Summer is usually the only time I get into reading, especially when I was a teenager and had time to do it! But as I'm getting older, I'm finding myself wanting to revisit some of the things I enjoyed doing before social media, before influencing and before marriage! Sometimes you have to rediscover your youth to find yourself again. I know, kinda deep for a summer reading blog post but hear me out. I love reading fun girly books, that are fun, inspiring, and tell a good story. I love reading books that were the inspiration for some of my fave movies and shows. So if you're like me and are looking for something juicy and fun to read to explore the fantasy world (but not too fantasy like harry potter, than look no further and just keep READING! HA! get it?

This book I recently finished as my 2019 goal to start reading again! I had started it a while ago and never finished because its so different from the show, but I won't spoil it. you must read, even if you're not a fan of the show. ITS NOT THE SAME.

I am one of those I read this book because of the TV show, but boy is it worth it!!! This book is terrifying and SO SO good. I am getting ready to read the second one, after the next season comes, I want to read it after I watch so nothing is ruined! Also the story changes a bit from the book on the show, so I dont want to ruin the experience of either.

This book MOVED me in high school, I would say to this day its my favorite book. Virginia's life was incredibly sad, but she was a tremendous writer, and I definitely understand her. 

buy
This book is a classic, it might be the default for everyone who doesn't really read but wants to sound smart, but who cares. This book is amazing, touching, truly a work of art. A must read at least once in your life. 
buy
These next two books are PRE-quels to sex and the city by the same author and their predecessor SATC (above) These take place when Carrie is in high school and they're sooooo much fun to read! I read these years ago but definitely a fun summer read just to fantasize about being 16 again!

Another class you read once in your life. Or maybe 17 if you're Rachel.

Yes I read all of them, I actually read them twice. SUE ME!!!

ok this one is a bit embarrassing, because its literally for 10 year olds but omg, its one of my fave books ever!!! I love mermaids and I've never found a mermaid book like this; so pure and easy to read and sweet. It is definitely something you can read in a day by the pool. 


I try not to read more than one book at a time but I am currently reading two and I am loving both! They're both about New York of course and I'm sure you'll recognize them!

This list is also short because I just got back into reading so I haven't dove too deep into the pool of literacy but I do have some books at home and in mind that I want to either re-read or begin reading!

The second in the "YOU" series

buy
This book looks like so much fun! Its set in 1940s NYC and I read the first page and I cannot wait to dive in when I finish the two I'm reading now!

buy
This book I started reading years ago and I never finished it! I think now that I am older I will appreciate it more so I will be reading it from the beginning!
