best reads for summer 2016

This week has been a bit tough. These past few days have been filled with multiple doctor visits and lot of time in bed for a summer bug i’ve been battling. The silver lining to all of this? More time to finally dig into that summer reading list.

Summer is my favorite time to crack open a few novels. Whether by the beach, in the park or alongside the pool, I savor the few hours spent unplugged + invested in a well-written novel. Both through book clubs + friends, I rely highly on the recommendations of others for choosing my next title. Today, in an effort to save you some research of your own, i’m here to share a few of these.
