LifestyleOur Favorites

It’s summer and that means the days get hotter and our “To Be Read” list is getting longer and longer with all the amazing books coming out! Here’s a look at 3 that I recommend you grab as soon as they hit shelves, some which are even available right now! Happy reading, book lovers, and stay tuned for more recommendations this summer!

#1 “Public Relations” by Katie Heaney (May 9th, 2017)

Young PR star Rose Reed is thrown into the big leagues when her boss leaves town the day of the firm’s meeting with Archie Fox, a young, hot, internationally famous British singer-songwriter. The meeting is going badly until Rose suggests a staged romance with up-and-coming, young indie star Raya. He’ll do it, but only if Rose becomes his publicist. What ensues is a tale full of laughter, love and intrigue which will have you flipping pages late at night.

#2 “Dating You/Hating You” by Christina Lauren (June 6, 2017)

In this stand-alone romance, despite the odds against them from an embarrassing meet-awkward at a mutual friend’s Halloween party, Carter and Evie immediately hit it off. Even the realization that they’re both high-powered agents at competing firms in Hollywood isn’t enough to squash the fire. It’s a great novel full of love, lust and a lot of “what would happen if they end up together” intrigue. Pick it up as the perfect beach read!

#3 “Wonder Woman: Warbringer” by Leigh Bardugo (August 29, 2017)

We all need something to look forward to, especially after the release of the epic DC “Wonder Woman” flick, and this late summer read is one we cannot wait to grab!  This book tells the tale of Diana, Princess of the Amazons. And her fight is just beginning. Diana longs to prove herself to her legendary warrior sisters. But when the opportunity finally comes, she throws away her chance at glory and breaks Amazon law—risking exile—to save a mere mortal. Even worse, Alia Keralis is no ordinary girl and with this single brave act, Diana may have doomed the world. We cannot wait to dig in to Leigh’s version of the super hero’s origin story!
