Reading List | Summer 2017

I haven’t been doing very well with getting through my spring reading list (I’ve been in a bit of a reading rut — maybe I should read one of these), but with a new season and all the lovely sunshine we’ve been having, it’s time to start a new one. And truthfully my reading list is long enough already, a few more books won’t hurt, right?

Forever, Interrupted // Hello, Sunshine // My Lovely Wife in the Psych Ward // The Dollhouse // Eligible // The Regulars

Forever, Interrupted by Taylor Jenkins Reid. Since discovering Reid’s talents last year, I have made it my mission to read through all her books this year, and this one is just the next on my list. Thankfully she’s only been a published author for a few years, so I don’t have too many left.

Hello, Sunshine by Laura Dave. I started this one last week (though I’m only a chapter in since I’m already in the middle of two other books right now), and so far it’s interesting. This novel tells the story of a woman, Sunshine Mackenzie who is a culinary star who gets hacked and her life unravels.

My Lovely Wife in the Psych Ward: A Memoir by Mark Lukach. I usually try to pick light non-fiction for my summer reading, but this memoir intrigued me the instant I read about it. It tells the story of Mark and his wife Giulia who experiences an unexpected psychotic breakdown which leads to her living in the psych ward for nearly a month.

The Dollhouse by Fiona Davis. I love historical fiction, especially when the story intersects with modern-day, so this one set in the 1950s and present day about a hotel turned condo, with rumours of a “deadly skirmish” involving a maid and the old woman living upstairs sounds like a page-turner for sure.

Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld. I was originally wary of this novel because it’s a modern re-telling of my favourite novel (Pride & Prejudice), but I have heard so many good things about it, that I’ve decided to give it a try. I love pretty much all film adaptations of P&P (and the rest of Austen’s work too. Clueless anyone?) so hopefully I’ll love this too.

The Regulars by Georgia Clark. I’ll be honest, I put this one on my list solely for the cover art. What can I say? I’m a sucker for a pretty book cover.

What’s on your reading list this summer? Let me know in the comments if you have any recommendations!
