Summer is almost over. I know, it makes me want to cry too. But hey, it’s not over until it’s over. There are still plenty of opportunities to veg out on the beach or the pool or even on your own couch and curl up with a good book. I have read a few, and still have a few on my list, that I wanted to share here. So many of you have been suggesting amazing books. If you have any to recommend, please leave them in the comments below.
by Huraki Murakami
Men Without Women
I will almost always purchase the latest Murakami book and I am so excited to see that this new one was just released!
F. Scott Fitzgerald
The Great Gatsby
This is such a classic book that if you have not read it yet, now is the time. I love the writing and it reminds me of summer.
by Hal Elrod
The Miracle Morning
I did an entire blog post about the impact this amazing book had on my life. I strongly suggest it. It has completely transformed my mornings.
by Kevin Kwan
Crazy Rich Asians
About a month ago I asked for a suggestion on a light beach read and dozens of people told me to read this book. It is on my shelf and at the top of my list for August.
The Happiness Project
I never got around to reading this book when it came out, but a dear friend suggested I pick it up recently and I am so glad that I did. It is relatable, insightful and has given me a few tips on how to live a happier life.

How to Meditate
As some of you know, I recently got into meditation and this book helped me figure out how. Its not just entirely about how to meditate, but it's an insightful look into the practice of living a more balanced life.
by David Sedaris
Theft by Finding
I got hooked on David Sedaris at a young age after reading Running with Scissors. Absolutely love his sharp tongue and self deprecating sense of humor.
by Joan Didion
The Year of Magical Thinking
Haven't read it yet, but I plan to.
Just Kids by Patti Smith
This is one of my favorite books from last year. If you are a romantic who loves getting lost in the truth of a love story. Do yourself a favor and pick this up.
