As the summer heat dies down and back to school/work era begins I like to find ways to hold on to that summer feeling. One way that I do this is by finding good reads. I found a handful of books that I am actually dedicating the time to read this fall. These are books either critically acclaimed, I just picked up off the shelf or heard about from friends.
Today I am sharing 10 books that you should actually read this season. Enjoy! xo
1. Crazy Rich Asians
Read this book for romance, humor and light drama. This summer the film adaptation of the book came out but I highly recommend reading the book too if you haven’t. I read this page-turner in under a week.
2. When Life Gives You Lululemons
Remember Emily from the Devil Wears Prada? Author Lauren Weisberger wrote Emily her own standalone book. Here you see Emily’s life after ditching Miranda. This is a book that you’ve seen around stands everywhere. Take a chance and follow Emily’s journey.
3. You Are a Badass
This is Audree’s go-to book when traveling or needing a light read. The author is straight-forward, used personal experiences and was humorous. If you’re trying to improve any aspect of your life I urge you to pick up this book.
4. Emergency Contact
Yes, this is a young adult novel but it has a big message. It’s a coming of age book that deals with the struggles of communication in the modern day. It makes you ask yourself, “can intimacy be expressed in a relationship primarily operating through technology?” It’s a relatable book that is honest with you.
5. Do This for Me
A story filled with revenge, humor and a swirling plot-line. Raney had it all; a great job, children and a loyal husband. Until she finds out her husband is cheating on her. Fast-paced and humorous this book is a must read!
6. She Regrets Nothing
“She Regrets Nothing is the love child of Gossip Girl and Crazy Rich Asians, plus the social climbing of a Gatsby party.” – Refinery 29. Enough said, I’m hooked. I’ a sucker for Gossip Girl and Crazy Rich Asians.
7. Work Party
Looking for a little career motivation or boost? This is the book for you! Jaclyn Johnson is your new mentor. In this book you’ll get wisdom from not only Jaclyn but other female entrepreneurs who are changing the game!
8. Playing With Matches
Hannah Orenstein is a friend of a friend and I was so excited to get my hands on this book. The main character is a match-maker in NYC and you follow the ups and downs of being a match-maker. This book is funny, surprising and eye-opening.
9. Big Little Lies
Relatable characters, humor, suspense and a thickening plot. Read this book before you sit down to watch the HBO series. This author has a way of sucking you in and taking you on a ride.
