10 Summer Reads


Tomorrow is the Fourth of July, meaning summer is now officially in full swing.

We’ll be spending the next few months keeping this bump close to home- and I’m planning on a whole lot of {shaded} beachside lounging in my future. Hopefully, this will leave me with some much desired time to dive head first into a book or two {or three}. Admittedly, I haven’t finished as many reads as I would have liked to this year; but there’s still some time to check a few of these highly recommended books off my list.

Here are a few of the books I’ve read so far this year, as well as the ones that I hope to read in the upcoming weeks.
