Our Summer Reading List
What if you could spend the next month lying in a sunny garden, reading, with a giant bowl of cherries at your fingertips? If ever a time to distract yourself with a captivating story, that time is now. We’ve arranged an epic summer reading list for a luxuriously loungy day of self-care, stories, and a healthy dose of escapism.
Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens A painfully beautiful first novel that is at once a murder mystery, a coming-of-age narrative, and a celebration of nature.
Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie An examination of blackness in America through the lens of a powerful, tender story. A brilliant novel about race and identity that holds the realities of our times before us.
Normal People by Sally Rooney A stunning novel about the transformative power of relationships. Now a Hulu Series, this story of mutual fascination, friendship, and love demands to be read in one sitting.
Untamed by Glennon Doyle With rich prose and intimate reflection, this memoir explores the joy we discover when as women, we stop striving to meet the expectations of the world, and start trusting the voice deep within us.
Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer As a botanist, Indigenous woman, and a celebrated professor and writer, this exploration of our relationship with the natural world embraces the notion that plants and animals are our oldest teachers.
