I hope you all survived and enjoyed your 3-day weekend, because I did. Also, I survived not staining any clothes with barbecue sauce this weekend. I celebrate all successes. Although we still have a few weeks left until it’s officially summer, I’m already preparing for it. One thing I already have ready for summer is my summer reading list.
So, if you are looking for summer read suggestions or just a good book to slowly chisel away over the next few months, keep reading for my picks.
When it comes to books, I tend to always have a small stack of books on my bedside table. About a month or so ago, at church, I bought Lisa Bevere’s Without Rival: Embrace Your Identity and Purpose in an Age of Confusion and Comparison. It’s a lengthy title, but I can’t wait to dig into this book. Recently, I’ve been working on my identity and how I want to present myself. Unfortunately, in the age of social media and constant digital boasting, my view can get a little murky. So, I’m hoping this book will help keep those blinders out of my view.
Last year, I randomly bought and read in one weekend Kevin Kwan’s Crazy Rich Asians. It was one of those books that instantly captivated me to read the entire book on a rainy weekend. The book was such a hit that it’s being turned into a movie, which I plan to see. However, in the meantime, Kwan recently released Rich People Problems. Based on the reviews I’ve read so far, if you enjoyed CRA, then you might be just as interested in this book, too.
One of my favorite books that I read over the past year was Jen Sincero’s You Are A Badass. I loved this book, because it was straight-to-the-point read that was a motivational slap to the face. Sincero recently released a follow-up (kinda), You Are A Badass at Making Money. I’m in money-making and money-saving mode and feel this book is right up my alley. Hopefully, this book will perfectly mix bluntness and humor, like it’s predecessor.
Finally, I plan to read I’m Having So Much Fun Here Without You this summer. A few months ago, I added this book to my Amazon wishlist, because a co-worker swears that it’s good. So, I accepted the challenge and decided that I’m going to read it this summer. Let’s see is Sara is right.
There you have it, the list of books on my summer reading list. If you have any summer read suggestions, please share them below.
