Summer is ending and classes are starting back up, which means I most likely won’t have time to read (although I’ll try my best to). I read some amazing books this summer that you should definitely add to your reading list.
I’ve gone through a little suspenseful phase for two of my books this summer.
- The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
- Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
Both of these books are similar in some ways. I personally like The Girl on the Train better than Gone Girl and the movie just came out too!
Then of course our my love stories. These may be some of my favorite books to read.
- Me Before You by Jojo Meyers
- The Choice by Nicholas Sparks
Me Before you was a great book and the movie was even better. Usually it’s the other way around, but sometimes love stories can drag on in books and in the movies it gets right to the point. The Choice was also an excellent book, but I liked the book better than the movie. I don’t think they picked a good character for the main girl in the book. It’s always the worst when that happens!
For graduation my mom got me a lot of self realization books. I just graduated college, now what do I do with my life type of books. They honestly have been very helpful and I encourage you to read them if you ever feel like you aren’t on the right track or that you don’t know what you want to do with your life.
- What I Know Now Letters to my Younger Self by Ellyn Spragins
- 20 Something 20 Everything by Hassler
- She Walks in beauty by Caroline Kennedy
Have you ever felt like you would like to write your younger self a letter. Maybe even if it was a couple years ago. Wouldn’t it be nice to write her some advice? What would you write her? In the book What I Know Now Letters to my Younger Self it has some women role models that write notes to their younger selves and they give some great advice. Thebook 20 Something 20 Everything is basically about being in your 20’s. All the ups and all the downs of being in your 20’s and finally the book She Walks in Beauty is a poem all about women. These books are very helpful for women in their 20’s and women who aren’t very such what they want to do with their life.
