Now, although this post may not seem to be very fashionable, I tend to believe that one of the best accessories a girl can have is a good book, which equals more stuff in your brain, which equals even more beauty. So, basically this is a list of things that will make you more beautiful. I should be making big money here.
My 5 things today is a list of some summer reads I guarantee you will love. Beware. None of them are young adult fiction, not because I don't love a little YA fiction guilty pleasure now and then, but because I think there is much goodness that can come in reading about real people and not vampires or aliens now and then. That said, if you haven't read The Hunger Games, shut your computer, and run, don't walk to Walmart and get them or we can't be friends. Also, Lauren has a FABULOUS book list with a lot of great YA reads here, which you will want to visit.
Now, onward. My list of books you should read this summer:
1. Tom Rachman, The Imperfectionists.
Hilarious writing, rich, quirky, and relateable characters,
set in Rome, interesting format. I loved.
2. Nicole Krauss, The History of Love
The most beautiful and surprising novel I have read in a while.
3. Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner
Everyone should read this. EVERYONE!
4. Markus Zusak, I Am the Messenger
Have your read Zusak's, The Book Thief? Then you know how good of a writer he is.
If you haven't read it, you must read both. Asap.
5. Nancy E. Turner, These is my Words
If you don't read any others from my list, read this one.
You will want to marry me after.
Do you have any summer reading recommendations? We would love to hear!
Happy reading/becoming more beautiful/summer!
