Every week I have my dvr fully stocked of a new show to record almost every night and I find myself indulging in The Hills, The City and The Real Housewives of New Jersey (there, I admit it). But what is better than surrending your brain to nonsense television, is curling in bed with a good book. As summer has now come around it is time to start working on my beach reads
Beach reads are the book version of reality television. Really no thought process involved, the story may be completely made up but once you're engrossed, you just can't stop! My impulse buying is a regular contender on my blog and the purchases don't just limit to clothing and accessories. I am an avid shopper on Amazon.com, where I believe you can buy/find anything! Amazon are clever ones with their great "reccommendation" section, its like they can read my mind!
In result, I have created this pile of books to read on my nightstand. The pile keeps growing but I have found no time to start tackling the pile but soon enough time will come, I'll be on the beach with my toes in the sand and my dvr will have to survive on its own for a week because these books need to be read! I'm always looking for a good beach read so I thought I'd share my list with you and ask for you to share yours-- guaranteed it will be on my doorstep by the end of the week, thanks Amazon!
Hope in a Jar by Beth Harbison
A year ago I picked up Shoe Addicts Anonymous in the small bookstore near the beach I was visiting. I needed another beach read and thought I could relate pretty well to the subject. In result, I found a new favorite beach read author and put Beth Harbison's new book on pre-order! This story is about a friendship that was ended over a rumor and now reuniting at their 20th high school reunion their paths cross. It seems as the book jacket says that "Hope in a jar: We all need it."
Heart of the Matter by Emily Giffin
Another book I was anxiously waiting the release of. Emily Giffin wrote Something Borrowed, Something Blue, and Baby Proof- an adorable series that takes you by surprise. This is her most recent book that I couldn't wait until the beach to start. So while I should be productive around the house or doing schoolwork, Emily Giffin has me caught up in a world where two very different woman's lives collide after a tragic accident.
Is there a pattern here...?
Heat Wave by Richard Castle
Here's one that will throw a wrench in the system and catch you off guard. The name Richard Castle may sound familar to you if find yourself flipping channels on Monday nights. Richard Castle is the lead charachter on the ABC show cleverly titled Castle. The story is about a murder mystery writer who begins shadowing a NYPD detective to gain inspiration to write his next book. This is that book! ABC you're brilliant bringing the tv show to life-- his second book Naked Heat is set to be released in September.
Commencement by J. Courtney Sullivan
While Amazon.com gets me in trouble with a mouse I can't help but suckered into bookstores and book aisles. It's a known fact that when you walk into Target, you are bound to walk out with 90% of your purchase not necessities. My problem yesterday, walked in to buy new pillows came out with a new book to add to the night stand. I couldn't resist the teasing story of four friends and their journey through college, could you?
