Must have Summer reading list

Hi guys!! Sorry things have been cray around here lately but I PROMISE to stop forgetting you!!

So I started reading a new book and it dawned on me that I haven’t done a book list in a while. Over the past few months I’ve been reading a lot of really awesome book and I decided to share some of them with you. If you’re like me, then finding a good book can often be hard. I tend to read a lot of series but lately I have been reading one-off type books and that’s ok.

Ok so here we go:

1. The Rosie Project

I think I probably talked about this book on my personal Facebook page for a while, when I was reading it and then also when I was finished. It’s about a man who meets a girl who is trying to find her biological father. What makes this book great, is that, the man in the story has what I determined to be Autism. It is the pairing of this unlikely duo that really makes you root for both parties. I seriously couldn’t put this book down. If you’re a fan of The Big Bang Theory then you will love this.

2. Soy Sauce for Beginners

Another one-off type of novel but with a great story to tell. This book is about a woman, who travels back to her families soy sauce factory in hopes to eventually take over and run it. She leaves a life behind in San Fransisco and also a potential divorce. This story really makes you stop and think about which direction your life is headed in.

3. How to Eat a Cupcake

While this story makes you hungry it also makes you feel a connection to both parties involved. A story about two girls from two different worlds, who put their differences aside and open up a cupcakery. I can’t give too much away but there is some mouth-watering cupcakes described as well as some mouth-watering men described. It’s definitely a must for the beach.

4. The Selection

I will warn you that this book has not been finished yet BUT I feel so strongly that I’m adding it to the list. You will find this book in the Teen Fiction/Fantasy section (don’t judge me) and even though it was literally just purchased last night I’ve read so much and can’t wait to read the second book. This book is a combination of the television show The Bachelor and the movie The Hunger Games. I know it sounds like an odd combination but trust me when I tell you how remarkable story and the writing really are. Set in a different time and country this book really sucks you in from the first chapter.

I swear by all of these books and really think they are fantastic reads! If you’ve read something great lately please leave a comment below, we would love to hear about it!

Thanks for reading! XOXO *Lindsay*
