8 Books To Read This Summer

If you’re anything like me, it takes some real motivation to just sit down and read a book. I know, it’s sad. Nowadays I find myself surfing the web or spending hours on Instagram instead. Despite my laziness, I have read a few books this summer that I have thoroughly enjoyed from beginning to end. The titles are included in this list along with some that I am still wanting to read. Who knows, these just might make your perfect poolside read!

Non-fiction on successful living:

Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert

Every time I walk into a book store, I see this book sitting at the front table and I keep meaning to read it! It’s about incorporating creativity and passion into our everyday thoughts and lives. I’m a creative person who uses this blog as an outlet to express myself so I would love to hear what Elizabeth Gilbert has to say!

Where’s My Fifteen Minutes by Howard Bragman

I’m a communications major with the intention of becoming a publicist one day so this book gave me great insight into the world of PR! It’s written by a successful publicist so it was entertaining to read all of his personal anecdotes.

Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell

My brother is currently reading this so I’m gonna snatch it from him once he’s finished 😉 It’s about the factors that make up a successful life.

Inspirational and Spiritual:

Breakfast with Buddha by Roland Merullo

I have a bookshelf in my house filled with novels and this book happens to be on it. I keep meaning to read it and I’ve only heard great things about it so I’m excited to pick it up next!

The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle

One of my Mom’s favoritesssss. Sometimes I get way to caught up with anxiety of the future or past so this book is a must in learning how to live in the MOMENT.

Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes

Shona Rhimes is a successful producer who came out with this New York Times Best Seller. It’s a great read if you’re looking for some change in your life and shows how saying yes is the key!


The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

I’m currently half way through this book and it is soooo good! Seriously guys. I was up until two a.m. last night because I couldn’t put the book down. PLUS it’s going to be a movie!

The Murder House by James Patterson


I stumbled across this one in the book store. It looks super suspenseful and reminds me a bit of And Then There Were None.

Let me know if you have read any of these books or if you have any book recommendations!
