Summer 2019 Reading List.
It’s here, it’s here! My summer 2019 reading list is here just in time for the unofficial start of summer and I could NOT be more excited.
Give me a good book on a hot summer day and I want nothing else. Except maybe a perfect caprese salad and grilled corn. And a chilled glass of rosé. But you get it!
This is one of my favorite posts to do all year. It’s truly made up of the books I want to read – after a few months of stalking upcoming summer releases and what not, and after compiling a HUGE list in google docs that Lacy and I go over and over and over, these 25 books below are what I’m looking forward to the most.
Also! If you’re new around here, you should know that I’m a crazy unapologetic certified fan of most types of women’s fiction (and yes of course chick-lit!). Light, fun, beachy reads are my fave. I’m not super into anything that resembles a harlequin romance. I read to escape, to get lost in the story, to feel like the characters are my friends. And I actually love the day after I finish a great book and can’t even stand to start a new one because I’m mourning my new (character) friends.
I know some of you get me!
I don’t want to read super sad or scary or depressing books, no matter how great they are. Occasionally there is an exception or two, and when there is I have to read about 45 happy books after it to counteract the one. Some thrillers are okay, just depends on my mood. And if I’m reading at night.
So, these are what I’ve picked down below! This year, I organized the list by release date. Cue all the exclamation points. I get so excited to read a certain book, then hate when I click on it and see it doesn’t come out for another month. This way, you can work your way down the list. I’ll be talking about the books again in Summer Fridays this year, which start in June.
[As a side note, the ONLY book I’ve read on this list so far is Daisy Jones! I love this book so much and my mom just finished it and loved it too. It’s amazing!]
I can’t WAIT to hear your recommendations in the comments, what you’re reading now and what’s on your list!
