2022 summer reading list

This is one of my favorite days of the year – sharing my summer reading list!

I am SO excited about this summer’s books. I can’t wait to dive in. There are many here that I’ve already read (you can see my reading lists here) and the ones to come are just so good. I have some books downloaded on my kindle and a pile to be read that is huge. YESSSS. This is enormous and it’s one I will come to all year for suggestions! I’ll also add a few on as I read more and get your suggestions.

The first half of the list is full of books that are already released, with the second half in order by release date. There are some weeks where I just can’t even wait for a new release. I have 99% of the books linked below to bookshop.org. If you are able to purchase the books through bookshop, it would mean so much to me! Bookshop supports YOUR local independent bookstore. To me, bookstores are MAGICAL. I walk in and instantly feel like I’m in a Nancy Meyers movie and could stay there all day.

If you prefer to purchase on amazon, I’ve also made a 2022 summer reading list shop here for easy access.

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 #1 choice. I’m not super into anything that resembles a harlequin romance. I do love to listen to memoirs and autobiographies on audible. 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. It’s the best worst feeling.

I can’t WAIT to hear your recommendations in the comments, what you’re reading now and what’s on your list!
