2016 Summer Reading List

Summer2016reads

So I know Summer is half way done but I still have some books that I really want to read before it ends. One of my goals over the past few months is to read more and I am determined to make it happen. Here are the list of books I hope to read soon.

You Are a Badass// ย This was a must read book that was recommendedย when I attended Thrive blog conference earlier this year. It’s all about kicking self belief to the curb and believing in yourself.

Truly Madly Guilty// I have become a huge fan of Liane Moriarty since reading The Husbands Secret. She keeps you intrigued and guessing. I am sure this book will be no different. This book does not come out until later this month, so it will be one that I will probably read last.

I Had a Nice Time And Other Lies// One of my friends suggested this book because she loved the Nice Is Just A Place in France. She knows how my humor is silly, so she said this book would be perfect for me to read. I am thinking it will make for a good read while I am at the beach relaxing.

Girl Code// Seeing that I am all about being a #Girl Boss this book is highly recommended by a lot of other #GirlBosses. It’s all about becoming a better woman and building confidence in yourself.

After You// I am currently reading Me Before You and I am loving it. So I have to know what happens after it, so it only makes sense to read After You.

Sharp Objects// I have heard really great things about this book from friends and other bloggers. I really enjoyed reading Gone Girl (though it was way out there), so I expect that this should be a good book as well.

I have a lot more books that I want to read but I figured I would start off small in hopes that I can even read these 6 books. Do you have any good book recommendations? If so leave them down in the comments below.

  2. I really liked Sharp Objects. I think I liked it more than Gone Girl. I also loved After You; it was my favorite of the two books. If you like Jojo Moyes you should check out The Girl You Left Behind. It’s my favorite of the books of hers that I’ve read. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m adding a bunch of these to my to-read list. Thanks for the recommendations! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. I need to add a lot of these to my reading list! I love #Girlboss and have been wanting similar books! You are a Badass and Girl Code sound perfect! I always get a lot of blogging inspiration reading books like these on the beach or by the pool!

      I tried reading #GirlBoss before and I could not finish it. I am going to try to read it again and see if I like it better. Leave Your Mark is also a really great book to read!

    These look great! I’m currently reading Dark Places by Gillian Flynn and it’s good so far (though creepy, but that’s to be expected I think). I’ve been putting off Me Before You because I don’t think I can handle the cry fest!

    • sweetteaandhydrangeas wrote:

      Falon I also want to read Dark Places. It’s on my book shelf as we speak. I am sure that it is creepy but I know it’s probably really good. I have been reading Me Before You and I haven’t gotten to the cry fest yet. I have heard it’s a complete tear jerker though.

    I Had a Nice Time sounds like it would be a fun read – I may have to look in to that one. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great choices! I’m still needing to read Me Before You, and I loved the Big Little Lies, also by Moriarty. Gone Girl definitely was a page turner, so I’m sure that will be a great read too.

    • sweetteaandhydrangeas wrote:

      Thank You Shann! I know you will love Me Before You! Big Little Lies was so good. Have you read the Husbands Secret? Gone Girl was wild. If you read any of these books let me know how you like them.

      Emily her books are really good! I have read two so far. She keeps you guessing and what you think will happen, is complete opposite of what does actually happen.
