Favourites: Beachy Reads 2016- Wish/Get List

Disclaimer-- if you're looking for great literary suggestions to develop your character and provoke your brain, this is not the place for you today...

Summer reads-- the beachier, the better!!! A little romance, a well developed plot, strong characters and tons of fun. As I reread or lend books out, I don't mind buying a few treats for myself each summer-- better than Cheetos, no? Here are a few 2016 books on my list this summer. I   pre-ordered, want, may borrow or bought the following....

 I love, love, love me some Elin so Here's to Us was first on my pre-order list! Her characters are so well developed and her stories so thought out and reek of summer, heat and sand--- I literally count the days until I can read her books!

Emily Giffin writes books every couple years and truth be told I wasn't a fan of the plot of her last book, The One and Only.  I'm still a fan of her though so I preordered  First Comes Love. Apparently, a book about two sisters, a death and a lie, I can't wait to read it. 


 I bought The Nest this week because of the great reviews--- and also because  I got it for less than $4 CDN. I can't wait to read about the dysfunctional Plum family. Cannot wait! 

The Sweetheart Deal about a young widow, her husband's friend  and a long time pact also is interesting and it's on the list for sure!

Another author I became a fan of this year and binge read (is that a thing?),  I can't wait to get into another Liane Moriarty around mid summer. 

#dontjudge The Bachelorette is abother one of my guily summer pleasures so I feel like I owe it to the franchise to read Andi's new book. However, when I perused it at my book-store, I think it's a quick one time read so maybe I'll borrow this one.

The Nanny Diaries were a good read so I'm intrigued to see what the authors have come up with. Another borrow most likely! 

I've bought quite a few of the Lauren Weisburger books as they are such fun, dishy reads so I might be inclined to buy of borrow this one also about a tennis prodigy making some headlines. 

And this one is not from this year but I'm one of the last people on the planet reading Me Before You. I've just started it and it's a bit slow but getting more interesting.... 

If you're interested, here are some of my 2015 reads that I loved. 

Kids-- feed yourselves dinner  and put yourselves to bed from mid June--- Mommy's got some reading to do!!!

Happy weekending, friends!

  1. We must have the same taste in books because I want to read ALL OF THESE. I will have to come back to this and put them into my GoodReads. Happy weekend!

  2. I LOVE Emily Giffin! I havent read her most recent one because it seemed like nobody liked it :(. Hopefully this one is better!!

  3. Sounds like some really interesting reads...good to have something to keep you busy on your spare time.

  4. We are definitely twinning in the book department right now as I have most of these either in my Amazon wishlist or in a stack on my nightstand to read. I'm DYING to read Emily Giffin's new one. She is one of my very favorite authors so I was super excited to see that she has another one coming out!

  5. I want to read Me Before You so badly! And that Andi Dorfman book looks great! I loved her as the bachelorette...but I hated Josh.
    Blessed Messes


Hearing from you makes me so happy!!
