Sparks but I think the plots are much better and not as predictable (and also not always just love stories!)

    The Girl on the Train is on my list! My own summer reading list is very tentative and changing, and I’m currently reading three books and hope to finish them before I “officially” start my list…I may need to add the rest of these to it as well; they all look great!
