I was always the nerd who loved summer reading assignments in grade school–and I usually blew through them within the first couple of weeks of summer so I could get on to the “good” books. Because, lets face it, 1984 is just not a “good” book when you’re a teenage girl.
Long gone are the days of required reading, but I thought I’d give myself a summer reading list–and even toss in a couple of nonfiction books, since I almost always read fiction. Here’s my list.
Perfect by Rachel Joyce
All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven
Mr. Penumbra’s 24-hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan
Eat Dirt by Josh Axe
First Comes Love by Emily Giffin (out in June)
The Girls in the Garden by Lisa Jewell
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by JK Rowling (out in July)
