Happy Independence Day weekend, y’all! As I mentioned last week, I have been off my blogging game lately and that could not be any more true. I am sure some of y’all know what I am talking about, but I really should fix this ASAP. Inspired by summer and an odd reason to want to visit the beach (I am not a beach person, at all), I am rounding up five books that I would like to read when I take my imaginary trip to the beach.

- Chose the Wrong Guy Gave Him the Wrong Finger by Beth Harbison (3.5 out of 5 stars)
Ten years ago, Quinn Barton was on her way to the altar to marry Burke Morrison, her high school sweetheart, when something derailed her. Rather, someone derailed her–the Best Man, who at the last minute–and with shocking revelations–begged her to reconsider the marriage. Quinn, stunned, hurt, and confused, struggled between ignoring what she was told–or running away.
She chose running. With the Best Man. Who happened to be Burke’s brother, Frank… (con’t to Amazon for more)
- Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty (4.5 out of 5 stars)
Sometimes it’s the little lies that turn out to be the most lethal. . . .
A murder… . . . a tragic accident… . . . or just parents behaving badly?
What’s indisputable is that someone is dead.
But who did what?
Big Little Lies follows three women, each at a crossroads… (con’t to Amazon for more)
Big Little Lies is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and second wives, mothers and daughters, schoolyard scandal, and the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive.
- My Life Next Door – Huntley Fitzpatrick (4.5 out of 5 stars)
The Garretts are everything the Reeds are not. Loud, numerous, messy, affectionate. And every day from her balcony perch, seventeen-year-old Samantha Reed wishes she was one of them . . . until one summer evening, Jase Garrett climbs her terrace and changes everything. As the two fall fiercely in love, Jase’s family makes Samantha one of their own. Then in an instant, the bottom drops out of her world and she is suddenly faced with an impossible decision. Which perfect family will save her? Or is it time she saved herself?
- To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before – Jenny Han (4.5 out of 5 stars)
Lara Jean’s love life goes from imaginary to out of control in this heartfelt novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Summer I Turned Pretty series.
What if all the crushes you ever had found out how you felt about them…all at once?
Lara Jean Song keeps her love letters in a hatbox her mother gave her. They aren’t love letters that anyone else wrote for her; these are ones she’s written. One for every boy she’s ever loved—five in all. When she writes, she pours out her heart and soul and says all the things she would never say in real life, because her letters are for her eyes only. Until the day her secret letters are mailed, and suddenly, Lara Jean’s love life goes from imaginary to out of control.
- The Knockoff – Lucy Sykes and Jo Piazza (4.2 out of 5 stars)
When Imogen returns to work at Glossy after six months away, she can barely recognize her own magazine. Eve, fresh out of Harvard Business School, has fired “the gray hairs,” put the managing editor in a supply closet, stopped using the landlines, and hired a bevy of manicured and questionably attired underlings who text and tweet their way through meetings. Imogen, darling of the fashion world, may have Alexander Wang and Diane von Furstenberg on speed dial, but she can’t tell Facebook from Foursquare and once got her iPhone stuck in Japanese for two days. Under Eve’s reign, Glossy is rapidly becoming a digital sweatshop—hackathons rage all night, girls who sleep get fired, and “fun” means mandatory, company-wide coordinated dances to Beyoncé. Wildly out of her depth, Imogen faces a choice—pack up her Smythson notebooks and quit, or channel her inner geek and take on Eve to save both the magazine and her career. A glittering, uproarious, sharply drawn story filled with thinly veiled fashion personalities, The Knockoff is an insider’s look at the ever-changing world of fashion and a fabulous romp for our Internet-addicted age.
Thanks for stopping by this week! Let me know what you think of these reads, I will be purchasing some, if not all, of these books soon!
