Summer Reading List
Gone are the days of mandatory summer reading lists - thankfully! I have always enjoyed reading, but when I had to read a book that I didn't pick out, it was always a chore or bore! Since I love reading and have surprisingly read 4 AMAZING books in the past month, I thought it would be awesome to share with you the books that I think would be great on a fun, summer reading list.
Truly Madly Guiltyby Liane Moriarty. If you loved Gone Girl or Girl on the Train, then you will love anything written by Liane Moriarty. The book takes place in Australia and is about three sets of couples and a BBQ that changed everything. The dynamics of the characters are very intriguing and the detail is impeccable. It is quite the page turner!
The House at the Edge of Night by Catherine Banner. This book is the perfect summer read, especially if you have some serious wanderlust (like me). It takes place on a picturesque island off the coast of Italy. The story begins in the point of view of a young orphan and follows him through meeting his wife and having children. I don't want to spoil the entire story, so I will stop there. I love books like this because you get the full scope of characters and it leaves you wanting more!
Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty. Similar to Truly Madly Guilty, this book is quite the page-turner and very suspenseful! It is about three mothers and a murder. It has become a HBO mini-series, which is good. However, I definitely recommend reading the book! It is a bit different from the series and provides more details on the characters.
What Alice Forgotby Liane Moriarty. As you can probably tell, I have been obsessed with reading Liane Moriarty novels. I can't help it - they are written extremely well and are very suspenseful! What Alice Forgot is about a woman who recently hit her head and forgot the last ten years of her life. When she wakes up, she believes she is 29, happily married, and pregnant with her first child. In actuality, she is about to turn 40, is going through a divorce, and has three children! It is really interesting to read about Alice trying to regain her memory and fill in the gaps of the previous ten years.
Let me know what books are on your summer reading list!
