It has been a minute since I’ve shared a new post on the blog and what better way to start back up than to share a couple of my favorite books!
I am a sucker for a good beach read. Something kind of mindless and fun that allows me to escape the craziness of the real world for a minute. After going to Mexico last month, I binged a couple of new books and it was seriously the best! If you are looking for a new book to read or have a vacation coming up soon where you need a good book, check out my list! No spoilers though, I promise!
- The Golden Couple
Over the past couple of years, Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen have become two of my FAVORITE authors! They have co-written a few books together and they are my absolute favorites! Their newest book, The Golden Couple, is my favorite so far! Full of twists and turns, I was able to finish it in one day!
2. When Life Gives You Lululemons
A couple of years ago, I was a part of a book club and this was one of our first books. I became obsessed with it immediately! For those who love the Devil Wears Prada, check this out! It is written by the same author and is considered a sequel to it. I will say, you do not need to have read The Devil Wears Prada in order to know what is going on in the book. It is truly it’s own story that is so good!
3. The Light of Paris
If you are someone who loves a cheesy, romance novel, this is the book for you! This novel goes back and forth between the 1920s in Paris and the 90s in the US. Full of romance, this is the definition of chick-lit!
4. Little Fires Everywhere
Most have probably already read this book after the hit mini-series a couple of years ago, but I had to include it in my list! This book is a super quick read, but full of craziness. If you haven’t read this yet, I highly recommend putting it on your reading list asap!
5. An Anonymous Girl
Another Sarah Pekkanen and Greer Hendricks book, this one is just as crazy as The Golden Couple. If you like to be shocked as you read, definitely get your hands on this one. I still can’t get over some of the unexpected plot twists! Full of chic people who are not the most ethical, it’s a soap opera in a book.
6. Where the Grass is Green and the Girls are Pretty
I personally love a good book that refers to current events and this one does it so well. If you kept up with the rich and famous who were involved in the college admission scandal a couple years ago, take a look at this fantastical take on it. Full of posh and slightly out of touch characters, it ultimately has a happy ending that you can’t help but smile about.
7. Red, White, and Royal Blue
If you’re as obsessed with the Royal family as I am, you need to check this book out. It is a modern day love story with princes, forbidden love, and of course a happy ending.
8. Everyone Worth Knowing
This book is a bit of a blast from the past. Written in the early 2000s, it has a Sex and the City kind of vibe to it. Full of snark, glamor, and plenty of OMG moments, it is an absolute hoot to read
9. The Lies That Bind
This book is definitely an odd one. I debated putting this one on the list, but I have to admit, I couldn’t put it down. Full of characters that one minute you love them, and the next you can’t stand, as well as plenty of twists and turns. Worth checking out for sure, even if you’re a bit uncertain of how you feel in the end.
10. The Wife Between Us
Last, but certainly not least is The Wife Between Us. This is the book that got me hooked on Sarah Pekkanen and Greer Hendricks. Absolutely mindblowing by the end, you may have to power through the first few chapters, but I swear it gets better!
