My Summer 2015 Reading List


I was mentioning about things from my childhood that I took for granted and didn’t care to do at the time. Well, you can add summer reading lists to that growing list.

At the end of the school year, some schools pass out a list of books that students are expected to read while on summer break to prepare them for the next grade and school year.

Don’t get it twisted, I loved to read and still do. However, as a child, reading books instead of playing outside and going swimming was a guise to ruin our “well-deserved” summer break.

Now, as an adult, I look forwarded to reading and have adopted to curate my own reading lists for the summer. If on vacation, staycation, or just a quiet weekend at home absorbing cooling A/C, I love reading a good book to relax.

Currently, I finishing the 48 Laws of Power (Awesome read, FYI) and have plenty more I want to read. So, here is a list of books l plan to read this summer. My list consists of everything from fun, casual reads to books to help flourish my creative ideas, and books about business to help me plant some creative ideas I’ve been contemplating. Stay tuned for that.

Anyway, here are few books for my summer 2015 reading list


Zen and the Art of Making A Living: A Practical Guide to Creative Career Design – I’m brushing up creativity in order to live off it. So, this book is great for inspiration to providing a proven formula for bringing creativity, dignity, and meaning to every aspect of the work experience.


Promote Yourself: The New Rules for Career Success – In today’s world of instant “expert” everything and everybody thanks to social media and other elements, you really have to learn to be able to promote yourself; no matter what you want to do with your life.


Yes, Please – It’s Amy Poehler. Plus her last book was awesome!


Crazy Rich Asians – You kind of have to read this book. I heard a nice and entertaining read. Perfect for vacation.


Leave Your Mark: Land Your Dream Job. Kill It in Your Career. Rock Social Media – The promotion for this book was everything. Its by Aliza Licht, the brand and voice behind DKNY PR Girl.


The Status of All Things – I’m a sucker for cute cover! However, the story behind the cover sounded interesting enough to grab my attention.


Love and Miss Communiation – A cute story that tells what can blossom once you look up from your screen and into the world. So modern.
