Happy first Friday of summer! The Style Me Bloggers are back today with a perfect topic for just such an occasion - our summer reading lists.
A day at the beach with a new book is my idea of heaven, and I ordered these six lovelies so I'll be ready when I head to vacation next month. Which can't come soon enough, let me tell you.
The Husband's Secret. I've only recently discovered Liane Moriarty, and I don't know where she's been all my life. I just finished What Alice Forgot, and it was so, so good. Her page turning books are the right mix of witty humor and intrigue.
The Martian. I actually ordered this for my husband, but I'll probably steal it from him first. I'm not usually a big fan of sci-fi, but the premise of an astronaut stranded on Mars is intriguing. Plus the movie is coming out in the fall starring Matt Damon, so I need to brush up on my space lingo.
The Rumor. This was recommended by my cousin, who was shocked that I had never read an Elin Hilderbrand book. She described it as "the perfect beach read about rich people behaving badly". What else could you want?
I Regret Nothing. I've been waiting impatiently for this to be released. I love every single thing Jen Lancaster writes, especially her "memoirs". I have to be careful where I read her books, because I spend the whole time laughing out loud and annoying those around me.
A Fine Romance. Candice Bergen is one of my favorite actresses and Murphy Brown is in my top five fave shows of all time. It's probably a little dated, but it was so well written and smart and you should watch it on Netflix. (Okay, so I just went to see if it's even on Netflix, and they only have Season One. What the what?) Anyway. This is Bergen's second autobiography, written thirty years later, and I know it's going to be so interesting.
The Dream Lover. Elizabeth Berg is another author that has been recently recommended to me. I can't wait to read this historical novel set in nineteenth century Paris.
And since we are the Style Me Bloggers, I must mention that Nordstrom's summer clearance sale is in full swing. This cute canvas tote would be perfect to carry all those books to the beach, and it's on sale for only $12.00.
