After a long hiatus, I finally am back on my reading game and read a few amazing books this spring! There have been so many on my TBR and I finally was able to cross a few off the list that I highly recommend. I rounded up everything I’ve been reading in case you need a new book to enjoy while you’re relaxing in the spring and summer sun 🙂 For more of my book recommendations, don’t miss my full book list here or my reading category on the blog where I go into more detail.

This Summer Will Be Different by Carley Fortune

As I mentioned, I had been in such a reading rut and this one got me right out of it! I’ve been a fan of Carley Fortune since I read her debut novel, Every Summer After (which is basically the adult version of The Summer I Turned Pretty so you could see why it was an instant favorite). I was thrilled when she announced her third book, This Summer Will Be Different, and pre-ordered it seconds later. If you’re looking for the perfect beach read, this is it! It’s set on Prince Edward Island and the way she describes it makes you want to instantly book a trip. 

Funny Story by Emily Henry

Speaking of authors I love, I was literally counting down the days until the release of Emily Henry’s Funny Story. She has a way of pulling you into her stories that force you to finish them in one sitting. And it was no different with Funny Story. Miles is one of my favorite leading men to date. Maybe a little too perfect, but I’ll take it. I also had a soft spot for the protagonist, Daphne, because she’s a librarian, and I come from a long line of women who worked at the library too! I loved that I actually knew all of the terms.

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

I’m not sure why it took me so long to finally move on to book two of the A Court of Thorns & Roses series, but I am sure glad I finally did. I thought I loved the first book, but WOW! I don’t want to give anything away, but it was incredible. One thing I will say is that if you’re worried you might not like the series because you’re not a big fan of fantasy, don’t let that hold you back! While I don’t mind the fantasy genre, it’s definitely not my first pick, yet this series is one of my favorites ever.

Girls That Invest by Simran Kaur

I’ve been wanting to get better at throwing some non-fiction books into the mix and this month I actually did. I don’t share this side of me often, but I’m very into personal finance and investing. I’m definitely a beginner, which is why I’m always trying to read up on it as much as I can. Girls That Invest is perfect for those who want to learn more about stocks and investing, but often feel too overwhelmed or intimidated by it. I was happy that I already understood most of what she was explaining, but I did learn quite a few helpful tips. If there’s one thing that you’ll get out of this book no matter your level of expertise, it’s the importance of financial independence, especially as a woman!
