Summer to-read list

Posted by

I recently made a purchase that I’m hoping will revolutionize my summer reading. I bought an outdoor blanket that can easily fit in my backpack along with a book. So now, there’s no field I can’t conquer. No tree I can’t make my own. It’s pretty liberating to just pick a spot to sit down and read. No more wasting money on overpriced drinks just for the privilege of sitting on a crowded patio (although the Balzac’s patio in the photo above is pretty great). No more searching parks for empty benches in the shade. I’m not exactly an outdoorsy person, but I make an exception on days where it’s just too nice to do anything other than sit outside. I’m still working on my TBR list for the summer, but here are the books I plan on starting with.

My Year of Rest and Relaxation
by Ottessa Moshfegh

Pasta, pane, vino: deep travels through Italy’s food culture
by Matt Goulding
(I loved Matt’s book on Japan Rice, Noodle, Fish. Can’t wait to read his take on Italy.)

A place for us
by Fatima Farheen Mirza

Sex and the city and us: how four single women changed the way we think, live, and love
by Jennifer Keishin Armstrong
(I read her book Seinfeldia and really enjoyed it, so I’m really looking forward to this one.)

The art of the wasted day
by Patricia Hampl
(I honestly know nothing about this book. I’m just a big fan of that title.)
