Summer Reading List ‘21

My goal of reading 50 books this year is a long way off, but I’m hoping these books with fill my summer, get me closer to the goal and set me on the right path to meet that goal next year.

A Lonely Girl is a Dangerous Thing by Jessie Tu

I’ve been reading this since September and have struggled to really get into it. Not sure if it’s the story or that I haven’t been able to sit and read a nice big chunk of it. Anyway, this is on my list to finish this summer.

Ghosts by Dolly Alderton

I picked this up the other day and I can’t wait to get stuck in. Dolly’s fiction debut is about a 32-year-old Nina who dives into online dating only to be ghosted by the men. On top of that her mother wants a mid-life makeover and her friends seem to be slipping away. I loved Dolly’s memoir so I can’t wait to get stuck into this.

Tennis Lessons by Susannah Dickey

This is a debut novel by Susannah Dickey and is about a young woman’s rocky road into adulthood stopping in at each year along the way. I haven’t seen too much around this book, but the description intrigued me.

Hot Little Hands by Abigail Ulman

Another debut novel and is also in a similar vein to Tennis Lessons, but is about a group of eight young women as they straddle the line between adolescence and adulthood.

Beach Read by Emily Henry

Beach Read sounded like a fun Summer novel when I read the description. “A romance writer who no longer believes in love and a literary writer stuck in a rut engage in a summer-long challenge that may just upend everything they believe about happily ever afters,” according to the Good Reads description. It just sounded like an easy read to breeze through in the Summer.
