Our June reading list is full of light beach reads and sensible must-reads. No matter the weather, or where your day takes you, I dare you not to completely devour even one of these great reads from our list.
- The Latte Factor: Why You Don’t Have to Be Rich to Live Rich by David Bach: If I gained a nickel for every time I said “I’m broke” or “I’m poor,” I’d be rich. But David’s book takes a very sensible approach to money that I never even thought of. I discovered this book while listening to a podcast, and his actionable advice drove me to buy this book. He uses fictional characters to bring to life real money stories that help you understand your finances and financial ability much better.
- Normal People by Sally Rooney: You definitely recognize Sally Rooney from a previous reading list when we included Conversations With Friends. She’s back with another compelling beach read about two high schoolers from opposite ends of the social ladders who later connect while in college. It seems that as adults they’ve switched places, and it’s a very fresh perspective on friendship.
- 200 Women: Who Will Change The Way You See The World by Geoff Blackwell, Ruth Hobday and Kieran Scott: 200 women were asked the same five interview questions. You’d think it would make for a repetitive series, but their diverse backgrounds and experiences are brought to life before your eyes, and not a single interview can be considered boring.
- Do Less: A Revolutionary Approach to Time and Energy Management for Busy Moms by Kate Northrup: Kate Northrup really packed this book with a lot of appreciated research. The concept of women working around their cycles may sound crazy, but you seriously need to read this book if you want to make an important and valuable change in your life to boost productivity. I’m not a mother, but I was able to apply everything she mentioned in the book. There are 14 different experiments included as well as some downloadable freebies to help you get started.
- Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston: Now I know why this book became an instant New York Times best seller! American royalty falls in love with English royalty, could this be any juicier? It’s like reading the novel version of a US Weekly, but so much better. It’s entertaining, funny and, of course, full of drama.
- Free to Focus: A Total Productivity System to Achieve More by Doing Less by Michael Hyatt: Is anyone else jumping on this bandwagon of doing less without sacrificing income? I think summer is the best time to explore this kind of way of thinking. Hello, do summer Fridays ring a bell? Michael Hyatt will help you bid farewell to ridiculous hours, while also throwing important facts your way. I finished this book in a week and still wanted more.
- Sorry I’m Late, I Didn’t Want to Come: One Introvert’s Year of Saying Yes by Jessica Pan: (In my best Chandler Bing voice) Could there be a more relatable book title? I think not! As an introvert, I sincerely appreciated this book while also falling head over heels for the entire concept. Books from an introvert’s perspective are hard to come by, and Jessica Pan is totally relatable and hilarious while also inspiring us introverts to step out of our comfort zones.
- Do It Scared: Finding the Courage to Face Your Fears, Overcome Adversity, and Create a Life You Love by Ruth Soukup: Even as a major Ruth Soukup fan, I completely blanked and realized that this book just released! As an anxious introvert, I live in fear of various things, and this book really helped me look at my anxieties from an outside perspective. We all need a reminder that fear is totally normal, and that we can overcome anything. More than that, Ruth offers practical strategies to tackle your fear and inspire success.
- Fear Is My Homeboy: How to Slay Doubt, Boss Up, and Succeed on Your Own Terms by Judi Holler: Fear has no place in your life. It will no longer stop you or deter you from doing the things you’ve always wanted to do thanks to Judi Holler. We’re all filled with so much toxic self-doubt and her actionable advice will help you take a step in the right direction.
