7 Books To Add To Your August Reading List

It is HOT out there, and in between all of these pages. I’ve found these books impossible to put down, and the perfect way to pass the time while sitting in waiting rooms or as I attempted to catch up on my tan.

  1. How to Skimm Your Life by The Skimm: Only the best part of your inbox has come to life in book form. This book is filled with humor, news and life hacks that will keep you grounded and feel like you have some kind of life guide in your hands. From personal finance to politics, there’s not much that The Skimm missed in this book. Plus, it’s a woman-owned business and I’ll never not support those.
  2. Very Nice: A Novel by Marcy Dermansky: A famous novelist seduces a wealthy mother and her daughter, but I promise it’s a lot funnier than stomach-turning. We get a peek inside the fabulous life of a wealthy family, that is anything but perfect. I love how this book turns a very serious situation into a very hilarious novel. The characters are clearly flawed, but you can’t help but find ways to relate to them.
  3. The Power of Sprinkles: A Cake Book by the Founder of Flour Shop by Amirah Kassem: I have a confession to make…I originally got this cookbook because of the fabulous title and adorable cover. A book of cakes? How can anyone refuse? Any kind of way to make cakes you can think of is included in this book, and I promise the powerful visuals are enough to convince you that you need to try a new dessert recipe.
  4. The Other Woman by Sandie Jones: Adam and Emily love each other, clearly. But there’s another woman…and not the one you’re thinking of. Adam’s mother Pammie doesn’t approve of Emily for her son, and she’ll go to any means necessary to make sure the two don’t end up together. This one is definitely a page-turner that kept me up at night wanting more.
  5. The Flatshare: A Novel by Beth O’Leary: I’m a sucker for a romantic comedy. I rarely meet one that I don’t like, especially in novel form. After a terrible breakup, Tiffy is desperate for a decent place to live. She created the perfect apartment-share schedule with Leon who usually works night shifts. Even more perfect? They never have to meet. The two begin to write notes for one another in order to communicate since they never see each other. And of course, their writing relationship eventually turns into much more.
  6. Boss Up!: This Ain’t Your Mama’s Business Book by Lindsay Teague Moreno: Lindsay is a boss of her own making and runs her business the exact way that she wants to. For any solo-preneurs and entrepreneurs out there, you’ll definitely get the inspiration you need to craft a business that you love and make your own rules.
  7. The Most Fun We Ever Had: A Novel by Claire Lombardo: This book about four sisters definitely reminded me about my own relationship with my sibling. These four sisters are completely different from one another! Violet is riddled with anxiety and has a dark past to answer to; Wendy is a young widow trying to find her way in modern dating; Grace digs herself deep into a lie that she can’t seem to get out of; and Liza is a brilliant professor facing a huge life challenge and decision at the moment. There is so much more than meets the eye with these sisters.
