Summer Reading 2018

Summer Reading List

The best part about a 3-day weekend is that the following week flies by! I’m going to be so excited when I get to Friday and it only feels like Thursday.  I finished reading Fed + Fit yesterday and after thinking about all the prep that I should really put into this to be successful, I’ve decided to start on Monday, June 4 instead of June 1 so I have the whole weekend to prepare.  So I’ll write up a full post on my plans and how I’m preparing before I actually start on Monday. 🙂

Does anyone else miss the summer reading lists from school? Me neither. Well, I liked the reading challenge in elementary school where you could pick whatever books you wanted, but high school required reading was not my thing.  It wasn’t the books’ fault, I just instinctively rebelled against being told to read something.  So maybe calling this my “summer reading list” will be to my disadvantage, but they’re all books I want to read, so it should be fine. Right? Right.

So here’s what I plan on reading this summer (with all my newly found free time from not watching as much TV)

Summer Reading Vertical 2

Health and Wellness

Summer Reading Health

Big Girl: How I gave up dieting & got a life by Kelsey Miller – I’m honestly not too sure if this book is legitimately about how to improve your health/wellbeing, or if it’s just anecdotal, but either way I think I’ll enjoy it.

Health at Every SizeThe Surprising Truth About Your Weight by Linda Bacon, PhD – always trust someone with a delicious name!  Also, intuitive eating is interesting.


Summer Reading Mindset

The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin – Honestly I’m almost finished this one, so does it really count?

The Four Tendencies by Gretchen Rubin – Gretchen Rubin is awesome. She has a really strong understanding of human nature and explains everything really well.  I read her other book, Better Than Before, and really enjoyed it.

You Are a Badass at Making Money by Jen Sincero – This one is for a networking book club, so I’ll need to get started on it soon!


Summer Reading Fiction

In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware –  This was an impulse buy awhile ago because it looks like just the right type of creepy/suspenseful (à la Gillian Flynn)

AdultingHow to Become a Grown-up in 535 Easy(ish) Steps by Kelly Williams Brown – another impulse buy because that title is my life right now.

Mini Shopaholic & Shopaholic to the Rescue by Sophie Kinsella – I love the Shopaholic series. They’re entertaining and easy to read. Perfect for days when I don’t want to think too deeply.

What’s on your reading list?  Are you team paper-book or team e-book? (I’m a bit of both depending on my mood.)

    1. yes! I love the Shopaholic books so much 🙂 and the Adulting book’s description says it’s based off the blog, so I think it is the one you’re thinking of. It was definitely an impulse buy based on the cover, so I’m looking forward to reading it!
