Summer Reading List!

30 Jun

I’m soo happy it’s summer so I could have time to read again! Between traveling and getting good weekend reads, here is a list of books I made that I’m really excited for!

Something Borrowed (and its sequel, Something Blue) by Emily Giffin

You’ve probably watched it in theaters, but if you didn’t have a chance yet Something Borrowed is the best read! I really enjoyed Giffin’s style of writing so much that I borrowed/bought her 3 other books out, Love The One You’re With, Heart of the Matter, and Baby Proof, and was not disappointed. I recommend all of them- just look up Emily Giffin, and you’re in for a treat. Five stars.

“The Best Advice I Ever Got” by Katie Couric

I skimmed this book at a Barnes & Nobles and didn’t want to walk out without it! I now have this book on hold at my local library, and am looking forward to reading about major events from Katie’s perception on the perch of a Today Show anchor. She writes a collection of essays with such interesting advice and personal moments with so many famous people she’s interviewed, this is very much going to be an inspirational read!

The Making of a Royal Romance: William, Kate and Harry- A Look Behind the Palace Walls by Katie Nicholl

Having woken up at 5 a.m. to watch the Royal Wedding in April, and especially since Prince William & Kate are making their first royal trip to the US this July, I think it makes this read all the more interesting!

My Year With Eleanor by Noelle Hancock

I first heard of this on a segment of the Today Show, and read a sample chapter on It was amazing- from the smooth, easy-read to Noelle’s could’ve-happened-to-any-of-us story of being on vacation when her six-figure job in NYC is terminated. Noelle took Eleanor Roosevelt’s famous qoute, “I do something I fear every day,” and went on a year-long instrumental journey towards success. Inspiring and love her writing style!

Unlimited: How to Live an Exceptional Life by Jillian Michaels

Had to mention this amazing, powerful book. Skip the self-help section at Borders or B&N because this book has everything packed in! I met Jillian at her book signing for Unlimited, and cannot tell you how much of a positive change this book has made on my life! An enjoyable, meaningful read no matter if you have weight to lose or not from America’s toughest trainer.

P.S. – I am a major fan of Jillian’s weekly podcasts, free on iTunes under “The Jillian Michaels Show.”
