I haven’t been doing very well with getting through my spring reading list (I’ve been in a bit of a reading rut — maybe I should read one of these), but with a new season and all the lovely sunshine we’ve been having, it’s time to start a new one. And truthfully my reading list is long enough already, a few more books won’t hurt, right?
Forever, Interrupted by Taylor Jenkins Reid. Since discovering Reid’s talents last year, I have made it my mission to read through all her books this year, and this one is just the next on my list. Thankfully she’s only been a published author for a few years, so I don’t have too many left.
Hello, Sunshine by Laura Dave. I started this one last week (though I’m only a chapter in since I’m already in the middle of two other books right now), and so far it’s interesting. This novel tells the story of a woman, Sunshine Mackenzie who is a culinary star who gets hacked and her life unravels.
My Lovely Wife in the Psych Ward: A Memoir by Mark Lukach. I usually try to pick light non-fiction for my summer reading, but this memoir intrigued me the instant I read about it. It tells the story of Mark and his wife Giulia who experiences an unexpected psychotic breakdown which leads to her living in the psych ward for nearly a month.
The Dollhouse by Fiona Davis. I love historical fiction, especially when the story intersects with modern-day, so this one set in the 1950s and present day about a hotel turned condo, with rumours of a “deadly skirmish” involving a maid and the old woman living upstairs sounds like a page-turner for sure.
Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld. I was originally wary of this novel because it’s a modern re-telling of my favourite novel (Pride & Prejudice), but I have heard so many good things about it, that I’ve decided to give it a try. I love pretty much all film adaptations of P&P (and the rest of Austen’s work too. Clueless anyone?) so hopefully I’ll love this too.
What’s on your reading list this summer? Let me know in the comments if you have any recommendations!
