Summer Reading List

I love "Beach Reads" often referred to as Chick Lit.  I realize this type of reading isn't going to increase my intelligence, but sometimes it's just nice to read something mindless and fun.  Here are a few that I have enjoyed this summer:

The First Husband - Laura Dave
Typical chick-lit book.  Easy to read and entertaining.
5 out of 5 stars


The Other Woman - Jane Green
I love Jane Green!  This one did not disappoint.  It's about the relationship a woman has with her mother-in-law and how that can affect a marriage.  So glad I do not have a MIL like this one.  I felt so much for this character. 
4 out of 5 stars


French Lessons - Ellen Sussman
This book is almost like 3 stories.  You will enjoy it if you have been to Paris or want to go.  Although I liked it and read in just a few days, it left me wanting to know more about the characters.  Felt a little unfinished
2 out of 5 stars


A Bad Bride's Tale - Polly Williams
Another fun read with some shocking twists. 
4 out of 5 stars


Then Came You - Jennifer Weiner
This is my favorite out of my summer reading.  Even though it's chick lit, Weiner tackles some deeper issues like infertility, alcoholism, and homosexuality...just to name a few.  Very, very good. 
5 out of 5 stars
