I love reading the “what I’ve been reading” posts from my favorite bloggers. Not only does it help me weed through the books I have endlessly piling up in my Amazon cart, but it keeps my list endlessly growing. This year I made the resolution to read every single day. I didn’t make any commitment to how many pages, or chapters, or anything like that, only simply to pick up a book and read every day. The results have stuck! I have read more this year than I have in a long time.
If you are trying to get back into reading, I highly recommend just promising yourself that you will read something every single day, and before you know it you will be in the habit and reading way more than just a sentence.
To get you started on your reading habit here are the books I have read this summer!
Little Fires Everywhere: I talked about this on Instagram when I finished reading it, but it deserves another shout out! This book was so amazing and I finished it in less than a week. I can’t wait until the movie comes out. I have a feeling it’s going to be a new favorite as well.
Turtles All the Way Down: This book was a nice, easy pool read. Although I didn’t feel like it was a life-changing plotline, it was extremely entertaining. If you like young adult fiction, then this book is for you.
How to Walk Away: I COULD NOT PUT THIS BOOK DOWN! I flew through the pages of this novel. If you are looking for a tragic start with a happy/feel-good ending, then put this in your cart today.
Something in the Water: I feel like everyone has heard about this book, but if you haven’t read it, you need to. My mom and I both read this book and were enthralled the whole way through. It’s definitely a page-turner, and the ending completely caught me off guard! I would highly recommend this read for a book club.
A couple other tips if you are trying to read more:
- Sign up for Book of the Month Club: they let you pick out a book every month to have delivered to your door.
- Follow the Reese Witherspoon Bookclub on Instagram: every month they share a new book for you to read along with, and their recommendations are amazing.
