Summer Reading List

With all the traveling Hubby and I have been up to, I have rediscovered my love for reading. I love to indulge in some light, easy, chic lit inflight. It makes the time fly by (pun very much intended).

Here are a few that I have read recently...

The Royal We by Heather Crocks and Jessica Morgan -- A cute story about an American girl named Bex who studies abroad at Oxford and falls for the Prince of England. While this book could have been totally cliche, it was really dark and emotional at times, as the story follows the couple's tumultuous relationship over the course of five years and delves into the competitive and at times unhealthy relationship of Bex and her sister. From hiding from the paparazzi, to learning to deal with the Royal Family, this tale made me wonder what things were like for Princess Kate early on.

The Fixer Upper by Mary Kay Andrews -- a young lobbyist gets entangled in a political scandal and must flee Washington DC. Dempsey ends up in a tiny town in Georgia fixing up the old southern mansion her father recently inherited from a long lost uncle and starts to fall for none other than the cute probate lawyer handling the estate! This story explores many dynamic relationships and gives new meaning to the term next of kin.

Ladies' Night by Mary Kay Andrews -- a famous lifestyle blogger finds herself in the throws of a nasty divorce and has to reinvent herself personally and professionally. Forced to attend a divorce recovery group after she drowns her husbands fancy sports car in their backyard pool, Grace finds friendship and love with this group of unlikely characters.

Dare River Series | Book 1 | Country Heaven by Ava Miles -- Bad boy country music star, Rye Crenshaw, hires local diner worker and PhD student, Tory Simmons to come on tour with him to be his personal cook. The two bond over Tory's cooking, while Tory helps Rye reconnect with his family in ways he never thought possible. 

I'm currently reading Book 2 in the Dare River Series, The Chocolate Garden. It is so good!

Anybody reading anything fabulous this summer?



  1. I definitely want to read the fixer upper
    Dresses & Denim

    1. It was so good! I couldn't put it down!

  2. The Royal We sounds right up my alley... cliche, but hey... if it ain't broke... lol
    I recently made time to get back into reading, and I'm sooo happy I have! I organize my reading with Good Reads (share the link to my Goodreads profile on my blog)! I just finished the book Dollface (set in the 1920s in Chicago...) it was SO GOOD, I was sad it had to end! Also am in the middle of reading a non-fiction piece called Spy The Lie (written by CIA interrogators and how to identify habits of liars, and then pull out more information to get an honest confession)...also an intriguing read!

    Happy reading!!
