I’ve had reading commitment issues lately however, I am excited to actually finish a book–cover-to-cover– on my upcoming vacation sans baby. Below is my summer reading wish list (keeping the material very light) thanks to theSkimm:
If you need a smart beach read, this is it. Set in Mallorca, it’s about something crazy that split up a honeymooning couple in the 1940s. Years later, their un-related children try to figure it out.
About the two completely different lives a woman could’ve led, based on who she goes home with one night. It’s like the book version of “Sliding Doors,” minus Gwyneth.
“The Family Stone” if the stone was cold hard cash. When the playboy older brother of a grown fam lands himself in rehab, he puts the group trust fund at risk. Cue his dysfunctional siblings scheming to get it all back. It’s funny and it’s deep. And you’ll hate-love them all.
A story about star-crossed lovers told in flashbacks. You’ll be as hooked as the first time you watched “The Bourne Identity,” and you’ll cry as much as the first time you watched “The Notebook.”
“Crazy, Stupid, Love” meets “Notting Hill.” About an actress making it big and the complicated relationship she has with the guy she met as a teenager. You’ll read it in two days.
