What I'm Reading Next (23)

Oh, July....one of my favorite months. The summer days seem to stretch on endlessly and they are filled with so much promise. But the big question is...can I actually find time to sit and read amidst all the other summer events? Fingers crossed I have a better reading month than last month.  Here are the books that are on my TBR list for this month. I surely won't get to them all, but these are the books I am picking from.

Surfside Sisters by Nancy Thayer 

You can always count on Nancy Thayer for giving you a good beach read.  Usually her novels aren't absolute hits for me, but they are perfect for a lazy day at the pool or beach. This one is about a woman who returns home to Nantucket to face her mother, her ex-best friend, and her former crush. It sounds like the ingredients for a delightful beach read!

Queen Bee by Dorothea Benton Frank

Same as Nancy Thayer, Frank's novels have been hit or miss for me, but I just have to give this one a try.  It's about a woman who moves to Sullivan's Island to start over. I'm a sucker for a coastal Southern setting. How gorgeous is this cover?

Meet Me in Monaco by Hazel Gaynor and Heather Webb

I love all things Grace Kelly. I find her life really fascinating and I am excited to dive into this historical read.

You guys know I love a good historical read in the summer and I think this one sounds really intriguing. It involves dark family secrets and a Southern cotton town in the 1920s.

Fellow bookworms, how cute does this one sound? It involves an introvert, Nina, whose father dies and she finds out that she has another family that she didn't know about that lives nearby. 

Next Year in Havana by Chantel Cleeton

I read her most recent novel first (which I probably shouldn't have) and I thought it was pretty good. I am really curious about this one. 

The Light We Lost by Jill Santopolo 

I have the paperback of this book and it's been collecting dust. I may throw it into my beach bag this vacation, because I like paperbacks at the beach over my e-reader.  I've heard this one is a bit of an emotional read; I like the star-crossed lovers vibe. 

I also didn't get to a few from June's TBR list: The Islanders, One Night at the Lake and The Orphan's Song.  I hope to read them by the end of the summer.

What do you plan to read this month? Are any of these books on your TBR list? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.


  1. I love all these summery covers! I'd love to read Nina Hill, and Meet Me in Monaco sounds amazing.

    1. I am loving all the covers, too! Meet Me in Monaco is one of my most anticipated summer reads. I hope it doesn't disappoint. Thanks for visiting, Angela!

  2. So many great choices! I would read the Hazel Gaynor one for the cover alone.

    1. Right? I am in love with that cover - so excited for that read as well. Thanks for voting, Michele!
