StyleBlueprint Memphis’ Top 10 Summer Reads!
Anything by Elin Hildebrand
Always the perfect escape read and she’s got a new one out this summer!
Karen White’s House on Tradd “trilogy”
Really anything by Karen White hooks me but it’s nice to have 3 in a row lined up.
Leila Meacham’s Roses has been recommended to me for some time now and I can’t wait to read as this seems to be a favorite by many.
Before there was Hunger Games, there was The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Bringing Up Bebe by Pamela Druckerman
First there was Why French Women Don’t Get Fat, now their parenting skills are being exalted in this wise read for moms-to-be.
Arcadia by Lauren Groff
I’ll admit, I judged this book by its cover — in a good way. But this story of a child born in a hippie commune, following her through mid-life sounds really powerful and entertaining.
Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake by Anna Quindlen
Pulitzer Prize winner and NYC columnist Anna Quindlen’s memoir, is all about celebrating life’s milestones and moments as she writes about marriage, girlfriends, mothers, faith, loss, stuff and more in this relevant-to-all ages book.
She’s Come Undone by Wally Lamb
My friend Whitten reads this one once a year ever since college. I’ll have to check it out this summer and keep it in my rotation.
Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman
Summer’s a great time to figure out what language speaks to you (and your partner).
Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
If you’re like me and have enjoyed any of the popular “young adult” series (Twilight, Hunger Games…) and wait impatiently for the next movie to premier, now’s a great time to catch up on the Beautiful Creatures series before the movie debuts this fall.
