Recent Reads:: v.1

I've managed to knock out quite a few books already this summer! Here are a few of my favorites:

#GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso
  • Sophia Amoruso's story of builing a $100M company from the ground up was truly inspiring. As a young woman in the business world myself, I enjoyed her honesty about the highs and lows she encountered along her journey. I found her story and advice to be very motivating. This is definitely a book that I will read again someday as I continue my career as a business woman.
Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
  • I loved this book so much! The build up leading to "Trivia Night" left me not wanting to put the book down. My predictions were completely wrong, and the twist at the end was perfect. I highly recommend this book as a summer read. You will not be disappointed. 
Dark Places by Gillian Flynn
  • I'm not going to lie, this was a hard book for me to read. I'm not sure what it was that made it a more difficult read, but there were several times when I felt like throwing in the towel and not finishing it. That being said, I'm glad I stuck with it and finished it. It was so weird and twisted that it just left me needing to know what happened. I'm eager to see how the movie compares to the book.
Paper Towns by John Green
  • This was a quick, easy read. I really enjoyed the mystery of not knowing what happened to Margo and trying to decipher the clues she left behind. I was slightly disappointed in the ending, but overall I enjoyed the book. The movie came out last weekend, so I am hoping to find some time to go see it in the next week or so.
What books have you read this summer?

  1. Well at least two out of the 4 were wins. I don't like to hear that you were disappointed in the ending of Paper Towns.

    1. I'd say all 4 books were wins, but Big Little Lies and #GIRLBOSS were definitely my favorites out of them. Maybe you'll like the ending of Paper Towns more than I did!
